SELF magazine has apologized over its offensive write-up about a woman with cancer, but is it too little too late? The San Diego woman was thrilled when SELF asked to use a picture of her in a tutu running in the Los Angeles Marathon. That is, until she saw the article.
"I was just kind of stunned and offended."
"The picture appears in a section of the magazine called 'The BS Meter.' The caption refers to a tutu epidemic and basically makes fun of the girls' outfits." (Via KNSD)
