New York Post receiving heat for slimy headline

I like puns as much as the next guy, but maybe the New York Post needs to rethink what they think is punny.

This past Monday, the publication released a slashing article that stated that former Texas A&M wide receiver Thomas Johnson attacked and murdered a random jogger in Texas.

Although the story is frightening, the headline seems to have a different take.

Johnny Manziel is not part of this tale nor is he mentioned in the story. Perhaps this is all that the New York Post has left, headlines. We need Jay Leno back to tell us if this is worthy of our attention.

Maybe they wanted to say, “What is black and white and red all over?”

Do you think the NYP took this too far?
