The biggest controversy surrounding this year’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition isn’t about who’s gracing the highly coveted cover, which was unveiled on Thursday (Feb. 13) … it’s about the plastic featured inside the issue.
When the magazine decided to make Barbie the focus of a spread inside the issue, it sparked outrage in many. Parents were scandalized that SI was sexualizing a children’s toy while readers were disgusted that a magazine that usually celebrates strong, healthy women would advertise an unattainable body shape.
On Friday (Feb. 14), the hosts of “Good Morning America” debated whether or not Sports Illustrated made a mistake in featuring Barbie in the swimsuit issue. Do you agree that the doll should have been kept out of the magazine?
