New York Post made a tweet announcing Yumi Nu as the SI Swimsuit cover model. Jordan responded to the tweet saying, “Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.”
Post this tweet, netizens on Twitter felt that this tweet was unacceptable. One user tweeted, “It’s obvious you have never been to an art museum in Europe. Some of the most memorable paintings, I’ve ever seen in my lifetime, were of women that looked just like this. Just because you don’t have any taste for a curvaceous woman doesn’t mean others don’t”
While some disagreed with Jordan, there were some who agreed with him saying she should control her weight considering that she is a swimsuit model.
