The April Fool's Day edition of the newspaper contains an article titled "Top Twenty Reasons Why Obama Should Not Get Re-Election" that has offended some people, reports CBS Atlanta.
The article contains reasons President Barack Obama should not be re-elected, such as "He's black," "He's half-white," "He is a Nazi," and "His dog is ugly."
The Cobb County School District released a statement after being contacted by CBS Atlanta that states, in part, "All of the items in that section are intended to be satirical."
The following is a response to the article posted Thursday on the school website:
"Recently, the Sprayberry newspaper The Stinger published an article trying to humorously comment on the President. In regards to the Obama article, we would like to say that the article was meant as a piece of satire. The article was published in our April Fool's section, The Zinger, of the newspaper and was meant to be a comedic take on the media's comments on the President. Satire is the use of humor, irony or exaggeration to poke fun at certain parts of society. We realize that this did not come off as we intended, and we sincerely apologize for offending anyone."
