Penguin News calls President Cristina Kirchner “bitch”
Falkland Islands, February 8, 2012
The Kelper newspaper Penguin News uploaded a photo of Argentina President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, whose file name was “bitch”.
If someone wanted to save the image, the default file name was “bitch”, reflecting a clear insult to the president.
The editor of the newspaper, Lisa Watson, was asked via Twitter by a user about this outburst, and she replied, “emmm oops – not now you’ll find.”
Watson sought to excuse herself by appealing to “dry humor” of the editors of the newspaper.
After the enormous upheaval that the incident caused in social networks, the newspaper renamed the file and now says Kirchner.
