The latest cover of Newsweek has sparked controversy yet again. The covers of the magazine have become infamous over the years. Newsweek has been known for picking provocative covers and stories. When the magazine comes under fire for its cover stories and photos, it responds by saying that it is simply trying to begin conversations.

The latest issue of the magazine has a lead story that discusses the protests going on in the Middle East right now. The article was written by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The cover of the magazine features a headline of “MUSLIM RAGE” and it is just above a picture featuring men who are wide-eyed.


The magazine is sticking with and defending its latest cover. PR Director at Newsweek, Andrew Kirk, released the following statement:

“This week’s Newsweek cover accurately depicts the events of the past week as violent protests have erupted in the Middle East (including Morocco where the cover image was taken).”

The cover has sparked a ton of criticism not just from the media world but also from the public on social media sites all day long. Many people have been posting pictures of Muslims in un-aggressive situations and comments that are tongue-in-cheek and ad-nauseam. For instance, one commenter said that what gets him into Muslim rage is “When the cousins eat up all the goodies during Eid.”
