Yeah, that’s unfortunate. Too bad the dozens of people at CW didn’t catch that, right? Well, as Buzzfeed points out, the ad is completely fake.

The original ad simply reads “Superman is coming to Supergirl,” not “Superman is coming in Supergirl.”

The creator of the original ad appears to have taken the alterations quite personally:

Given the lifespan of Thing on the Internet™, it’s tough to say when things “die.” In a sense, the altered version of the poster will probably live on forever. But in another way, the altered version will probably be yesterday’s news by midnight.

Either way, if you see this one online, let people know that it’s too good to be true.

I am not going to say that someone doesn’t have a right to feel what they feel... but damn.... if your skin is THAT thin, what the hell are you doing on the internet? Or in our world? Or you know... not in an Amish cellar somewhere?

Not to mention someone that produces for public consumption.

I just am boggled by this. How does this person even talk to another human, let alone do an advert for a major television show and not pee themselves in the process out of fear and revulsion?
