Daily Mail Criticized For Sexist #Legsit Coverage Of Theresa May & Nicola Sturgeon — Responds With ‘Get A Life’!

The Daily Mail is sexist AF!

Daily Mail Fail strikes again!

The British tabloid is in the news for publishing a truly sexist and disgusting front page (above) comparing the legs of British Prime Minister Theresa May and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon!

What the actual fuck?!

The two female leaders were in a meeting Monday to discuss Brexit and Scotland’s request for independence, but of course Daily Mail chose to focus on their body parts instead of the actual important work they were doing. How typical.

Well, the Internet wasn’t letting them get away with it. Multiple people expressed outrage over the horrendous front page (and mocked the fuck out of it!):

In fact, the Daily Mail has officially been reported to the press regulator over its supremely tone-deaf coverage. Green Party deputy leader Amelia Womack has submitted the issue to the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso), citing the breaking of the editors’ code as well as treating women with “contempt.”

Womack said the paper broke clause 12 of the code, which states that editors must “avoid prejudicial or pejorative reference to an individual’s race, colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation or to any physical or mental illness or disability.”

For its part, the Daily Mail has refused to apologize and even told critics to “get a life.”


Stay classy, DM!
