Matt Drudge Just Splashed the N-Word Seven Times Across the Front of The Drudge Report
The top headline is accompanied by a picture of film director Quentin Tarantino and links to a review of his latest film Django Unchained in The Hollywood Reporter.
Because the headline is in quotes you might actually think the word is repeated seven times in Todd McCarthy's review. It's not. The word is only referenced twice in the entire article. Once as "n-----" and another time as simply the "n-word."
As The Atlantic Wire points out, the Twittersphere hasn't reacted kindly.
"Drudge's current headline is a distillation of his entire election year coverage," Tweets Bob Schooly.
"It's likely that Drudge did it because he's been dying to scream it himself," Tweets Nuerocat.
It could be worse. He could have used the headline for his always racial tension stroking coverage of Miami's Urban Beach Week.
