Hypocrites at The Onion, and Hollywood

Steve Hannah

During the Oscars on Sunday, The Onion made an obscene comment on its Twitter account about Quvenzhané Wallis. It referred to the 9-year-old girl as a “c***.” After fielding a ton of complaints, an apology was granted. Greg Hughes, who issued the tweet, said his remarks were “crude and offensive.” He added, “No person should be subjected to such a senseless, humorless comment masquerading as satire.” Steve Hannah, CEO of The Onion, said “we are taking immediate steps to discipline those individuals responsible.” He closed by saying, “Miss Wallis, you are young and talented and deserve better. All of us at The Onion are deeply sorry.”

 
They both lied. They only apologized because they got bombarded with criticism from liberal Hollywood about trashing a minority girl. If they had the standards they say they have, they wouldn’t have printed a vile piece about the pope on December 13.
 
PLEASE NOTE: The following remarks made by The Onion contain extremely offensive language.
 
The article says the pope gave permission to make a porn flick at the Vatican. The film crew, we learn, had to “install glory holes in the confessional booth” (they are used by homosexuals for fellatio). “This place has some f***ing beautiful art and s***. And it’s only going to look better dripping with hot jizz.”
 
The movie is said to feature “masturbation, blow jobs, girl-on-girl action, strap-on crucifixes, cum shots, triple-anal penetration, semen swapping, papalingus, bondage, and a gang-bang scene titled, ‘Immaculate Erection,’ which features several archbishops and the Virgin Mary.”
 
In other words, The Onion has no standards regarding “crude and offensive” work when it comes to Catholics. Nor does it discipline those who make vulgar comments about Catholicism. But it bows to the protected classes.
