A "Yeung" Fan

Can’t you read the handwriting on the wall, Entertainment Weekly? It’s a bit crooked and a tad messy, but it’s legible.

Steven Yeun, who plays Glenn on the AMC series The Walking Dead, took this photograph. The accompanying EW caption mentions “a young fan named Sean Jacoby.” That’s odd, because upon closer inspection I noticed that the boy signed his fan letter “Shaun Jacoby.” He may be young, but I’m guessing he knows how to correctly spell his own first name. Turns out, this “Yeung” fan has been misidentified. That’s enough to frustrate the living, the dead and the living dead.

The name of the game is accuracy — especially when it comes to names. Sean is dead wrong. (Or should that be “undead” wrong?) Shun Sean. Show Shaun.
