Wegmans Covered Up Adele’s Cosmo Cover

The ‘Cosmo’ cover in question.

Jezebel reported yesterday that a Wegmans grocery store in Rochester, New York, had covered Adele’s “surprising” Cosmo cover with plastic wrap so that no part of her body was visible. But before you get riled up about society’s bias against plus-size women in leopard print, you should know that Wegmans actually wraps all Cosmo issues, and has done so for months since receiving complaints from parents about the cover text. So really, the problem is the “sex tips” headline, not Adele’s hips — which don’t look large on this cover at all, in other news.
