SELF magazine asked runner Monika Allen for permission to run a photo of her wearing a tutu in the LA marathon. Thinking everything would be fine, she agreed to let them use her image...but boy was she surprised. The magazine used the photo to make fun of women who dress up in tutus for runs.

To some this may seem like no big deal, however, Monika's company makes and sells the tutus and donates the money to charity and she was wearing the Wonder Woman shirt and matching tutu because SHE HAS CANCER. Monika has brain cancer and was undergoing chemo.


Self magazine's editor-in-chief, Lucy Danziger, issued this apology:
