The editors of GQ issued a farcical apology to the cover stars, admitting they made "egregious mistakes in the process of creating the cover" and "violated GQ's rigorous standards of editorial excellence and the laws of nature".
The Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue caused a Twitter storm back in January as fans pointed out the odd errors in the Annie Leibovitz photograph featuring a host of A-list actors.
GQ, however, made a decision to issue a full-blown apology.
GQ writes that their 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". "As I know you accept my 3d hand", she tweeted. Silverman sits with her legs crossed, embracing her fellow comedy stars with both arms, while also somehow planting one hand on the floor beneath the stage.
GQ mocked Vanity Fair's epic Photoshop fail as they unveiled their 2018 Comedy Issue cover Thursday.
"GQ will be conducting a thorough internal audit of our cover-development process", a note from the editors said. We dreamed it up in collaboration with three of the funniest comedians we know, so hopefully people have a laugh.
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).
