AUTOCORRECT CAN THWART the best of us. Today, Naomi Campbell became its latest victim.

The supermodel was trying to tweet a heartfelt congratulatory message to Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, but autocorrect decided to barge in and mess the whole thing up for her.


Mmf. Malaria.

At the time of writing, the tweet is still there and ’malaria’ is trending on Twitter – no small thanks to this crowd of jokers.

Congrats Malaria. Congrats.
