The other day we published this blog about Hatchimals that weren’t hatching, and others that appeared to be in heat while panting “fuck me.” However, in our title we referred to the broken ones as stillborn Hatchimals, after that term started trending on Twitter:
These tweets about stillborn #Hatchimals are making me laugh.

A few loyal turtle riders on Facebook mentioned how disappointed they were to see this term used in a satirical blog about Hatchimals, because of the pain and trauma that comes along with giving birth to a stillborn baby. And they’re 100% right, and we were in the wrong for using that term. As someone who has never experienced this, it is insensitive to people who have experienced it. And as you know, we are usually the last people on earth to admit when something is insensitive. The term “triggering” is thrown around loosely in our society, but this is one case where it’s perfectly acceptable to say it. You don’t come to Turtleboy to be reminded of a tragedy you experienced.
We trust our readers, and we know they would never come forward with gripes unless they’re legitimate. We are not above admitting when we fucked up. If you think we’ve crossed a line about anything, feel free to let us know. As long as it’s legit, we will always hear you out. Thank you for your understanding.
