London, Apr. 03: A German magazine has reportedly published a picture of legend Michael Schumacher smiling with his wife Corinna above the headline ‘Awake’, which has enraged the Formula One fans.
Die Aktuelle has been reportedly accused of using ‘tasteless deceit’ to make money on the Formula One ace, who remains in a medically induced coma.
However, fans who rushed in to buy the German publication were left enraged as the article was full of stories of people who had recovered from coma, with no reference to suggest that Schumacher is now ‘awake’, Metro.co.uk reports.
The outrage of the fans could be seen on Twitter as tweets reportedly targeted the German magazine saying that it is ‘shoddy, sensationalist and downright insulting’ and a ‘blatant attempt to sell more copies’.
Media ethics expert Christian Schicha reportedly accused the magazine of ‘making money out of a sick man’.
Doctors are still trying to revive Schumacher from his induced coma, three months after a skiing accident in the French resort of Meribel, the report added. (ANI)
