Tasteless: The Onion calls 9-year-old actress Quvenzhané Wallis a c**t

http://twitter.com/#!/TheOnion/status/305900584278556672

We know The Onion is all about satire, but Wallis is 9 years old! What is wrong with those people?

So someone at @theonion is surely getting fired tomorrow, yes? Fucking reprehensible to call a 9-year old a cunt.

@theonion really needs to get their life and APOLOGIZE to that CHILD. She is a CHILD!! And you are WAY out of line.

I never heard of The Onion before tonight but after that tweet, I’m glad. Calling a 9 year old a cunt? Shit is trashy.

— Aye.(@bella_faccia) February 25, 2013

Someone at The Onion is getting fired.

I hope whomever at @theonion sent that tweet gets exactly what they deserve. From both the law and the street.

I usually defend @theonion but just no.

— Travis Greene (@travisegreene) February 25, 2013

Oh, boo to the Onion. I generally find them hilarious but I draw the line at calling 9 year olds ugly names, even in jest.

— Holly (@hollye83) February 25, 2013

@theonion not ok with this!

— DreyO (@MynameisOdrey) February 25, 2013

Bad move, Onion.

More reaction:

Just read through a few hundred replies to @theonion tweet calling a 9 yo a cunt. Zero people found funny.

Look, I get comedy. I get satire. But what @theonion said about a 9-year-old girl nominated for an Oscar is atrocious.

— rolandsmartin (@rolandsmartin) February 25, 2013

And who are the 417 fools who retweeted @theonion‘s shameful comment about Quvenzhane, and the 306 that favorited it? Talk about idiots!

Update, 1:49 am ET:

The Onion has deleted the tweet. But like we always say, Twitchy is forever.
