In Cobb County Georgia, a local high school published a “Top 20 Reasons why President Obama should not be re-elected” in their April Fools edition of the school newspaper. However, the joke is on them this time as the article has incited some backlash from the students and community.

However, many found it offensive. The school newspaper, The Zinger issued an apology in this mornings student body video broadcast.

“Response to Stinger Newspaper Article

Recently, the Sprayberry newspaper The Stinger published an article trying to humorously comment on the President. In regards to the Obama article, we would like to say that the article was meant as a piece of satire. The article was published in our April Fool’s section, The Zinger, of the newspaper and was meant to be a comedic take on the media’s comments on the President. Satire is the use of humor, irony or exaggeration to poke fun at certain parts of society. We realize that this did not come off as we intended, and we sincerely apologize for offending anyone.”
