A Los Angeles Newspaper Celebrated ’12 Years A Slave’s Oscar Win With The Worst Headline Imaginable

UPDATE: Michael Anastasi, vice president of news and executive editor for Digital First Media’s Los Angeles News Group (which publishes the Daily Breeze), called the headline “tacky, ridiculous, stupid” in a phone call with Poynter.org’s Andrew Beaujon on Tuesday, adding that he “winced” when he first saw it and that his “body is still contorted.”
