The Onion Posts a Vulgar tweet about Quvenzhane Wallis and Comes Under Fire

Satirical website The Onion is in hot water following a tweet it sent out about 9-year-old Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis.  During Sunday’s Academy Awards broadcast, the official Onion Twitter account posted a harsh message about the “Beasts of the Southern Wild Star” that has the Twitterverse up in arms.  Users immediately came to Wallis’ defense, slamming the satirical site for the “joke.”

Now, I’ll be one to say that Wallis is 100% over dramatic for a 9-year-old.  It’s as if she has queue cards or something.  I’ve seen her on Ellen and other talk shows and it’s the same stuff.  It’s like, you’re 9.  Stop acting like this.  You’re not an adult yet.  Go play with something.  But I must agree that the Onion went a little to far here.
