Select T Magazine Staffers Make Un-Funny Cancer Jokes

T: The New York Times Style Magazine staffers Horacio Silva and Andy Port caused quite a social media stir with their Golden Globes coverage.

Silva, who tweeted real-time coverage via T’s Twitter account @TheMoment, bashed Dexter star Michael C. Hall‘s dark-colored beanie. The tweet:

“Is Michael C. Hall playing Bob Marley in an upcoming movie? Don’t get the hat or what he is hiding under it. HS”

Unfortunately, unbeknownst to to Silva, Hall wore to cover hair loss as a result of a recent treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Gawker, Perez Hilton and WWD quickly jumped on Silva’s back, but to be fair, he quickly apologized when he realized the snafu:

“It was a question I posed entirely without malice…I know from the effect it had on my family, how devastating cancer can be and it’s not something that I take lightly. I apologize for any hurt that I may have caused.”

NY Times staffer Andy Port, however, straight up called people fat.  In a slanderous post on T’s The Moment blog, she opened with “Maybe it’s just me, but I could have sworn that some of the ladies who showed up at the Golden Globes on Sunday had put on a little weight.”

No names were named, but pictures of Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Courtney Cox accompanied the post. “You could definitely see the difference if you concentrated solely on the upper arms,” quipped Port.

What is this: the New York Times or high school? Maybe Ms. Port should check out Glamour’s plus-sized models to realize that “womanly” is in.
