"Insulting" Wimbledon poster provokes untold fury on Twitter

With Wimbledon 2023 underway, the official Twitter account shared an illustration of 15 players descending a staircase at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

But the image was promptly torn apart in the comments, both because of who was and wasn't included in the artwork and because of where some of the players are located. Even two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has an opinion (suffice it to say, this isn't one we'll be including in our favourite poster designs).
