ESPN FC has a horrifying article up the site’s front page headlined “Why Messi could join Man City.” Now, the post isn’t horrifying for its content—I didn’t read it as I have no interest in Messi fanfiction—but rather because of this disturbing Photoshop job that accompanies it:
LOOK AT THAT THING. WHY DID YOU ‘SHOP MESSI’S HEAD ON AGÜERO’S BODY LIKE THAT? DIDN’T YOU NOTICE THAT THEIR SKIN TONES DON’T REALLY MATCH? AND HOW AGÜERO’S STOUT NECK SUPPORTING MESSI’S TINY LITTLE HEAD MAKES THE WHOLE ... CREATURE LOOK SORT OF LIKE A JACKED GIRAFFE? WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?
Update [6:13 p.m.]: Someone at ESPN FC must have finally taken a good look at the abomination they’d created because they’ve changed the picture on the front page link.
