Huffington Post slammed over 'inappropriate' Caption Competition
Angelina Jolie and William Hague met in London today at the G8 and pledged to end sexual violence and rape in conflict in an historic announcement. Ms Jolie is a Special Envoy for the UN Human Rights Council.
Mr Hague said that the crimes were like the slave trade, saying rape in war zones is "one of the greatest and most persistent injustices in the world".
Nevertheless, this did not stop the Huffington Post's UK Facebook Page chose to run a 'supposedly' amusing caption competiton with a photo of William Hague and Angelina Jolie together, that encouraged a barage of inappropriate posts and sexual innuendos despite the undermining their meeting and the serious consequences to women that rape can have.
The Telegraph also thought it amusing to have a similar caption competition.
