Onion Called Child Oscar Star Nominee a C*** on Twitter

I’m not too much of an Oscar fan as I know the winners will most likely be of Caucasian descent. However, I was surprised to hear that little child of color was nominated. Quvenshané Wallis, child star who appeared in the motion picture Beasts of the Southern Wild, was nominated for Best Actress only to be lost to Jennifer Lawrence from Silver Linings Playbook. (See? I told you a white person was gonna win.)

But it didn’t seem enough to some people that young Ms. Wallis lost. Some people felt the need to rub salt into the wound. A certain one of those people work for the Onion, a parody news site who pokes fun at – anything and everything. Only this time, the joke went too far as they posted a tweet about the young actress that reads:

Everyone seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenshané Wallis is some kind of c***, right? 

The tweet disappeared as fast as it came, but those of us familiar with how the internet works understands that even though something fucked up is gone, there will be people with enough savvy to capture it, record it and display it for the world to see. It has happened, and no amount of “I’m sorry, but…” and “It’s just a joke” faux-pologies will excuse grown-ass people who thought it was funny to call a little 9 year old child an expletive.

There is nothing funny about calling a woman a disgusting word, and it’s even more pathetic to refer to a little girl as such. I saw there are many others with enough sense to see how that was a call for a good, ole’ fashion ass whooping, internet style. However, you shouldn’t be surprised – You SHOULD NOT be surprised that there are some who considered the tweet as a LMAO moment. Get the fuck outta here.

Bottom line: Anyone who thinks its hilarious needs to have their heart examined. Anyone who defends the tweet in any way needs a heart transplant because it is surely needed.

Wallis is a little girl with a promising future ahead of her. She appeared in a movie as a star and not as a stereotype, extra or a running gag as Holly-white does people of color on purpose. She got to do something that’s rare for a lot of little girls her age and color.

And speaking of color, there is a good reason that racism is at play. Unless, the Onion has pulled any other misogynistic puns out of its ass against white women, then it’s a safe bet to assume that they targeted Wallis not just because of her gender, but her color as well.

  1. I expected bullshit about Quvenshané coming from Seth MacFarlane (and boy did it ever), but… no wait, I actually expected this from the Onion too. This isn’t the first time they’ve shot their mouths off and found themselves instantly having to recant it.

  2. “Anyone who thinks its hilarious needs to have their heart examined.”

    Uh, what heart?

    “Anyone who defends the tweet in any way needs a heart transplant because it is surely needed.”

    Add a soul to that order, will you.

  3. Wow…I’m absolutely speechless. Really? REALLY?!?!? Wow…

    I’m literally speechless…I don’t know what to say. I guess it’s because, again, I’m not surprised at shit like this. It’s just more of the same bullshit we expect from whites, and they will call us thin-skinned and say “It’s only a joke so GET OVER IT…”

    Wow. Calling a little girl the ‘c’ word…and you know me, Brotha, I use that word on adults, both male and female, quite a bit – so I have no objection to it in general! But for someone to say it about a kid…that’s beyond low on so many levels.

    The Onion just lost a reader in me. You’re right – they’ve NEVER used that word about any of the many white actresses they lampoon. Absolutely disgusting.

      1. When they’re of the age to crawl out of limos wearing short skirts, no panties, and with their legs spread so the world can view their filthy gashes – or ‘accidentally’ release a sex tape baring same body parts.
        Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan, Britney Spears, Kim Kartrashian, Anna Nicole Smith, Pamela Anderson…the list of over-rated, talentless whores is endless – but, you knew that already!

        Rhetorical questions crack me up! DERRRRRP!!!!!

  4. WHAT! WTF! Are you kidding me. This is a child. Why would someone say this kind of f$#@ up ish about a young child? Why! This just so fucked up. When I turned my computer on this morning and was still half a sleep and half awake. I couldn’t really comprehend. Now I’m home from work and this is really true. What kind of beast would do such a thing? I’m just shaking my damn head. I’m speechless and sick to my stomach. Fucking animals is what they are.

  5. And Seth Mcfarland tried to say something about in 16 more years she would be eligible to date George Clooney. The stupid joke fell flat. I hate the oscars. But little Miss Wallis is going places. Fuck these racist bastards.

  6. If the racist tea party and racist in general come after Obama and his wife and kids, why should we be surprised that the dogs would come after a child? If the baby got slapped on the plane last week by a drunk phucktard why should we be surprised?

  7. I went to be totally disgusted, and wondering if there is any hope for this country. Is there no end to this? Are there certain people, who are so racist, and so sick in the head, that they somehow feel threatened by a child, and the only way they can cope is by resorting to this type of behavior? I hope that a spirit of conviction settles on every last one of the ones who have harbored ill will toward this little girl. I suspect that most of them don’t have enough of a conscious left for it to even matter.
