In a headline calculated to raise laughs, the Post declared it was less than impressed by the couple's grand Italian nuptials: ALERT (yawn): Kimye weds.
In five short sentences, the Post tagged the couple as "jackasses," called Kim a "sex-tape star," Kanye an "egotist" and ended by reassuring the world that "the republic still stands."
The New York Post has dedicated miles of newsprint to Kim over the years, and most headlines featuring her have been unflattering. Sample this: What The Frock? Would someone please tell Kim she's pregnant! (with a picture of an expecting Kim in an outsize dress).
On Twitter, some said the Post's brief announcement was the most hilarious thing ever:
Others said they were needlessly unkind:
Yikes. That NY Post "article" about KimYe seems unnecessarily mean. I hate that THIS is where we are as ppl now http://t.co/6HDI5PPegv-- britni danielle (@BritniDWrites) May 27, 2014
