The Daily Mail have caused people to lose it by posting an extremely sexist headline about Nicola Sturgeon and Theresa May. The headline reads, 'Never mind Brexit, who won Legs-it!'
Pretty much all major news sites have covered the scandalous front page, but all of them have been short to notice something much worse, the woeful grammar. Sorry Daily Mail, but you're supposed to end that question with a question mark, not a feckin' exclamation mark.
The meeting between the Scottish First Minister and the British Prime Minister was held to discuss the fact there is to be a vote from Scottish Parliament seeking another independence referendum. However, the Daily Mail decided it was more important to dismiss proper grammar and insult two powerful women all at the same time.
If you think the headline was bad, the piece itself is mortifying. The pathetic excuse of a columnist Sarah Vine, wrote that Sturgeon's legs were 'altogether more flirty, tantalisingly crossed... a direct attempt at seduction.' It's fair to say the good people of Twitter have been losing their shit;

Stop doing the Daily Mail's work for them by posting/promoting their front page. By all means be outraged but you're playing into their hand

I feel for all the trees that get turned into Daily Mail newspapers. Truly the darkest fate on Earth.

At the end of the day, if you're going to insult two world leaders and dismiss their political achievements, maybe ensure your grammar is up to scratch.
