It’s not a typo. I meant to misspell her name

How many times did the Yahoo! Shine writer misspell Cara Delevingne’s name? Every time! It starts in the headline of the article (just so you’ll notice) and continues throughout the article, in every photo caption.

But that’s not all! The writer displays a wobbly grasp of punctuation: There shouldn’t be a hyphen in “barely there” and the period belongs after the closing parenthesis:

cara 1

Unless Miranda Kerr has two or more grandmothers who collectively own a farm, this apostrophe is wrong, and there should be a comma to separate the misspelled Ms. Delevingne from her age, which should be in bold:

cara 2

As if to prove she didn’t make a typo, the writer continues with the abuse of Ms. Delevingne’s name in every caption:

cara 3

cara 4

cara 5

cara 6

cara 7

Hey, I’ve always said, “If you can’t be right, at least be consistent.”

    Things were simpler in the Old Days, when stars had simple names, like Marilyn Monroe, Rosalind Russell, Audrey Hepburn, June Allyson, Theda Bara, Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish.

    The Yahooligans probably would have gotten those wrong, too.
