Rupert Muchoch’s New York Post Taunts Subway’s Jared Fogle With Front Page Prison Rape Joke

Gothamist weighs in:

A few months ago, President Obama implored the media and entertainment outlets to stop making prison rape jokes, due to the fact that rape, in or out of prison, is a horribly insensitive thing to make light of. But not if you’re an editor at the NY Post, where they think it’s hilarious to advocate prison rape as a suitable punishment for confessed pedophile and former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle. The Post obviously didn’t need to make light of prison rape to report the story; the Daily News also featured it on the cover, breaking their streak of painted ladies outrage covers with the pun, “Sub Human.” The Post, on the other hand, seems to be of the opinion that the only way to fight a rapist is with more rape.

The headline has spurred a minor flame-war on Twitter.
