I can obviously just nuke my cookies and it will go away, but I thought cyclingnews.com would want to know. I have no expectation of anything happening, just wanted to speak my mind. I find it disgusting. Maybe being a father of 2 girls informs this.
As far as misleading, I won't click on it so I don't know. Whatever the actual story, it's a crass and grotesque exploitation of a family's pain. Thanks for looking into the guidelines Stryder.
