FHM Philippines Racist Cover
This was supposed to be the cover of FHM's March 2012 issue. Before releasing the final cover output, Bela Padilla's FHM cover was bombarded with criticisms saying that it is too racist. The cover featured Bela Padilla with dark-skinned women behind and beside her, with the caption saying "Bela Padilla Stepping Out of the Shadows". Bela and FHM publicly apologized for the negative impression the cover conveyed to the public. In the end, the magazine company cancelled the release and decided to change cover and featured celebrity.
