Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Reveals First Model To Wear Hijab, Burkini


Halima Aden made history as the first Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model to wear a hijab and burkini.

“Being featured in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue will have such a great impact on women and young girls who have never seen someone who looks like them represented in the public eye,” the Somali-American model told Fox News in a written statement. “SI Swimsuit has been at the forefront of changing the narrative and conversation on social issues and preconceived notions. I’m hoping this specific feature will open doors up for my Somali community, Muslim community, refugee community and any other community that can relate to being different.”

The hijab and burkini have officially made their debut in the pages of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit.

In a series of social media posts Monday, the magazine unveiled some of its new swimsuit models, including 21-year-old Somali-American model and activist Halima Aden, whom the publication is touting for “making history” by being the first to ever wear the Islamic garb for SI Swimsuit.

The magazine posted a photograph of Halima on Monday wearing an electric blue burkini, which fully covers her arms and legs, as well as a multi-colored hijab covering her hair — garb designed to conceal women’s bodies in alignment with Islamic moral codes.

“Halima Aden makes history as the first model to wear a hijab and burkini for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit,” the publication tweeted Monday. More

Really, political correctness in the SI swimsuit issue? Another good old American tradition going down the drain to the PC culture. Men don’t buy that issue to see a model wearing a bathing suit that covers more skin than my grandma’s swimsuit did. Just saying.

If we wanted to respect the Muslim culture, why would we take pictures of Muslim women that would most likely get them stoned to death in their own country?
