Lauren Bacall, the legendary screen star whose career spanned more than fifty years, died yesterday from a massive stroke at 89. Though Bacall was known for her presence onscreen in more than sixty film roles, the Boston Globe memorialized her with, "She was just some wife of a famous guy—the role of a lifetime!"

When called out by Twitter users, the Boston Globe deleted the offensive mweet (new word for memorial tweet), and replaced it with a series of tweets that appeared portrayed Bacall as actress whose success was not determined by her connection to her man.
