The Onion Apologizes for Offensive Quvenzhane Wallis Tweet

by at . Comments

The Onion has issued an apology for its WAY-over-the-top Tweet last night regarding Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis.

Facing pressure from... just about everyone with a sense of right and wrong, CEO Steve Hannah has released the following statement, in which he addresses an employee at the company referring to the nine-year old as a cunt.

"On behalf of The Onion, I offer my personal apology to Quvenzhané Wallis and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the tweet that was circulated last night during the Oscars," Hannah wrot on Facebook.

"It was crude and offensive - not to mention inconsistent with The Onion’s commitment to parody and satire, however biting.

"No person should be subjected to such a senseless, humorless comment masquerading as satire.

"The tweet was taken down within an hour of publication. We have instituted new and tighter Twitter procedures to ensure that this kind of mistake does not occur again.

"In addition, we are taking immediate steps to discipline those individuals responsible."

"Miss Wallis, you are young and talented and deserve better. All of us at The Onion are deeply sorry."
