The New York Observer Refers to Greg Kelly as ‘Rape Stud’

When The New York Post published its absurd cover the other day calling the alleged victim in the Greg Kelly rape claim a “rape beauty,” people were upset, but sort of brushed it aside because it’s the Post, and they do stupid crap all the time.

Somehow, The New York Observer didn’t think leaving the situation alone was an appropriate response, and instead called Kelly a “rape stud” in a headline on its website today. As Azi Paybarah, a politics writer for Capital New York points out on his blog, the headline has since been taken down. David Freelander, a reporter for the Observer, said the headline was “cross-posted from another NYO blog w/out our OK.”

The new headline simply reads, “Greg Kelly’s Triumphant Return to Good Day New York.” Probably should’ve just went with that in the beginning.
