Is this the world's biggest front-page typo?
The Washington Express has published maybe the biggest "typo" in front-page history.
Can you spot it?

Of course you can. For a story about "More than 150,000 people supporting women's rights" the Washington Express chose to use a massive picture of people gathering in the symbol for men.
It hasn't gone un-noticed.

Shout out to The Washington Post Express who accidentally put the MALE symbol for the WOMAN'S march on their cover today pic.twitter.com/xGS0XE8RTd— Kimberly Betsill (@kimmybetsill) January 5, 2017
People have been saying that "maybe they're making a statement" with the man symbol, rather than a massive design fail.
But that would be more convincing if they hadn't deleted their initial tweet proudly announcing:
Today’a cover: The Women’s March on Washington started on Facebook. Now it’s expected to be the largest rally linked to the inauguration. pic.twitter.com/wfw3Qd3S6a

In future, The Express promise they'll google what the symbol for female looks like, before they splash it across the front page.
Like this? Check out this train wreck. You won't be sorry.
