Why the inverted commas?

I rarely post in feminism but I lurk an awful lot, have always had feminist views and have been educated by this board.

I was browsing the news earlier and came across this story. I'm confused as to why on earth the word rape is in inverted commas! The girl was 8 FFS, surely there is no plausible explanation as to how she could've given consent.

Can anyone else see any reason why they would use them or are Sky just misogynistic, rape apologists as well as arses?

Ah, mis-read it. Still odd. Think they were scraping the barrel looking for a picture there.
