correction of the month

Now that newspapers are going out of business, seems like proofreaders are the first to go.
An item...incorrectly identified DJ KaatScratch as transgendered. She describes herself musically as "transgenred."
But what typeface is bold enough for a retraction like that?

Make it bigger
Make it smaller
Turn it upside down
Move it all around
Put it back where it was
