We don’t expect Cosmo magazine to be the bastion of journalism and accuracy and today Cosmopolitan lived all the way down to those expectations.
In a tweet covering the Manchester bombing, the fashion and lifestyle magazine made a kindly attempt to highlight the charity of Muslim Manchester citizens. Unfortunately whomever approved the headline and the featured photo neglected to notice the man in the picture is Sikh…not Muslim.
The article itself does mention Sikh drivers, but the theme is centered around Muslim response. Cosmo either couldn’t actually find a Muslim taxi driver to go with their narrative or this is what happens when you let a college intern run your social media.
Either way this is a fail. Seems to happening a lot on Twitter lately.
