Lea Michele's Controversial Cosmo Cover Banned From Store

In order to get the magazine patrons have to ask for it from their customer services counter because the cover was allegedly said not 'appropriate'.

"" star 's controversial cover for Cosmopolitan has prompted bosses of a store in Texas to ban the magazine from their shelves. Michele sparked outrage after appearing on the March issue of the publication wearing a dress with a plunging neckline.

The shot infuriated many readers and parents, who claim the actress should cover up because her on-screen alter ego, high school student Rachel Berry, is a role model to young viewers. And now the owners of a Brookshires grocery store have removed the magazine from their stands, replacing it with a notice requesting patrons to ask for it from their customer services counter, according to CocoPerez.com.

A customer tells the website she was told the cover "wasn't appropriate" for display. A similar magazine scandal hit Sir last month after his touching family cover shoot, featuring partner David Furnish and new son Zachary, was covered up with a "Family Shield" by a retailer in Arkansas in a bid to "protect" shoppers.
