Why is this so hard? A person from Southie is never referred to as “a Southie.” Southie is a place not a person. Seems simple enough but people not from Boston seem to struggle with this.
The New York Time’s did it in an article on celebrity chef and Southie gal Barbara Lynch. Forbes regretted making the mistake in an article about the Showtime Series SMILF. And even a paper in Palo Alto – really mixed things up thinking Dot and Southie were the same place and offered tips on “how to eat like a Southie.”
According to Universal Hub, the Associated Press is making the same mistake in recent article about UFC President and one time Southie guy Dana White.
