Saoirse Ronan has graced the latest cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK, but some people are not happy about it.
The cover of the magazine’s February edition landed this morning, and it features the Irish actress looking stunning in a red Prada coat and headband, in photos taken by Erik Madigan Heck.
Although the photos have been dubbed “beautiful”, people have taken issue with the cover’s caption, as it reads, “The Great Spirit of Britain… together we are strong.”
People were quick to take to Twitter to slam the magazine, and remind them that Saoirse is in fact Irish, not British.
I… I… Well, the entire nation is about to go spare again. What the actual… Saoirse is “the Spirit if Great Britain” apparently. pic.twitter.com/BP0MwEgqXa

Britain’s best actress is…
100% Irish, naturally. https://t.co/UD8wH6bL8w

What an insult to Ireland. But of course, that’s what the English do.
