Paige Spiranac, Britt McHenry Feud Over SI Swimsuit Issue

They disagree on the issue.

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is here. Earlier today the company revealed its cover, featuring Danielle Herrington.

Herrington emerged as a rookie last year, and made the leap to the cover in just her second year with the SI swimsuit family. Several athletes were also featured in the new swimsuit issue.

Golfer and Instagram sensation Paige Spiranac revealed she was a part of the team. Last week, Spiranac took to Twitter to finally reveal the "secret."

Not everyone agrees on the SI swimsuit issue, though. Some are against the issue's sexual nature, while others view the issue as an empowerment tool for women.

On Tuesday morning Spiranac defended her appearance in the SI swimsuit issue against a former ESPN personality. Britt McHenry took to Twitter to ask why women "need to pose nude" in order to feel "empowered."

"Different women feel empowered in different ways and it’s not right to tell someone what they can and cannot do," Spiranac responded. McHenry agreed that Spiranac can "do what [she] wants" with her body, despite disagreeing with the method of ascertaining empowerment.

That's when Spiranac dropped the mic. She responded with a picture of herself posing nude, the impetus for the argument in the first place.

Good for her. You can view the rest of the SI swimsuit issue on
