Gmail: unable to see the report spam option?

I ran across this today while marking several “air conditioners will be extinct!” and invitations from Ashley Madison emails spam. The report spam option was just not showing in a gmail window on my computer.

This was a new one on me. I could see the option on other emails but not this particular batch of junkmail. Email appeared in the gmail app, not visible on screen

Looks like spammers have discovered they can break the Gmail window formatting by including an absurdly wide image which pushes the menu report spam and all the other options are way to the right.

Solution is pretty simple, if it’s not showing scroll to the right. Today’s the first time I have noticed it breaking past the rightmost bounds however, figured I’d share.
