Philly Mag Offers Fix To Controversial Cover Photo



By: Fritz Algard

Philadelphia Magazine recently came under fire after releasing a questionable photo for the online version of this month’s cover story about how to choose a school for your child.  Tom McGrath, Philly Mag editor, released a statement shortly after apologizing for the lack of diversity that was represented in the image.

“I apologize for my failings in judgment and for our insensitivity”, said Tom McGrath. “It was a stupid, insensitive decision that I deeply regret,” he added.

Shortly after, the publication uploaded a new image in an attempt to rectify the previous cover photo.  It’s unclear whether the new cover photo will lessen the controversy or add to it.  See below and decide for yourself:
