Twitter Is Absolutely Raging About This Infuriatingly Sexist Daily Mail Headline
“The 1950s called and asked for their headline back.”
If you haven’t already seen the Daily Mail’s Tuesday front page headline, then brace yourself, because you’re about to get mad. Like, really mad.
The newspaper covered yesterday’s meeting between British PM Theresa May and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, but instead of talking about the politics that the leading political figures were there to discuss, the Daily Mail chose to focus on something else: their appearance.
“Never mind Brexit, who won Legs-it” reads the headline.

Not surprisingly, Twitter is absolutely livid and people have taken great delight in trolling the newspaper for their offensive front page.

Legs-it. The UK’s in an unparalleled state of flux but when its most influential leaders are meeting, yeah, let’s look at their legs. Christ

Imagine putting something so sexist on ur front page in 2017?? Imagine thinking Legs-It is a good pun??

Also, “legs-it” isn’t even a very good pun. What does it even mean?
