In a recent review of a Norwich band Q Magazine referred to Norwich as "unfashionable".

The review of Let’s Eat Grandma, a duo made up of Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, stated: “It was too much for some to fathom that the teenage duo from unfashionable Norwich might be solely responsible for their own music, that there must be some industry-savvy overlord behind the scenes.”

The description provoked a questioning tweet from one Twitter user to which Q Magazine responded: “We’ve looked into your complaint and I’m afraid we’ve decided to uphold the description of Norwich as unfashionable. Sorry about that.”

Another Twitter user responded to the thread by saying: “They’ve clearly never spent much time in Norwich. We welcome them with open arms. Come visit.”

Another wrote: “It’s funny how so many people judge a lovely city solely based on a fictional character. Just continue to insult some readers for cheap laughs and see how it goes.”
