The internet was ablaze yesterday when everyone heard that the National Enquirer planned to publish a photo of a deceased Whitney Houston on the cover of their magazine. But the National Enquirer stands by their decision to publish the photos and called the photos ‘beautiful.’
â€œI thought it was beautiful,â€ publisher Mary Beth Wright told FoxNews.com.
Fellow members of the media attacked the publication’s decision as tasteless and morbid.
The Washington Post declared that â€œa line had been crossed.â€ The website Jezebel called it morbid and the site The Daily Caller added: “Running an image of Whitney Houstonâ€™s lifeless body on the cover is pretty par for the course for The National Enquirer, but itâ€™s still a bit much.”
The photo shows the late singer dead in a gold casket with the headline, â€œWhitney: The Last Photo!â€ The image is believed to have been taken inside the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey. Accompanying headlines lure readers in with the promise to bring them inside Whitneyâ€™s private funeral, offering details that she was buried in $500,000 of jewelry with gold slippers on her feet.
The publication will not disclose how they got the photo.
