Reporting on Holly Holm’s memory lapse, the editors for yahoo.com seem to have forgotten that rapper Jay Z removed the hyphen from his name back in 2013:
Is a Kleinmani a special technique for grooming your nails? Yahoo! Style is featuring a story on Brit Kleinmani, who looks eerily like Brit Kleinman:
It took a team Yahoo! Style staffers to come up with this ridiculously wrong possessive of the plural noun models:
Apparently there was some disagreement in this brain trust as to where the apostrophe goes — before or after the S. So that put it before and after an S. (Just in case someone on the Style staff is reading this, here’s the scoop: the possessive of models is models’.)
Who is the singer who’ll be performing during the Victoria’s Secret show? I think that Yahoo! Style mentioned someone who might just be Ellie Goulding’s brother. Or maybe her father:
The writer didn’t just change the singer’s name, she changed her gender. That’s gotta be the worst misspelling of a celeb name I’ve seen in a long time.
It takes a team of Yahoo! Style writers to come up with this many mistakes in a single article. You’d think that one of the staffers would know how to spell Monique Lhuillier (this is a site about fashion and style, after all) or at least of the kiddies there would be familiar with “Gangnam Style”:
And Lorraine Schwartz doesn’t fare much better at their keyboards:

Good grief! How many mistakes can a Yahoo! Style writer make in just four words? Too many:
There’s so much to admire here: The reference to Duchess Katherine, which misspells her name. Then the implication that she’s the Duchess of Middleton, which is like two mistakes in two words.
But wait! It looks like someone at the Internet giant finally realized there’s a mistake (or two) in that caption, and attempted to fix it:
Oh, that’s so much better.
