Comedy Around the Web, Vol. 26

The Onion issued an apology for a joke they posted on their Twitter account during the Oscars that referred to nine-year-old Beasts of the Southern Wild actress Quvenzhané Wallis as “kind of a cunt”. The joke caused outrage from some, and was defended by others (including comedians Matt Kirshen and Dave Anthony), as often the case in situations like this. It also prompted this parody apology from former Onion staff writers at Thing X. Feel free to share any thoughts you may have left in the comments, but please, keep it civil.
