    beyonce too black and too Ghetto for sports Illustrated readers

    "Outraged Sports Illustrated readers are flooding the SI offices with angry phone calls and emails demanding subscription cancellations. The furor erupted after Sports Illustrated's celebrated annual "Swimsuit Issue" hit the stands with Beyonce on the cover and an inside shot of a smug Kanye West gripping a models derriere.

    Angry comments have been posted on this site as well as other blogs and message boards. "Is this the Swimsuit Issue or the Ghetto issue?" read one post. A source inside the SI mail room emailed me to say longtime subscribers are angry. "The calls are nonstop," she wrote. "Some of these guys have been subscribing to Sports Illustrated for years just so they can get the Swimsuit Issue before it hits the stands. This is like blasphemy to most of them who don't know who Beyonce or Kanye are."

    A local newspaper reporter who asked not to be identified said, "So many women grew up identifying with the models in the Swimsuit Issue. They don't see themselves in Beyonce. SI has made a mockery of their core demographic with this issue."

    So far, SI hasn't commented publicly on the complaints. But insiders say SI is discreetly emailing members of the mainstream media emphasizing the point that the Swimsuit Issue is a "Music Issue". But critics are asking how can it be both? "They should make up their minds," wrote one angry poster on a sports-related board. "Either it's the Swimsuit Issue or the Rap Issue. SI can cancel my subscription!"

    There are always going to be ignorant people in every society.
    For someone to argue that Beyonce is "too ghetto" for the
    cover of Sports Illustrated is hypocritical when her reputation
    is compared with that of many of the athletes featured each
    week.

    Bet it either is a hoax or the complaints are on Kanye, not Beyonce.
    Why would they love Tyra and not like Beyonce?



    The only thing I can think many dumb asses might complain is that usually SI has Black and White and other models all together. So the ones that don't appreciate say Tyra's beauty still have other models. Here they wouldn't.

    They have been seeing Black girl models in SI for a while. So I highly doubt that offended them. But anyone against miscegenation doesn't want to see interracial pictures (But they sure love the results of that mixing!!)

    guess B hasn't crossed over like Papa Knowles thought

    a blond weave is still that a blonde weave....

    hmmm so SI core demographic is white so they prefer to see a white girl on the cover

    so how come Tyra's cover was so celebrated generally ...to me everyone loved her cover and she's a black girl too

    hmmmthis may jus be an internet rumor we'll see how it turns out
