Whoever writes the headlines for Daily Mail seems to be living pre-2016 and they just got trolled for it.
So yesterday, one of the headline writer for the Mail thought it was important to mention that one of the judges who ruled that Parliament must vote before Article 50 is triggered, is “openly gay”.
The initial headline read:
“The judges who blocked Brexit: One founded a EUROPEAN law groups, another charged the taxpayer millions for advice and the third is an openly gay ex-Olympic fencer.”
It wasn’t long before the Mail started to come under fire for feeling it necessary to mention the third judge’s sexuality. For some reason it decided to change its headline to,
“The judges who blocked Brexit include who founded a EUROPEAN law group and second who charged the taxpayer millions for advice.”
Well, J.K. Rowling was not happy with the headline and trolled the Mail in the best possible way.
She responded by Tweeting,
“If the worst they can say about you is you’re an OPENLY GAY EX-OLYMPIC FENCER TOP JUDGE, you’ve basically won life.”
