I have to admit, the kerfuffle over the new cover of Vogue had me yawning. Yes, it was probably a very poor choice of poses, and obviously slightly offensive. But you know what, I doubt if LeBron hesitated when taking the big check they offered. I try to err on the side of not yelling racism in a crowded room if it's not absolutely necessary.
However, Gawker now gives us a revealing side-by-side look at why it's actually pretty damn offensive (or at best, derivative) after all. Even though Denton referred to him as James LeBron (hire a fact-checker dude!)
I mean, really? A giant black monkey with a German helmet and the words "mad brute"? Paging Al Sharpton...
I'm sure Wintour is so upset about all of the attention this is getting though.
