Metro on Roast Busters

Is it just me, or is this a bit ick? According to a well-placed spy in Auckland media, in the December issue of Metro the usually amusing “20 Questions” column kicks off with:
1. After the Roast Busters saga, should there be a new criminal charge: “Drunk in charge of a vagina”?
I used to write tasteless jokes for Metro, so can hardly criticise, and I’d always regarded the Holocaust as the only subject that was off-limits for “humour”, but actually rape is another.

Definitely ick, and yes, rape is not a joking subject.
