John Mayer Edits The Huffington Post, Turns Out to be Wrong
As it turns out, John Mayer should really stick to his day (night?) job.
Mayer engaged in some copy editing last night on his Instagram story, posting a screenshot of a headline that included the number 2 as opposed to the word "two." "Rule: numbers 1-10 should be spelled out like other words," Mayer wrote on his Instagram.
Well, Mayer was wrong.
Huffington Post reporter Chris D'Angelo chimed in with the correction, pointing out that the one exception to the rule occurring in the headline.
Glad to see you reading @HuffPost, @JohnMayer. So, yes, that’s the rule...with one exception being in a headline.— Chris D'Angelo (@c_m_dangelo) December 5, 2017
Keep on ripping that w/ @deadandcompany. We journos got this covered. https://t.co/jiMrUXHW3A
And to his credit, Mayer proudly ate his slice of humble pie and offered up a joke.
I stand corrected. But can we at least agree that Trump Guts 2 is a really bad title for a movie?— John Mayer (@JohnMayer) December 5, 2017
