Disgust at article

Madam – I am writing to you to register my disgust at the fact that you allowed the piece 'Let me shake hands with that brave fan', written by Donal Lynch, to be published in your edition (Sunday Independent, June 2, 2013).

The piece in question was a glib article about an incident at a Beyonce concert where an audience member appeared to slap the singer's bottom. The woman is a singer, she was doing her job.

This article belittled the act by saying that the tickets to the concert were "about the price of a lap dance", implying that the man deserved to do this because he had paid money.
