File under: “Utter filth.”
Convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky was apparently transferred to a new correctional facility, and the integrity-starved TMZ decided to turn the story into an opportunity to joke about Sandusky’s pedophilia:
It’s Jerry Sandusky’s lucky day — because he just got transferred to a brand new jail … and today’s lunch is hot dogs … and buns.
A rep for the State Corrections Department in PA tells TMZ, Sandusky was transferred to Camp Hill correctional facility in Lower Allen this morning from the Centre County Jail, where he had remained in custody since his trial.
According to the rep, today’s lunch is hot dogs, sauerkraut, and of course … baked beans.
TMZ had plenty of fans who thought the headline was nothing short of hilarious. But fortunately, some Twitterers stepped up to show that decency is not completely dead:
I know this is TMZ we're talking about, but I still feel they could have come up with a better headline than this. http://t.co/LXPDRRFM

"Jerry Sandusky — Feasting on Wieners Behind Bars" Nice work, TMZ. Now go away forever.

@TMZ This is a new low, even for you.

There's lots of things it's ok to be punny about, TMZ. A convicted child molester is probably not one of them.

We couldn’t agree more. Shame on TMZ.
