Malina Weissman - Incorrent Mini Bio

  • Solved
I was looking at the Most Popular Celebrities list and I starting going through Malina Weissman's profile (A Series of Unfortunate Events). I started reading her mini biography and I noticed that at the end it says "She has been married to Shelley Emerson since November 16, 2015). I am 100% sure this is incorrect. Malina is only 13 and I'm pretty sure she isn't married. It would be nice if IMDB could please fix this. I think Malina deserves a proper biography. Here's images below of the error.
Thanks.

I just noticed this too a few minutes ago. I was shocked because that certainly can't be right due to her age.

Strange we all just noticed this a few minutes ago, I thought she looked like the young Kara on super girl so I looked it up. She can't be married she's only 13. A lot of people will think it's true because it's on the internet.

I removed that info from her "marriage details" via a edit submission (could take days to remove though because submissions are delayed for those with very high starmeter and her starmeter this week is at #2), this usually happens when IMDb cannot verify a submission because there was no age listed on the profile of the name page the change was made in, if her birth date was there, then the IMDb staff member who allowed it would have known it to be false. Anyways lets hope who ever added it is blocked.

Thanks for highlighting this Frankie, this is an error on our part and should never have gone live on the page. We've taken internal steps to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Thanks for submitting the delete vhavnal, it is much appreciated.

Good.
I think you should "take internal steps to ensure"
that the following does not happen again either
(take a close look at the screenshot here):
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/someone-is-pirating-our-movie-at-imdb-i-need-help

Such examples tell me that there's something wrong with the approval process.

What's the problem?  With limited staff and the drive for rapid updating,
are troll submissions slipping through more easily than they should?
These kinds of things should almost never happen.

Thanks Nobody, unfortunately mistakes do happen. Given the quantity of submissions processed on IMDb on a daily basis we try our best to catch all occurrences of sabotage from users but unfortunately some things do slip through the net. We have taken further action internally to refine our processes to help us catch cases such as these but we agree that these two cases should have been avoided.
