Sports Illustrated revealed that 24-year-old model Hannah Davis has been chosen to be on the cover of their latest swimsuit issue, but after the announcement, some people called out the photo for being inappropriate.
In the photo, Davis is posing at a farm in Tennessee, and when the announcement was made, Davis herself was reportedly as surprised as anyone.
“I told my mom there was no way I'd get the cover,” Davis revealed. “I told her, 'They do beaches for covers and I'm on a farm. There's no way. It's not possible.'”
After the cover was revealed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, some people took to Twitter to discuss Davis’ bikini bottom.
“hannah davis looks fab in the sports illustrated cover but her bikini bottom is a bit too low,” Twitter user @raihannb wrote. “almost can see too much.”
“Will we all be desensitized when SI debuts a swimsuit issue with a bottomless model?” Lynette Rice also tweeted. “Seems like we're gettin [sic] there.”
Davis, best known as 40-year-old Derek Jeter’s girlfriend, previously appeared in Sports Illustrated’s 2013 swimsuit issue.
