The Internet Is Freaking Out Over the Washington Post’s MASSIVE Cover Mistake
We all make mistakes, but we don’t all make ‘em on the cover of a major publication — and we’re not just talking about a little boo-boo. The Washington Post made a MASSIVE mistake on their cover, and the internet is freaking out over it.
This morning, The Washington Post Express featured a cover story regarding the Women’s March, the largest protest by women on Capitol Hill. The only problem? Well, take a look for yourself…
Yep, that’s the male symbol. Oops.
The internet noticed, natch, and the reaction was enough to put a snarky smile on your face, because really, SMH!

That WaPo Express cover is so perfectly terribly wrong, and also an excellent metaphor.

Either that, or you’ll just be pretty darn ragey over the entire sitch.

The Washington Post Express has since apologized, but still. Oof.
This is how the cover should have looked. We apologize for the mistake. pic.twitter.com/MKKOkHPV8T
