Newsweek Takes ‘High Road’ When Pence Family Cat Dies: ‘Mike Pence’s Pets Won’t Stop Dying’

Vice President Mike Pence and his family lost one of their beloved pets this week.

Second Lady Karen Pence announced the sad news about Pickle, the family’s “sweet kitty of 16 years”:

So Newsweek posted an article titled “Mike Pence’s Pets Won’t Stop Dying”:

Included in the article are also tweets from the Pences announcing the deaths of two other family pets — both within the last 14 months.

This tweet was in June, after losing another cat, Oreo:

And this October 2016 tweet, after they lost their beagle, Maverick:

The article by writer John Haltiwanger is actually sensitive to the Pence family’s losses, as well as their love of pets — which the headline belies.

As a result, some Twitter users didn’t take too kindly to it:

Perhaps a lesson to be learned?

Clearly, the headline doesn’t match the content of the article.

In today’s fast-paced world of social media, let alone people who tend to comment on or share posts based solely on reading headlines, that can be a troublesome predicament.

For all concerned.
