Thousands of libraries across the country are currently not circulating the most recent issue of Sports Illustrated with Beyoncè on the cover. Not because they are trying to shield their patrons from her hideous lace-front and “House of Damnitswrong” bikini, but because SI (published by Time Warner, Inc) refused to send the issue to many of its subscribers, primarly schools and public libraries. Their reasoning? They had received many complaints in the past from parents and teachers about the issue and decided to self-censor. They have since realized this huge gaffe and are sending the issue to anyone who wants it. My question is, why after “years of complaints” did they decide to censor this particular issue? And who at Time could’ve possibly thought this was a good idea? The last thing we need are publishers determining what is too “controversial” for our delicate patrons.
