    Hi Peter,

    How much respect would you like to show a suspected sex offender preying on teenagers?

    Would you consider the facefit to be beautiful?

    And do you consider overweight to be anything but synonymous with fat?

    Looking forward to your thoughts.

    What a wildly inappropriate time to make a joke headline. Poor girl.
