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.
