Daily Mail Australia Used A Picture Of Section Boyz To Illustrate Their Story On A Gang In Melbourne

The mistakenly used image has since been taken offline.

January 31, 2017


A picture of U.K. rap group Section Boyz has been used in an Australian newspaper article about a local gang in Melbourne. On January 30 the Australian arm of the Daily Mail published a story on the Apex Gang, who they point to as being behind a series of car-jackings, armed robberies, and home invasions.

However, as the tweet above shows, the online version of the story originally came with a blurred shot of Section Boyz. The group appeared on stage with Drake at London's O2 Arena on the same day that the offending article was published. The original picture of the group is taken on a London bus and was originally posted in October 2016. The picture has since been removed from the Daily Mail site.


Reps for the Daily Mail and Section Boyz were not immediately available for comment.
