The Sun's bizarre front page on Adam Johnson has many people unhappy
What does this even mean?
The Sun have published a very controversial front page featuring Adam Johnson, the former Sunderland player yesterday convicted of sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.
With a headline of 'Paedo In His Speedos,' the tabloid have published what is reportedly a nine-year-old photo of Johnson doing a fitness test in his underwear.
Given the gravity of the charges against him, many people feel that the headline and image attempt to find needless (and distasteful) comedy in a story about a child being groomed.

I won't sully anyone's timeline with it but tomorrow's Sun #AdamJohnson front page so utterly wretched you'll want to wash if you touch it.

Have the Sun really used a picture of Adam Johnson doing fitness tests in his pants from 9yrs ago on their front page? Dear oh dear.
