Onion Mocks Itself for Offensive Tweet

At least it can laugh at itself. The Onion published a satirical piece on Friday mocking itself after the company was forced to apologize for a tweet that called 9-year-old Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis a “c--t.” “At press time, the editorial staff of The Onion said that they could not remember ever having felt so happy in general with their lives, nor more content with the state of the world as a whole and their place in it,” the article read. The article claimed that “a record number of Onion readers” considered the “last five or six days in particular” a “veritable high watermark for the company.”
