GQ Publishes Mock 'Apology' for Cover of Women Comedy Stars

GQ Publishes Mock 'Apology' for Cover of Women Comedy Stars

Another day, another photoshoot fail.

GQ's version stars Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, and Sarah Silverman on the cover, with the mag promising readers that it's their "Best Comedy Issue Ever!"

At first glance, the cover looks like any other tribute to brilliant women who've captured the zeitgeist-until you realize there are four extra limbs floating around.

Meanwhile, on the new GQ cover, a random hand strokes Rae's shoulder, while the "Insecure" star appears to have a third, extra-long arm reaching around Silverman's body.

The three comedians pose in glamorous gowns, but a closer look reveals there are extra contorted arms and legs added into the image.

The publication was swift to apologize for this "error" with a post titled: "We Deeply Regret Our 2018 Comedy Issue Cover".

The CW Recruits Batwoman For This Year's Arrowverse Crossover
In the modern era, her legacy is taken up by the army brat Kate Kane, a lesbian expelled from West Point due to her sexuality. In fact, Batwoman was one of the most popular books of the early New 52 era before the creative team of W.

Fortunately, because people live for shade, the magazine's Vanity Fair reference was adored.

GQ has issued an "apology" to Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae and Sarah Silverman for the cover of their comedy issue. "Our intention was to celebrate the three super-funny superstars, who are all that is smart and perceptive and riotous and necessary in comedy right now".

"GQ will be conducting a thorough internal audit of our cover-development process", a note from the editors said.

GQ made a decision to go in for a ferocious bit of trolling in its new recent comedy issue, releasing a cover that lampoons the much-maligned cover of Vanity Fair's January Hollywood issue.

Actually, come to think of it, we did spot one flaw on GQ's cover: the type that screams "COMEDY ISSUE" (it would have been funnier without pointing out it's funny).
