Michelle Obama Controversy
FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, faced is interposed on a Spanish magazine, Magazine de Fuera de Serie on a portrait done by French painter Marie-Guillemine Benoist in the early 1800's. The famed portrait was of a former slave done after the abolition of slavery. The portrait has been helmed by some as a representation of the emancipation of slavery at the time. The magazine maintains it is paying homage to a FLOTUS being a strong woman who stands by her husband. They refer to her as the "gran mujer" (great woman). Some, however, are saying that it is disrespectful, racist, and is too provacative.
