How dare they?

This article, Dressing down for GQ -, contains the details about a highly offensive language in a web article posted at I went to see the article itself,here, and discovered that they had changed the offensive text, but there's no note and certainly no apology.
As one woman quoted in the Boston Herald put it, "How dare they?" How dare they say that someone with Down Syndrome is "ruined"? The rest of the GQ article is snarky, but no where else did they sink to the level of insulting people with intellectual disabilities. Of course, I must consider that they may have whitewashed other parts of the article as well.
