“Sperminator” Schwarzenegger scorned over love child

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – To fans, he was movie star tough guy the Terminator. Then he turned to politics and was affectionately dubbed the Governator. But after acknowledging that he fathered a child out of wedlock, Arnold Schwarzenegger was swiftly given a new name — the Sperminator.

That headline and lede paragraph is distasteful, ugly, and unworthy of a respectable news organization. Sperminator? Ugh!

Just disgusting and shocking. Shame on you.
