Us Weekly Said Anne Of Green Gables Lived In Nova Scotia And Islanders Are Pissed


Posted on

Which is why it’s especially offensive that Us Weekly fucked up naming where Anne lived.

Breaking news: Province of PEI declares war on @usweekly

This is insulting.

@usweekly Anne is NOT set in Nova Scotia. It's set in Prince Edward Island: a province in Canada. Please fix it, it's insulting those on PEI


You had one job, Us Weekly.

. @usweekly claims #anneofgreengables takes place in Nova Scotia #getamap #trygoogle #princeedwardisland #pei…

And you done goofed.

LOL, @usweekly. It's Prince Edward Island, not Nova Scotia. Come on.

You must understand — this isn't merely a typo. This is a serious trespass against the good people of PEI.
