Now the magazine is having to answer to a conspiracy theory that the editors intentionally gave the president-elect a pair of horns with the “M” from “TIME.”
The magazine denies this charge, saying it was “coincidental,” but Twitter is unsurprisingly having a field day.
Kudos to the designer who made the "M" look like devil horns. We will send you care packages after Trump throws you in prison. pic.twitter.com/jsqKxC8IOq

Donald Trump is Time magazine person of the year. Are those subliminal devil horns or Bugs Bunny rabbit ears? pic.twitter.com/kJv2otTNtL

Ok so it's probably just me but has Time magazine given Donald Trump the Glasgow traffic cone treatment or Devil horns? pic.twitter.com/FCXdGNTmxi

Maybe Time is just getting its revenge for Trump’s insulting tweet from a few years ago, when he was displeased about not making its list of most influential people.
The Time Magazine list of the 100 Most Influential People is a joke and stunt of a magazine that will, like Newsweek,soon be dead. Bad list!
