Whitney Houston Casket Photo Invokes Outrage
The National Enquirer refuses to let Whitney Houston rest in peace.
The latest issue of this notorious tabloids screams "WHITNEY: THE LAST PHOTO!" and purports to depict a picture of the late singer in her casket.
It was allegedly taken inside Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday and shows a woman wearing a dark dress, with "Nippy" (Houston's nickname), along with two treble clefs, written in blue script on the lining of the casket cover.
The image - we blurred it out above - has invoked outrage across the Internet, with Sarah Anne Hughes of The Washington Post referring to it as "shocking and disturbing."
A similar uproar took place in July 2009 when a British tabloid covered an issue with a photo of a dying Michael Jackson being wheeled out on a stretcher.
