Inaccurate, misguided and offensive

Dear Editor,

Mark Hunt’s choice of words to describe the Francis Ngannou’s U.F.C loss (“The Super Samoans Shocking Call,” 2/4/18) were inaccurate, misguided, and offensive (and I shall not repeat them here) 

Would that they had not been reprinted so conspicuously multiple times in the pages of your paper. 

How dare Hunt describe what he and other U.F.C members experience in their chosen profession by trivializing nonconsensual and traumatizing sexual assault. Meanwhile, pages away the assault of a sixteen-year-old that resulted in a broken collar bone is described merely as a “noise row”? (“Samoan man jailed over noise row”). 

How ironic.
