A popular Tamil magazine, Kumudam Reporter, received a backlash on various social media platforms. Why?

In the latest issue, the magazine cover story was  “Leggings are vulgar: Today’s youth are exceeding limits” with close-up photographs of the backs of women wearing leggings.

Not only that, the story blamed women for wearing obscene clothes and said men stare at them because they wear skin tight clothes (like leggings).

Outraged by the sexist attitude, Netizens slammed the magazine and asked it to apologize for its ‘horrendous’ editorial decision.






Also, the magazine was criticized for photographing women backs without their permission.


The magazine should apologize for its cover story and pictures. This is clearly not journalism!
