People Can’t Stop Making Fun Of This Dumb Story About A ‘Gran, A Mum, And A Daughter’ Getting Mistaken For Sisters

by 3 years ago

Remember that story at the beginning of February about a mom, grandmother, and daughter who were confused for sisters? That drove the Internet into a tailspin at the time. Now it’s inspired an even-dumber copycat story from the U.K. tabloid paper, The Sun.

Except here’s the thing: The subjects of the story — Gwen Slade, 65, her daughter Jemima Slade, 44, and granddaughter Lily Slade, 16 — look nothing like sisters. They actually just look like, um, a grandmother, her daughter, and her granddaughter, which makes this the biggest non-story in this history of dumb internet non-storys.

And now people can’t stop trolling The Sun over just how moronic this claim is. Here are some of the best tweets compiled by Buzzfeed

At least the reactions are priceless?

Some days I wake up and purposely bang my head against a door because Internet publishing is just a snake constantly eating its tail. I’m starting to think I need therapy for how stupid “stories” on the Internet are becoming.
