Tour de France cyclist Lance Armstrong is on the cover of the July issue of Outside, but he’s pissed about how the cover photo turned out. Why? Apparently, Outside staffers Photoshopped the text onto Armstrong’s plain blue T-shirt so it reads “38. BFD.” — a reference to his age not being a Big F**king Deal, I guess? Anyway, Armstrong tweeted the following when he saw the magazine:
”Just saw the cover of the new Outside mag w/ yours truly on it. Nice photoshop on a plain t-shirt guys. That’s some lame bulls**t. #weak”
Meh. I mean, I get why he’s a little pissed, I suppose, but I agree with Jezebel’s Dodai on this “controversy” not being a BFD really.
“Lame? Sure. But compared to what’s happened to Faith Hill, Filippa Hamilton, Kelly Clarkson, Angelina Jolie — or anyone who’s had the misfortune to be subjected to a Photoshop Of Horrors — it really isn’t a BFD. Sorry, dude. It’s not exactly an extra testicle. Ladies still get it worse!”
