This is cringe-worthy.
That TIME magazine cover showing President Noynoy Aquino was fake. He was indeed in the list of the magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World but he wasn’t one of the chosen seven to get a cover.
The fake cover first appeared on Facebook, which the PDI (dubbed as the Yellow paper) picked up.
The 7 in the list that got their own special edition 2013 TIME 100 covers were artist and entrepreneur Jay Z; U.S. Senator Rand Paul; actress Jennifer Lawrence; film star and activist Aamir Khan; activist Malala Yousafzai; SpaceX and Tesla founder Elon Musk; and tennis champion Li Na.
