Quvenzhane Wallis is receiving the same treatment that Gabriele Douglas received after winning her Olympic Gold medal for the best ALL AROUND gymnast for team USA. And who can forget the NRA’s ugly Ad questioning why the First daughters deserve Secret Service protection.
And how about this AWFUL joke Seth MacFarlane told last night: Quvenzhane Wallis won’t be “too old for Clooney” for another sixteen years – Seth MacFarlane #fair #Oscars2013 I don’t give a shit if MacFarlane insulted every ethnic group, gender or class. We’re not going to tolerate verbal or physical attacks on our children.
MAJOR FAIL, DOUCHEBAG!
Quvenzhane to AP report: “My name is not Annie. It’s Quvenzhane.
9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, correcting the AP Reporter who said she was “just going to call her Annie. Naw, Son; you take the time to call Quvenzhane by her BIRTH name.
And then there’s this STRAIGHT UP foolishness from Chrissy Teigen, singer John Legend’s squeeze:
Teigen’s a plain old coward, who has no claim to fame, other than being on the arms of Legend, picking on a 9 year old child.
- Quvenzhane tells AP reporter her name’s not “Annie.”
- The Onion calls Quvenzhane a “cunt.”
- Seth MacFarlane links Quvenzhane to dating George Clooney
- Chrissy Teigen, an unknown want-to-be-noticed girl friend of Singer John Legend imagines folks thinks she’s supposed to like Quvenzhane and calls her “cocky.”
WOW! Mind-numbing to read how evolved adults have become, isn’t it?
We’re seeing a pattern developing here with our fine, smart, and talented YOUNG black girls, especially after they’ve achieved HIGH levels of success. Folks seem to think they can behave badly, and disrepect them.
Quvenzhane Wallis on the Red Carpet
On behalf of The Onion, I offer my personal apology to Quvenzhané Wallis and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the tweet that was circulated last night during the Oscars. It was crude and offensive—not to mention inconsistent with The Onion’s commitment to parody and satire, however biting.
No person should be subjected to such a senseless, humorless comment masquerading as satire.
The tweet was taken down within an hour of publication. We have instituted new and tighter Twitter procedures to ensure that this kind of mistake does not occur again.
In addition, we are taking immediate steps to discipline those individuals responsible.
Miss Wallis, you are young and talented and deserve better. All of us at The Onion are deeply sorry.
This is what you do, folks; you take RESPONSIBILITY for behaving badly.
Onion commenter: “I’m pretty sure the joke was supposed to be making fun of the way people talk about celebrities, not Quvenzhane Wallis, so this apology just makes me depressed. The smartest writers in america were forced to apologize to the idiots of america who didn’t even get it. A huge chunk of the people reacting on Twitter were black people imagining a racist attack on themselves. The whole reaction was just pathetic.”
I’m sure this commenter is: 1. does not have a daughter & 2. is a white hipster racist.
So what’s the message, folks? These fools want to belittle, diminish and thwart our young Black girls’ confidence. They’re afraid of their success, because you know they can’t have any of them thinking they can be another First Lady, like Michelle Obama. Get ready to be called out and smacked down for the stupid, because Our girls will NOT be denied the respect, goodwill, and love they deserve. We love you Quvenzhané, Gabby Malia, Sasha, and ALL our black daughters, sisters, mothers, aunties, and grandmothers.
Quvenzhané may not have won an Oscar last night, but she certainly is worth her weight in goal, in 3 Chics book. And I”m sure, just like her character Hushpuppy in the movie “Beasts of the Southern Wild, we will like Quenzhane, STEP UP, STARE DOWN the BEASTS, and say; “Look, go take care of your own. I gotta take care of mine.”
