Gross Or Great Idea? Celebrities Weigh In On Time Cover Controversy

Time Magazine's May 21 Issue

Oh, the French are probably laughing at us right now. And they have every reason to chuckle over this too, if you ask me.

The Twitterverse has once again erupted over Time Magazine’s May 21 cover, which features 26-year-old mom Jamie Lynne Grumet breastfeeding her almost 4-year-old son, while asking it’s readers, “Are You Mom Enough?” And it’s not the image of a toddler standing on a chair and breastfeeding that’s disturbing us, it’s the fact that Time has decided to start a shit storm in the mommy wars once again by making some of us feel like inadequate parents if we don’t follow the rules that go along with attachment parenting. Go ahed and raise your hand if you know what I’m talking about.

And of course — and you shouldn’t be surprised over this — there were plenty of celebrities out there who have decided to chime in on the controversy via their Twitter account today. You’d be surprised to read that even pro-breastfeeding supporters such a celebrity moms Mayim Bialik and Alyssa Milano have given the Time cover a shady side-eye look while other celebrities simply think it’s just “gross.” Yep, there was a celebrity that said breastfeeding a 3-year-old toddler is “gross.”

And then there are celebrity moms Lisa Rinna and Josie Maran that have added their two cents about the cover, too. Basically, everyone is talking about it. Check out our slideshow of celebrities tweeting about the cover and tell us, do you think Time’s cover is tacky and tasteless, or well-done and though provoking?
