Photo: The L.A. Times' Awkward Ad On Top Of LAX Shooting Story

Today's unfortunate sticker placement news comes to us from the Los Angeles Times, who decided to place an awkward ad across the headline about yesterday's LAX shooting.

Flickr user Gamma Infinity picked up on the error and scanned it for our viewing pleasure with the caption, "Some nutcase shot up LAX -- BUT DON'T TELL ANYBODY!"

It goes without saying that the Times should probably be more mindful when it comes to this sort of thing.
