Why is the "a" asterixed in this headline? Is "balls" now a word not fit to print?

The whole thing is so silly. "Balls" because a slang term for testicles because people didn't want to use a word like "testicles" and so they picked an innocuous term for something that seemed to have the same shape. But by doing that, does that make the innocuous term non-innocuous? We might as well have just stuck with "testicles."
