JCPenney has very strict guidelines regarding advertising from running in any politically or religiously driven magazines or publications. At the time our ad was accepted and approved a different cover was approved for the magazine, however, with the political controversy US Weekly changed their cover and it was too late for us to withdraw.

We never want to cause our customer’s concern and apologize for the inconvenience. We appreciate your comments and feedback.

Thank you for you email.
