Kardashian-Jenner women face Twitter backlash after 'Cosmo' labels them 'America's First Family'
Cosmopolitan magazine managed to get all six women from the Kardashian-Jenner family on their 50th anniversary cover -- and they're pantsless.
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are joined by mom Kris Jenner and their younger sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner on the November issue of the women's magazine, which have deemed them "America's First Family." Taking a cue from Tom Cruise in Risky Business, the reality stars pose in only white, over-sized dress shirts and their best "I woke up like this" hairstyles.
"Happy 50th Birthday @cosmopolitan So excited to be on the November cover with my family!!!!" Kim, 34, Instagrammed. "Thank you @cosmopolitan for this amazing cover shoot!!!!"
Ryan Seacrest, an executive producer of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, was interviewed for the photo spread and admits that he had no idea how wildly popular the show and its stars would become.
"No one could have predicted the Kardashians' and Jenners' success," he said. "But when you spend time with them, what resonates is the family unit. There are so many things about them that are glamorous, crazy, and unlike our lives, but the sense of family is universal. They love and stand by one another no matter what."
While the sisters and their mother are thrilled to be covering the publication, the label "America's First Family" has sparked some Twitter outrage.
"Memo to @Cosmopolitan: THIS is America's First Family not the Kardashians," one Twitter user posted with an image of President Barack Obama and his family.
"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," another tweet reads.
The headline could be a tongue-in-cheek play at the news of Kanye West's 2020 presidential bid, which his wife Kim asserts is totally "serious." It could also be a reflection of how popular the family has become.
