It's become common practice for online publications to beef up article titles in an attempt to lure in readers. What you'll see below is a little beyond the realm of what's considered acceptable, however.

Johnny Manziel, obviously, has nothing to do with the story.
So far, the publication hasn't backed down and changed its title. But it hasn't been getting a very favorable response on social media.
