Questionable Oscars headline using the word ‘slave’ of the day

They have since changed the headline, you know, because every other person who saw it was much like Don, thinking, “Umm…is this really the headline you wanna go with…?” You don’t suppose Huffington Post did it that way in the first place because they knew it’d get attention do you? Nah
