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.

School Newspaper April Fool Joke gone bad.Students at Sprayberry High’s newspaper issued an apology about the article stating that it was intended to be a satirical piece on that made fun of what was being said in the media. However, many found it offensive. The school newspaper, The Zinger issued an apology in this mornings student body video broadcast.

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.”
