Marking possibly the first time Maxim has ever been accused of showing too much, the February 2011 cover featuring Olivia Munn is apparently under fire for featuring her in see-through panties that reveal an entirely airbrushed pubic region that might as well be Barbie’s crotch. Hide your kids! FOX411 reports:
“It’s disgusting,” Dan Gainor, Vice President of Business & Culture at the Media Research Center, tells FOX411.“Maxim has moved their magazine from tawdry to full-on pornography.”
With America now privy to Munn’s personal grooming habits, Gainor predicts that retailers will race to put the offending issue under the counter.
“Any store could have children coming in. If I were a parent, and I walked into a store and saw that cover, I would make a scene until the manager hid it,” Gainor said.
Yes, because causing a scene wouldn’t draw your child’s attention immediately to the cover. “Hey, why’s dad freaking out about this magazine? And why can’t I stop staring at this girl’s underwear while feeling like it has the answers to everything? I’m dropping out of school.”
Now look what you did.
