Twitter Outraged Over Classless @TheOnion Tweet About Nine Year Old Girl Actress

Live tweeting the #Oscars, @TheOnion engaged in its usual satire but this time crossed the line, making a joke about 9 year old Quvenzhane Wallis, calling her a "cunt." This is hard for some people to understand, given that she's a little Black girl but just imagine if the same were said of Apple, Suri, Jackie Evancho, etc. The entire staff would go down within 24 hours.

Quentin Tarantino has been heavily criticized for his frequent use of the word "nigger" during tonight's red carpet interviews #Oscars2013

I'm so over people complaining about Quvenzhane's name. Cause somehow we all learned how to say Schwarzenegger and Zsa Zsa Gabor....
Franchesca Ramsey @chescaleigh
@TTHOOM she's already been cast in the Annie remake being produced by JayZ and Will Smith. They'll learn
Franchesca Ramsey @chescaleigh
@FatBodyPolitics willful ignorance on the part of ppl complaining about your tweet

Seth made inappropriate sexual joke about a child and compared domestic violence to slavery. Disgusted but not surprised #Ocars

@AlexMLeo the Q line sounded specific to her age but the others not so much
Franchesca Ramsey @chescaleigh
so when are we going to start acknowledging that a HUGE part of the disrespect Quvenzhane is receiving is bc she's a black child?
Franchesca Ramsey @chescaleigh
.@glacechase it was a joke about Clooney made at the expense OF A CHILD. if you don't understand, unfollow now.
Franchesca Ramsey @chescaleigh

Franchesca Ramsey @chescaleigh

No seriously, you should've ended up in your mother's hair @theonion
dream hampton @dreamhampton
Ok, I feel better enough to take a Twitter break.
Franchesca Ramsey @chescaleigh
.@boatzilla clearly, this is hard for you. he insinuated that she is qualified to be in a relationship w him despite being NINE YEARS OLD
Wendell Pierce @WendellPierce
@TheOnion: Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a cunt, right? >And you should get your ass kicked

@javachik I'm really aware who the Onion is. Also clear that it takes opposing, human thumbs to tweet, that I'm talking to an actual person
Franchesca Ramsey @chescaleigh
.@StrawberriCurls @HollywoodUMF it's not that "cunt" is a racial slur. it's that a black child CONTINUES to be disrespected
Franchesca Ramsey @chescaleigh
@boatzilla please unfollow me. you're not ready for this conversation and i don't have time to teach you.
