Stephanie Wei offends Akronites with ‘arsehole of America’ tweet

Akron Beacon Journal columnist Bob Dyer didn’t like that “arsehole of America” crack — and he let Sports Illustrated and Wall Street Journal contributor Stephanie Wei know.

I approached her in the Firestone Country Club media building on Sunday, where she was pecking away on her laptop.

I held up my cell phone, displaying the tweet in question. She looked as if she been nailed in the back with an errant tee-shot.

I turned on my tape recorder.

“It was just a joke,” she said. …

After I confronted her, Wei issued the following tweet:
