A day after publishing a defensive op-ed penned by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the Wall Street Journal's editorial board wrote a headline for an article about Sen. Susan Collins' (R-ME) "yes" vote on the nominee that some say referenced the nature of the allegations against him.


"Susan Collins Consents" read the editorial board's Friday night headline — and many Twitter users responded to it.

"WSJ editorial board makes a rape joke," Slate's April Glaser tweeted.

"Tasteful as always," the popular @nycsouthpaw account noted.
