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.”
