GQ Magazine published an article Thursday attacking President Donald Trump for failing to call for the death penalty for Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock.
The piece was quickly followed with a correction since Paddock was already dead and could thus not be given the death penalty.
“An earlier version of this article used a headline noting that Trump had publicly called for the death penalty in the New York attack, but not the Las Vegas shooting in particular. That discrepancy is probably related to the fact that the Las Vegas shooter is dead. We regret the error,” GQ’s correction reads.
GQ apparently forgot the Las Vegas shooter killed himself after firing on a crowd of concertgoers, killing 59 and wounding more than 500, making death penalty demands useless. (Related: Las Vegas Shooter Had This Written In His Hotel Room).
