A spokesperson for FHM said: “Andrej Pejic appears at number 98 in FHM Magazine’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2011.
“Regrettably the copy accompanying Andrej’s online entry wasn’t subbed prior to going live. Once we realized, we removed it immediately and apologized for any offense caused.
“FHM has spoken to the individual concerned and taken steps to ensure this can never happen again.” Read below the screen shot snatched from their website..Ouch!
Andrej Pejic being placed in the 98th position by FMH Men’s Magazine was nothing more than a shady stab at the model gender bending, female portrayal and an opportunity to ridicule the fashion industry.
FMH made it quite clear they are not forward thinking nor are they willing to follow gender-bending, female portrayals based on the snippet. Andrej was excited when he told New York Magazine about it at a book party last week. Until Pejic realized what happened…..and what was said by FHM.
