“You know NOTHING about why this country is great.”
Cosmopolitan magazine revealed the cover to its 50th anniversary issue Sunday night, featuring "America's First Family."
That family? The Kardashians.
Ebony Magazine objected.
We love our First Family. pic.twitter.com/dPFzr4nQQM— EBONY MAGAZINE (@EBONYMag) October 5, 2015
Famed TV talk show host Montel Williams took umbrage with the cover.
Non-celebrities also shared their dismay at the cover.
@Cosmopolitan gross. And NOT America's first family. Just because we can't get away from them, doesn't mean they are our "first family."— Chris Kelleher (@chkelleher) October 5, 2015
One Twitter member "corrected" the cover for Cosmopolitan.
Cosmopolitan editor Joanna Coles has not yet responded to our request for a response to the social media blowback.
UPDATE: A Cosmo representative sent this statement along:
We are teasing! Though who knows, if Kanye runs for president then we may be soothsayers. The Kardashians and Jenners have more digital followers than any other family, more than 350 million and counting. They are a huge cultural phenomenon. What we do know is there is nothing like the cover of a magazine to provoke a national conversation.
