The Daily Mail‘s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Etta James Headline

Major U.K. newspaper the Daily Mail had a case of foot-in-mouth today when they reported on the death of legendary blues and R&B singer Etta James:

“At Last” is Etta James’ best-known hit song, but without context, it appears the Daily Mail is just terribly enthusiastic about the singer’s death. The paper has been getting some grief about this over Twitter, but the headline has since been changed to something more appropriate.

This is the 2nd Etta James headline fail in a row for the Daily Mail. In December the paper ran a headline that read “At Last singer Etta James terminally ill with cancer.” That headline also received criticism, and appears to have since been changed.
