Fashion magazine Vogue has attracted criticism for an article published online last week discussing …God, I shudder to think…
… the rise of the big booty.*nonplussed face*
In the article written by Patricia Garcia and entitled "We're Officially in the Era of the Big Booty" the magazine argues that a large derriere has become ubiquitous. Garcia uses examples including Jennifer Lopez, Iggy Azalea, Rose McGowan and Kim Kardashian to demonstrate the popularity of big behinds.And just why is that controversial? Well, because they are all white.
No, I can’t quite figure that out either, but it somehow offends ‘diversity’.
The feature immediately sparked criticism for supposedly being out of touch with popular culture and ignoring cultural diversity by focusing predominately on white celebrities. Critics argue that the feature ignores the history of larger bottoms and focuses on the trend as it has emerged in recent years on white woman.Oh, I see now. Allow me to translate: “Boo hoo!” No-one cared when black people loved fat bottoms, now white people are into it and it’s JUST …. NOT….FAAAAAAAIIIIIR!”
