Naomi Campbell had an unfortunate Twitter autocorrect fail on Saturday.

The supermodel was trying to congratulate Malala Yousafzai, the brave Pakistani teenager whose advocacy for girls’ educational rights led to a Nobel Peace Prize this week.

What Campbell actually typed was: “Congratulations malaria on your #NoblePeacePrize #2014” (see below).


Campbell was eventually alerted to her mistake and corrected it.

She wrote, “Darlings my iPhone and I are at odds it seems I type a word it seems to spit out another , forgive me CONGRATULATIONS @malalafund on your #2014 NOBLEPEACEPRIZE #YOUNGESTEVER # RESPECT # #inspire #admire.”

Second time’s the charm.
