‘Savage’: Far-Left Salon Finds Itself on the Other End of Politically Correct Word Policing With Minaj Tweet


Oh, boy...

Far-left website Salon found itself on the receiving end of word policing after publishing a tweet Monday regarding rapper Nicki Minaj’s on-stage spat with Miley Cyrus during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night.

“The look on Miley’s face during Nicki Minaj’s savage, expletive-laden rant says it all,” the tweet read, linking to an accompanying article.


Twitter users quickly criticized Salon for using the word “savage” to describe Minaj — even though the story in question portrayed the rapper in a positive light.

Sensing the tweet could be a problem with its readers, Salon quietly posted another one with an altered headline: “The look on Miley’s face during Nicki Minaj’s raw, righteous rebuke says it all.”

But that wasn't enough to quell the outrage.

Within hours, Salon was accused of calling Minaj a "savage" rather than in reference to her possibly staged on-stage stunt in which she called Cyrus a "b***h."

Eventually, Salon just apologized for using the “poor choice of words.” Even so, a prominent Black Lives Matter activist still wanted more.
