Kate Mccann is Lads Mag Loaded Pin-up Girl

Another example of how various media outlets are making money off the back of this tragedy.

Loaded Magazine has come under fire for including Kate McCann, mother of Madeleine McCann, who went missing in Portugal last year, in a list of “unlikely ladies that float our boat.” Editor Martin Daubney defended the piece. “Kate McCann is attractive and I stand by that. Thousands of men would happily agree Mrs McCann is attractive. We were simply vocalising that sentiment.”

LADS mag Loaded
has been accused of bad taste after including distraught Kate McCann on a list of pin-ups.

In the February issue, Kate features alongside female stars under the heading, “Is it just us? Unlikely ladies that float our boat”.

She is pictured clutching daughter Maddie’s cuddly toy in Praia da Luz, Portugal.

Below the picture it reads, “Sensitive one, this, but there’s nothing more erotic to some than a pained woman in need of some good lovin’.”

Others in the category include Sporty Spice Mel C, GMTV weathergirl Clare Nasir, presenter Lorraine Kelly and I’m A Celebrity star Cerys Matthews.

The column is penned by editor Martin Daubney. Defending his comments, he said: “Kate McCann is attractive and I stand by that.

“Thousands of men would happily agree Mrs McCann is attractive. We were simply vocalising that sentiment.”

But last night some readers of the mag said they were “appalled” at the comment.

Simon Wright, 23, from Newcastle, said: “It’s bad taste to use Kate McCann in a magazine in this way.

“I don’t care what the editor says, she shouldn’t be there.”

And Andy McCartney from Wolverhampton, Staffs, said: “They’ve gone too far.”
