    I really don`t get why that tweet was so offensive. I thought it was funny.

    She is so young and cute and adorable. Calling her a c.unt is bitingly mocking the cattiness of celebrity coverage while being just outlandishly absurd.

    Nobody in the world could have thought they were remotely serious. Get a f.ucking grip people.

    @HolyGod--Agreed. I`d say more, but I think you put it perfectly.

    People don`t f*cking get satire.

    It was meant for Onion readers, who it would have made sense to. It got away and took on a life of its own.

    But it`s one thing to use satire to highlight the inherent negativity surrounding the coverage of shows like this, but the second it started getting worldwide coverage is when it became a problem. The target is a girl too young to understand the satire, and the media will make damn sure she`s exposed to it for their own ratings.

    From what I understand, it`s possibly the first time they`ve ever apologized for anything they`ve done, but with a child involved it`s understandable that they might regret this particular incident.

    Plus if they stuck to their guns on it the coverage would go on for weeks, and the kid doesn`t need that. Better to let it go away.
