'Cosmopolitan' calls the Kardashians 'America's First Family,' Black Twitter ain't having it
Cosmopolitan labeled the Kardashian-Jenner women as "America's First Family" on their November issue, and the internet is not pleased.
Cosmopolitan labeled the Kardashian-Jenner women as “America’s First Family” on their November issue, and the internet is not pleased.
Twitter was quick to inform Cosmo that reality TV stars are NOT America’s First Family — the Obamas are.
The cover, featuring Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian with Kris, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, all wearing white shirts, lead many to question just what Cosmo was thinking when the editorial decision to call them the First Family was made.
As the magazine celebrates its 50th year, this is probably not the right time for rookie mistakes.

How many women of color do you have on staff, @Cosmopolitan? Is that why you thought just anyone could be named the First Family? Pitiful.

P.S. I choose to believe that THIS is America's First Family not what's on your cover, Cosmopolitan. L #VentOver pic.twitter.com/womJ6hVCbi
