There are a few things that spring to mind when you think of Prince Edward Island. Red sand and potatoes, for example. But mostly it's Anne of Green Gables.
Which is why it’s especially offensive that Us Weekly fucked up naming where Anne lived.
This is insulting.
You had one job, Us Weekly.
And you done goofed.
You must understand — this isn't merely a typo. This is a serious trespass against the good people of PEI.
And while Us Weekly has since corrected their grave error, make no mistake.
The people of PEI do not forget.
