Lexi Thompson Controversy : LGPA star topless Golf Digest cover lights up Twitter

Golf Digest stirs controversy with cover featuring Lexi Thompson flaunting ‘side boobs’

Thompson’s cover on the “Fitness and Power Issue” is the latest controversy from the magazine that has featured golfers Michelle Wie in a midriff-bearing tank top and Paulina Gretzky in a sports bra and compression pants.

“This is how @GolfDigest presents women on the cover,” Twitter user @DasGherkin wrote, referring to all three covers.

“I hope @GolfDigest is aware that women don’t actually golf topless? Do they know this? I worry they don’t know this,” another user, @HToneTastic, Tweeted.

Golf Digest’s newest issue shows Thompson – a 20-year-old who began her career at the U.S. Women’s Open eight years ago – shirtless with a white towel covering her breasts. The cover reads, “Lexi and the women who out-drive you.”

Gold Digest nor Thompson have responded to the criticism surrounding the cover, but Thompson Tweeted that she was “So pumped to represent fitness & power #GirlPower.”

    I have no problem with Lexi Thompson’s “side boobs”! I think those folks who protest either do not have the side boobs to show off or are from another planet. Lexi is a beautiful woman and if she has the body, why not flaunt it? She sure looks fit to me!!

    tasteless…..this is golf magazine not Playboy. This is why women are cheapened. Was it necessary really? Sure men love it, but it is tasteless. Why? because woman need to let the world know that is it because of their talent not their breast that they become famous.
