Tone-deaf

2017-06-14-tone-deaf
According to the Guardian, Australian website Mamamia has apologized to author Roxane Gay after publishing a podcast interview with text that detailed all the ways they "set up" for her interview:
"Will she fit into the office lift? How many steps will she have to take to get to the interview? Is there a comfortable chair that will accommodate her six-foot-three, ‘super-morbidly obese’ frame?"
I have no idea how anyone is meant to take those questions (are they a terribly tasteless joke?), but I assure you: I see tall, extremely heavy dudes quite frequently, and they seem to glide through life without people sending out memos about the possible dangers they pose to chairs and elevators.
