National Enquirer Publisher Calls Houston’s Death Photo “Beautiful”

Although it’s received a massive amount of criticism for publishing a photo of the late Whitney Houston on their cover, The National Enquirer is standing by it’s decision. In fact the publisher, Mary Beth Wright tells Fox News that she “thought it was beautiful.”

The magazine’s decision to publish the picture of Whitney Houston in her coffin with the headline:  “WHITNEY: THE LAST PHOTO!” has been called tasteless by fellow journalist, and has been met with anger and disgust by Houston’s fans.

Whitney was found dead in her Beverly Hilton hotel room less than two weeks ago and was laid to rest last Saturday.

There are reports that a lethal combination of alcohol and prescription drugs led to the singer’s death, but despite a competed autopsy, the coroner’s office is awaiting the official toxicology results before making any further comment.
