covergirl controversy

View image on Twitter

If you don't live under a rock, then you've heard that the NFL is going through a bit of a PR crisis. Domestic violence. Child abuse. Concussions. Steroids. It's not a pretty time for America's favorite sport, and many brands are withdrawing sponsorship accordingly - but one brand that's decided to stand their ground is CoverGirl. And the Internet is pissed.

The above image, photoshopped from a CoverGirl banner ad by a Twitter user, is one of many that have surfaced in response to CoverGirl going forward with their "Get Your Game Face On" campaign in light of the NFL's perceived indifference to domestic violence. Yet another *gulp* black eye, for a league that could use an image makeover.
