Seventeen Magazine (rightfully) gets heat for its June/July '10 cover and headline:

'THE PARTY DRUG THAT CAN MAKE YOU FAT & UGLY'

I'm just wondering why this was even a story in Seventeen Magazine?! First of all, it's targeting a young crowd re: party drugs and discussing them as if they aren't a big deal (girls start reading Seventeen waaaay younger than 17), and second, 'fat and ugly'??!! It's embarrassingly insulting for them to have published that and only adds to the pressures these poor girls face from every direction and every media source.

Sorry, Seventeen... This was a #FAIL...
