Time magazine is catching hell for its latest cover supposedly giving Hillary Clinton devil horns.

Some hawk-eyed politicos noticed the “M” in TIME carves out little blue triangles above the former secretary of state’s head.

The eye-catching cover comes in the wake of a scandal over Clinton’s use of a personal email address on a private server as a government official.

Time sought to extinguish the flames of the online firestorm on Thursday by pointing out that this has happened to plenty of subjects in the past — given the placement of the “M” — and was in no way intentional.

The magazine’s website published a gallery of 34 other covers that similarly appear to feature devilish horns.

This list includes former U.S. presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, several popes, actor John Travolta, former U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and “Star Wars” villain Darth Vader.

Even Hillary Clinton was given horns at least one other time, on Nov. 16, 2009.

“Any resemblance to cats, bats or devil horns is entirely coincidental,” the website said.

The uproar drew more attention to the magazine’s featured article, “The Clinton Way,” by David Von Drehle.
