The Onion calls 9-year old actress a c**t....

Her name is pronounced (Kwa-von-janay)

Kwon for their risque satire, popular website ‘The Onion’ pushed the envelope too far Oscar Night by calling 9-year-old Oscar nominee, Quvenzhan Wallis, a “cunt” on Twitter.

Nominated for her break-out role in “Beast of the Southern Wild,’ the future A-Lister, recently tapped to revive the role of ‘Annie,’ continues to woo hearts all over Tinsel Town. Apparently forgetting what satire means, When ‘The Onion’ attacked Wallis on Twitter, there was nothing humorous or vaguely intelligent about it.

Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhan Wallis is kind of a cunt, right? #Oscars2013—

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

Lindsay Lohan. Haley Joel Osment. Drew Barrymore. The Olsen Twins. All child stars. Which of them was called a cunt at 9? Oh none? Ok.

Would the @TheOnion say the same thing if the individual celebrity in question was Caucasian? This is a legitimate question.

A racist/sexist/misogynistic joke about a child isn't "OK" or "acceptable" just because @TheOnion is known for satire and off-color jokes.

Step 1: Unfollow @TheOnion. Step 2: Email their editors. Step 3: Bum rush their FB page. Step 4: Stop reading. Maybe then they'll listen.

The tweet has been deleted, but outraged Twitter users have taken screenshots of their feed at the time of the comment.

Of course, we all know what the Onion was going for, but they failed miserably and this is not going away.
Our Black girls deserve to be cherished, respected and protected just as much as their White counterparts. Before it’s all said and done, ‘The Onion’ will understand this is not a game.
