We Are Not Amused

[Trigger Warning: Violence]

Why did FoxNews put this article in its "Entertainment" section?

FYI, the article is about how an actor in the movie The 40-Year-Old Virgin arrived at his girlfriend's house only to find her drinking with another man. He then proceeded to, admittedly, stab his girlfriend 20 times. The article then presents the actor-stabber's excuses for doing so (he says he thought she was someone else).

The article then has him lamenting:

"I still can’t believe the knife I was holding was responsible for all those injuries.”

Now that's an interesting take on who, or rather what, possesses moral and physical accountability.
