The Sunday Sun Headline That's Got People Irritated


They are talking about it on Twitter. Apparently people are irritated with Sunday Sun for its choice of word in a headline today. Many people think the word 'rape' is too strong to be misused at any time.

Abuja based Virgin Kids academy are like a football team. The Golden Eaglets beat them 3-1 at the NFF / FIFA goal project in Abuja. The problem causing outcry is the way Sunday Sun captioned the story. Many feel the use of 'rape' to tag the Golden Eaglets victory over 'Virgin Kids' is inappropriate.
