Yumi Nu's Sports Illustrated cover branded 'not beautiful' by Jordan Peterson after she slams 'angry guys on internet'

SPORTS Illustrated cover girl Yumi Nu has called out "angry guys on the internet" who oppose plus-sized models being included in the fashion industry.

The 25-year-old singer and model's comments came before controversial psychologist Jordan Peterson's assertion that she is "not beautiful."


"Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that," the “12 Rules For Life” author tweeted on Monday alongside a picture of Nu's SI cover.

Peterson's comments prompted plenty of dissenting responses.

One person replied: "Sorry. Not wise. No amount of authoritarian pseudo-babble is gonna change that.

"Professor of Piffle Jordan Peterson is the "stupid people's smart person". Yumi's yummy."

Another added: "Why do men feel it's their duty to publicly pronounce their view on the attractiveness of women? Couldn't you just keep it to yourself?"

Yumi herself addressed backlash about her place in the fashion industry in an essay that accompanied her cover.

She wrote: "Even here in the U.S., where a lot of the fashion industry has become more inclusive toward people with bodies like mine in the last few years, some people — for example, designers at certain high-fashion houses and dumb, angry guys on the internet, among others — just haven't quite figured out yet that people who look like me belong," 

The US Sun has reached out to Sports Illustrated for comment.
