Good sub-editors are important, just ask Julia Roberts, who had one helluva week after an unfortunate headline did a full round of the internet.
And hey, with newsrooms copping the slash n’ burn treatment on the reg, we’re not even surprised this happened.
Regardless, the typo is a doozy.
The story was praising Roberts regarding her performances in the new flick, Ben Is Back, as well as the series Homecoming – roles which seem a lifetime away from the romantic comedies she’s best known for.
A correction was made a few days later…
But the damage was done…

“Get rid of the copyeditors,” they said. “What could go wrong,” they said. https://t.co/6wDGOc42D7

R and H are nowhere near each other on the keyboard. I choose to read it literally.
