This weekend, the Sunday Samoan posted a very inappropriate image - a suicide - on the front page of their paper. And it gets worse.

The photo in question shows transgender, or "fa'afafine" in Samoan, woman Jeanine Tuivaiki inside a church where she's reported to have been found dead on Friday. Jeaninine is believed to have committed suicide.

Throughout the story Ms. Tuivaiki is referred to as a man, and that, along with the decision to publish the photo, have drawn widespread condemnation on social media.
