Penn State Punishment Reactions: Twitterites Describe NCAA Sanctions Using 'Rape' As Metaphor

The web site Twitchy collects reactions from throughout Twitter on the NCAA's punishment of Penn State for its role in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal. As with anything on Twitter, where millions of people who have nothing to lose from behaving like idiots can say anything they want, some of the reactions are pretty amazing.

Yeah man, totally yeah. #Irony #WTF #RapeMetaphor #LOLOLOLOL #Bieber, amirite? Not that it's any real surprise, but it's never fun to see humanity operating at such a low level of moral intelligence. Anyone who would use "rape" as a metaphor to describe an institution's punishment for covering up actual molestations is a small person indeed.
