Celebrities Call for ‘People’ Boycott After Trump Cover

People has come under fire for its Donald Trump cover that hit newsstands this week, with several celebrities expressing their outrage and some even calling for a boycott of the weekly magazine.

The newest issue, which came out on Wednesday, features a smiling president-elect in a shiny blue suit and red and white striped tie. The headline reads, “President Trump,” along with the words: “His life, his family and his astonishing journey to the White House.”

In the pinned tweet on People’s Twitter page, the caption exclaims: “He’s hired!”

In October, the magazine itself made headlines after publishing an account from former reporter Natasha Stoynoff, who accused the then-GOP presidential candidate of groping her during a 2005 interview. The high-profile personal essay came on the heels of the Trump-Billy Bush tape and ushered in a slew of other women who spoke out for the first time to accuse Trump of sexual assault and similar treatment.
