Model Andrej Pejic, whose androgynous good looks made him fashion’s new ‘It’ boy has found a place in men’s magazine FHM’s list of the world’s sexiest women.
The model, who sports long blonde hair and a waif-like figure, has been voted into the 98th place on the list.
But the commentary accompanying the entry has raised eyebrows as the magazine announced, "pass the sick bucket", reported New York Times online.
"Designers are hailing him as the next big thing. We think ‘thing’ is quite accurate. The gender bender has jumped the gun in hoping he might one day be signed as a Victoria’s Secret Model. Pass the sick bucket," said the comment box about the 21-year-old.
The outrage caused by these comments sparked FHM to remove the entry from its website. But the entry is still running in the print version of the list which comes with this month’s edition.
"Andrej Pejic appears at number 98 in FHM Magazine’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2011. Regrettably the copy accompanying Andrej’s online entry wasn’t subbed prior to going live. Once we realised, we removed it immediately and apologised for any offence caused," said a spokesperson for the magazine.
