Glee star Lea Michele’s controversial cover for Cosmopolitan has prompted bosses of a store in Texas to ban the magazine from their shelves.
Michele sparked outrage after appearing on the March issue of the publication wearing a dress with a plunging neckline.

The shot infuriated many readers and parents, who claim the actress should cover up because her on-screen alter ego, high school student Rachel Berry, is a role model to young viewers.

And now the owners of a Brookshires grocery store have removed the magazine from their stands, replacing it with a notice requesting patrons to ask for it from their customer services counter, according to CocoPerez.com.

A customer tells the website she was told the cover “wasn’t appropriate” for display.

A similar magazine scandal hit Sir Elton John last month after his touching family cover shoot, featuring partner David Furnish and new son Zachary, was covered up with a “Family Shield” by a retailer in Arkansas in a bid to “protect” shoppers.
