In order to please many upset individuals who took umbrage to it, Vogue Magazine has decided to pull the latest cover from its 125th edition. The cover, which features Academy Award-winning Actress Jennifer Lawrence posing in a red dress with the Statue of Liberty in the background with the "offending" subtitle - American Beauty: Jennifer Lawrence on love, liberty and the freedom to be herself, provoked outrage from many people who were upset that a white woman was posing for the cover.

One commentator going by the name Blaque Kween, writing in the comments section of the Magazine's website had this to say about the cover:

"It's such a shame that in this day and age a white woman is still considered the standard of beauty in this country."

Another commentator going by the name Ebony Deity had this to say:

"I very much agree with you Blaque Kween. How the hell can a plain, bland, white woman represent me? It just goes to show that despite all the progress that we have made as a country there is still a very long way to go."

Contacted to get some more feedback on this latest development, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, Dame Anna Wintour had this to say concerning the controversy:

"Look, I am so sorry that many people were offended about Jennifer Lawrence being on the cover and rightly so given America's changing demographics. It may very well be that in the next twenty-five years or so women like Jennifer Lawrence may be a rare sight. I sincerely apologize to all the women of color who I have wronged. Maybe we should have put more thought into it and consider deeply who we should have used as the cover model to represent American Beauty."

She concluded:

"But to tell you the truth, it's going to be extremely difficult finding a gay, transgender, biracial, illegal immigrant to grace the cover."

People win award's for all sorts of things. Not relevant right now, but good information to have, I feel. The thing about commenting when I feel like this... is that theres nothing really to say.
