Outrage over Duchess Kate's photoshopped decaying teeth on US mag
London, July 8 (ANI): The face of the Duchess of Cambridge has been put on the cover of a U.S. magazine with a set of yellow, decaying teeth.
The Royal was Photoshopped to resemble the American stereotype of a British with bad gnashers for a special issue of the politics and arts publication The New Republic about the future of Britain.
The 30-year-old, who is expected to attend Sunday's Wimbledon tennis final, appears in front of a tattered Union Jack alongside the words, 'Something's Rotten. The Last Days of Britain.'
Inside are several articles about the state of the United Kingdom ahead of London Olympics, which have sparked outrage online.
Last year she had spent thousands of pounds having her teeth polished and turned to give her the perfect smile.
French dentist Didier Fillion used a hidden brace to make Kate's teeth appear a little out of line, un-American and therefore beautifully natural.
"He did some little micro-rotations on Kate," the Daily Mail quoted dentist Bernard Touati as saying.
"That's why they look so good - because they are not perfectly aligned.
"The problem in the United States is they have very artificial vision. But what we like is a natural healthy smile, but not artificial," he said.
Brits having bad teeth is a staple of American humour about the UK. "Not cool. I am not an imperialist (not even close!), but she seems to be a genuine person. She is young, beautiful, and privileged. Apparently grave sins to many people," one commentator said.
"Yet I wonder if these are the same critics who keep up on the Kardashians, or whatever flavour of the month Hollywood squirts out.
"She is a person who did not deserve this low blow. Shame on them. I will wouldn't even think to read anything from them ever again," the commentator said.
One poster said it was 'absolutely ridiculous' and another said, 'the magazine should be sued for libel'.
"What else an one expect from a Republican magazine, they probably dislike themselves. Satire or not, it is still very disrespectful," Lee, from Vancouver, said.
"Cheap shot. They know she will remain dignified and not say a word, allowing them to "get away with it"," another poster said. (ANI)
