On Sunday night, Cosmopolitan magazine revealed their November issue with the title “America’s First Family.” The issue with that is the only First Family Americans know is the Obama’s and to our surprise the POTUS and his family was not on the cover.
According to Cosmopolitan, the Kardashian and Jenner klan is the new “First Family”. The family was pictured in all white as they posed for what could be a family portrait.
Yes, some people may love the Kardashian’s and stans tune in every week to watch their show, but many people were extremely upset over this cover.

Social media was quick to respond to Cosmo about their choice of words for the cover.
This is also why your editorial staff cannot be full of white girls. Or that one Black person who is afraid of losing her job. — Awesomely Luvvie (@Luvvie) October 5, 2015
Then we had some user who added a little sense of humor to it.
The levels of disrespect from this magazine is unacceptable. Comparing the Kardashian’s to the Obama’s is like comparing a fast food joint to a high end restaurant. It’s sad to see that many Americans glamorize people who’ve done pretty much nothing to get fame and we don’t appreciate those who actually worked hard throughout their life and helped others. Cosmo needs to reconsider the title of this cover story.
The good people over at Served Fresh street wear brand took it upon themselves to alter the latest issue with the real First Family. The magazine has yet to make a statement on this issue, but with the outrage on social media we should be hearing from them soon.
