victim-blaming

This could be the most egregious example of victim-blaming ever printed

A woman whose body was found frozen “rock solid” in a freezer at her family’s Sydney had a “strong, aggressive” personality and often nagged her “quietly spoken” husband, according to friends of the couple.

These are the opening lines in a news story published by The Australian on Saturday under a headline that read, Body in freezer: Husband ‘a quiet man‘.

The “quietly spoken” husband is being questioned in relation to the horrific discovery of his wife’s body by NSW police last Wednesday. Renxi Ouyang was found dead, inside a newly purchased freezer, in the apartment they shared with their two children, aged 4 and 6, in Pymble.
