Extra! Extra! Have you heard the news? Actress and soon-to-be-Royal Family in-law Meghan Markle has … a gray hair. Marie Claire noticed this and thought it worthy to write about.
The fashion magazine tweeted “Meghan Markle Has A Single Gray Hair,” and included a zoomed-in close up with a fluorescent square, which pointed out the strand in case anyone missed it. And, unsurprisingly, people online were taken aback by such a non-story.
Marie Claire has since deleted the tweet; the story remains up, albeit without the close-up shot.
The article, it must be said, is very sympathetic toward Markle’s lone gray hair. It deemed the head protrusion “glorious because, same.” Whatever that means!
Here are a few of the responses to the initial tweet.
Whoever pitched this “story” needs to never pitch another story again.

It’s true that Markle’s hair has made headlines before, but not because of a cosmetic difference that could only be noticed by squinting just so. Critics on Twitter are clearly wondering why a beloved fashion magazine would dedicate an entire article to one single un-dyed hair. And, same.
