What the KasapaFMOnline Apology to Kaya Adwoa Forson should have read


On the morning of Monday August 8, 2016, we published a story on Ghanaian Swimmer Kaya Adwoa Forson.
On the morning of Monday August 8, 2016, we IRRESPONSIBLY and APPALLINGLY published a story that referred to the TALENTED 14 YEAR OLD Ghanaian Swimmer Kaya Adwoa Forson, as SEXY.
The headline referred to her person as ‘Sexy’. We have since corrected the error.
Our UNFORTUNATE HEADLINE indeed reflects how low we have sunk in performing our duties as journalists. If sexiness could win Olympic medals perhaps we could have an excuse for being the PERVERTS you have rightly pointed us out to be.
Kasapafmonline.com wishes to apologize to Adwoa Forson and all who were hurt by how the headline was captioned. The story was in no way seeking to objectify her person.

KASAPAFMONLINE.COM REALLY HAS NO EXCUSE.  This is just PLAIN STUPIDITY and an ABSOLUTE DISREGARD for OUR RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS CHILDREN.  We did not only objectify Adwoa Forson, we also effectively condoned inappropriate sexual behaviour towards Junior High School PUPILS.
We wish Adwoa Forson well at the Olympics. As started this morning, we are celebrating all members of Team Ghana at the ongoing Games.
ADWOA FORSON is only 14 years old but she is already making Ghana PROUD. We as fully grown adults have failed at our jobs and fucked up Ghana even further.

Thank you
