Edmonton Sun unaware Holocaust references are in terribly poor taste (pic)

At least that’s about the only logical conclusion that one can arrive at as to why the Edmonton Sun made the horrendously illogical and tragically disgraceful decision to incorporate a Holocaust reference into the headline on the cover of its Canadian Football League/Edmonton Eskimos preview located in its sports section.

Shockingly, the newspaper experienced a tremendous amount of backlash over the enormous gaffe and has since apologized.

Yeah, extremely insensitive indeed. Good call. A sensible esponse for an utterly deplorable decision. Too bad the paper’s editors couldn’t have come to that conclusion on their own.
