ENRICHMENT FAIL: Cosmopolitan Mistakes Sikh for Muslim in Manchester Bombing Story
I’ve been working on site security all day, so things might be a little slow since I’m scanning everything possible. But while I was doing that, a really funny story came across the wire. It seems like the editors of Cosmopolitan think all brown people are the same.
Needless to say, Sikhs are not happy about this particular turn of events.

It looks like they KNEW what they were doing, which makes it even worse.

Imagine if Infowars or Breitbart had mislabeled this badly. They would be called racist, the author would be doxed, and the left would be haughtily ranting about this all day. Speaking of the author, Tess Koman, she looks like a well read individual. How could this have happened?
Tess the Mess, indeed.
