Look, it’s clear that the editors of this newspaper were trying to be creative by using a piece of a grapefruit as the letter “G” — but it’s still unbelievable that this headline made it past the copy desk.
This horrible editorial decision comes out of the Free Press of Mankato, Minn. Many readers have been poking fun at the newspaper after a user posted a photo on the Free Press Facebook page. Others were offended by the headline and the fact that people are joking about the phrase “rapefruit.”
“I’ve never heard of rapefruit but it sounds like an intense way to start my day,” one Facebook user wrote.
Another added, “I didn’t know that rapefruit was good for every meal. I tend to avoid rape-anything, but that might just be me.”
