GQ Issues Apology For Photoshop Fail On Their Latest Cover That Was Definitely Not A Fail

Is it a real fail though?!

GQ Issues Apology For Photoshop Fail On Their Latest Cover That Was Definitely Not A Fail @gqmagazine Twitter

GQ magazine has just released the cover of its comedy issue and it's blown the internet away for two reasons.

First, there was the major photoshop fail that showed a rogue arm going around the shoulder of comedian and actress Sarah Silverman, when it should have been fellow actress Kate McKinnon's leg.


Everyone thought it was just another magazine mistake but then, GQ released an apology on their website to the three cover stars for the mistake and when everyone realised that there's not just one rogue hand in the image, but four, something smelt fishy.


GQ's statement on their website reads:

"GQ would like to apologize to Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, and Sarah Silverman for the egregious mistakes made in the process of creating the cover for our 2018 comedy issue, the latest in our pantheon of mostly annual love letters to the funniest humans we know. 

"Our intention was to celebrate the three super-funny superstars, who are all that is smart and perceptive and riotous and necessary in comedy right now. We deeply regret that the results violated GQ's rigorous standards of editorial excellence and the laws of nature.

"In an effort to ensure that an error of this magnitude never happens again, and because this sounds like the right thing to say, GQ will be conducting a thorough internal audit of our cover-development process. 

"To demonstrate our commitment to transparency, we will release the results of the review, quietly, in 17 months, on Medium.

"And to you, our respected readers, we know that GQ must work doubly hard to earn back your trust. Until then, we'll be ignoring our mentions.

"Come back to next week to read the profiles of our three wildly talented, extremely two-handed cover stars. In the meantime, we'll be praying that Donald Trump tweets something about Chrissy Teigen in the next hour so everybody forgets all about this."

Okay... so it's a photoshop fail, for the cover of a comedy issue and GQ released THIS statement.

Do you think this 'photoshop fail' was done on purpose?

Us too...

Nice one, GQ!
