To think the Sun has reached an all time low with it's front page today

(91 Posts)

Reeva Steenkamp is dead and the Sun still think it's acceptable to run pictures of her in sexy bikini poses.

No, I wouldn't say that was an all time low from the Scum at all.

Printing that Liverpool fans pissed on and robbed dead/dying Liverpool supporters at Hillsborough?... now that was low angry

YANBU. Think it was vile act by The Sun; and they very def did not pick that photograph of her as a mark of respect to choose to - amongst many other things in her life - work as a model. They used her being slaughtered as a reason to whack a full page bikini shot to fill their front page. Can only hope the fact so many people ARE pissed off may mean it helps as a tipping point in other Sun 'content'.

Cannot imagine her family's grief, thoughts are with them.

It's typical of The Sun. When they accused the Liverpool fans of pissing on the bodies of their fellow supporters as they died, they may as well have pissed on their bodies themselves. And now they are wanking over this woman's body.

Don't buy The Sun. Don't click on links to it online. Don't collect it's tokens for a cheap holiday. Because it is a vile rag and you are worth more than it.

She was stunning. Her natural pictures show her beauty even more than the work shots. It shows that anyone can fall prey to DV. Her family must be devastated at losing their girl.

Respect is difficult.

Because it can be discussed that people respected her choice of career and in her death used a picture that respected her choice to do so.

Its depressing as fuck. Makes me wonder what type of society i am raising my children in... Sleeping toddler in bed with me.

Maybe reeva wouldnt have minded but surely its best to err on the side of caution and show some respect to a dead woman and her grieving family?!!

StuntGirl Sat 16-Feb-13 01:21:01

I respect her choice McNew, I just wish the media would respect her death.

StuntGirl Sat 16-Feb-13 01:19:31

Oh ok. Just checking grin

Sad that some people are actually saying that sad Like anything she ever did could deserve being murdered. What's wrong with people? She could have tap danced on his nuts and it wouldn't have deserved this sad

Myself

McNewPants2013 Sat 16-Feb-13 01:17:35

I don't see nothing wrong with the picture used, she made the choice while alive to do bikini modelling and I think that we should respect her choice to do so.

I do ask mysf would she have picked this picture or would she have preferred something else

5madthings Sat 16-Feb-13 01:14:20

At fb not you!

StuntGirl Sat 16-Feb-13 01:12:34

Are you angry at me or the fb page? Because I didn't say I thought that..

5madthings Sat 16-Feb-13 01:10:49

Yes stunt she must have 'asked for it' or been shagging about so its ok he got mad and shot her... angry

5madthings Sat 16-Feb-13 01:09:03

Tbf there are people saying its wrong eyc as well but he has a lot of support. Vile jokes as well.

StuntGirl Sat 16-Feb-13 01:08:38

Seriously, we're blaming murder victims now?? What, did she 'have it coming to her' or something? God this shit depresses me.

Darkesteyes Sat 16-Feb-13 01:06:35

I had a nasty feeling it would be like that on fb 5mad. I have avoided it today and nearly deactivated my account a few weeks back because of some class prejudice shown by some former acquaintances. fb seems to be a place for spouting all kinds of hate.,prejudice,sexism and mysogyny.

5madthings Sat 16-Feb-13 00:59:07

I know dark its bloody depressing. I kust looked at op's fb page, the amount of support and victim blaming is horrid.

StuntGirl Sat 16-Feb-13 00:53:31

I don't think anyone's judged her for posing for the photographs? They've judged The Sun for choosing to use them under these circumstances though...

Darkesteyes Sat 16-Feb-13 00:51:19

exactly 5mad. I agree. Sport and celebrity seem to be seen as more important than a young woman who has lost her life and her grieving family and friends. i despair ffs.

superstarheartbreaker Sat 16-Feb-13 00:50:37

And I guess as she wouldn't have had a choice about the pics being published due to her being dead and all then the sun is a bunch of scum.

superstarheartbreaker Sat 16-Feb-13 00:48:57

TBH if she chose to make money from the pics then thst is HER choice and she should not be judged for it because lets face it folks; she could. She was stunning. What is shite is that the sun implies that her death is more of a loss because she had a good rack etc. Shocking story and very sad.

5madthings Sat 16-Feb-13 00:28:09

I just retweeted the link by dark saying "and what about the anguish of Reevas family?!"

StuntGirl Sat 16-Feb-13 00:22:25

Oh god darkesteyes that's fucking horrible. Innocent until proven guilty I know, but perhaps the papers could save their sympathy for, y'know, the victim.

Post that headline if he's found innocent, by all means. But christ sad
