The WaPo Express Did a Cover Story on the Women's March. They F*cked It Up
So, the Washington Post’s WaPo Express did a cover story on the Women’s March on Washington. It’s, uh, it’s, well, look at it.
Today’a cover: The Women’s March on Washington started on Facebook. Now it’s expected to be the largest rally linked to the inauguration. pic.twitter.com/wfw3Qd3S6a— Express (@WaPoExpress) January 5, 2017
For what it’s worth, this is the Mars symbol, indicative of the male gender.
This is the Venus symbol, indicative of the female gender.
This is the symbol of the revolution.
And this is Cybill.
People noticed this fuckup pretty quickly.

When your designer is sure they know what they’re doing and nobody double-checks that they’re right… https://t.co/CGvsSfSzv5— Michele Tepper (@michelet) January 5, 2017
Update: They sorry.
We made a mistake on our cover this morning and we’re very embarrassed. We errnoeously used a male symbol instead of a female symbol.— Express (@WaPoExpress) January 5, 2017
OK. Like…I DON’T UNDERSTAND. I am forgiving and understanding of typos, because, like I DO THOSE. I’m not even going to comment on the “erroneously” error above. But, like, how? HOW DO YOU FUCK UP THAT BAD?
Also, they’ve now deleted the tweet of the cover image. It’s captured above in the header, and also, IT WAS THE COVER.
DOUBLE BUBBLE UPDATE: They deleted their apology too because, you know, typos.
