Quvenzhane Wallis is at the center of an Oscars controversy after satirical outlet The Onion called her the C-word in a tweet.

The offensive message about the 9-year-old Best Actress nominee, cast as Annie earlier in the day, was posted during the Academy Awards and pulled down amid backlash.

The Onion’s “joke” read: “Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a c**t, right?”


It was retweeted hundreds of times before the outlet deleted it.
