Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post Keeps Its Klassy With Headline: “Fire Kills Tranny In Dairy Den”

Rupert Murdochs New York City daily rag, (and I do mean RAG) used the headline above yesterday to describe the tragic death of 47-year-old woman, known only as Dee, a prostitute who was found dead in a fire at about 6 a.m. in Jamaica, New York on Saturday.

The disgusting sensationalist headline also set the tone for many hurtful transphobic and homophobic comments.

Please contact The New York Post and DEMAND that they stop the hurtful and hateful rhetoric.
