Huge backlash as another major publication confuses Ellis Genge and Lewis Ludlam
A major publication ‘The Belfast Telegraph’ has come in for criticism after it used an image of Lewis Ludlam to convey a story about Ellis Genge.
This comes just a month after BBC Sport did the same with Ludlam and Genge leading to a fierce backlash from the England stars.
This has occurred just in the last hour.
Ellis Genge spoke out last month after the BLM protests.
After his comments about the statue of Edward Colston being dragged into the river in Bristol – the BBC covered a story with Genge’s face in the thumbnail.
Fans online have reacted with dismay to this latest error from a major publication.
The Belfast Telegraph hastily amended the picture on their site but not before swathes of angry fans made their feelings known about the picture error.
Here’s the first mention of the mistake online.
