SI Swimsuit model Yumi Nu shamed as ‘not beautiful’ — fans fight back

Published:

A controversial clinical psychologist and YouTuber has some thoughts on model Yumi Nu’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover.

Dr. Jordan Peterson quote-tweeted The Post’s story on the plus-size model’s cover debut Monday, writing, “Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance goes to vary that.”

“’Authoritarian’? Chunky women on magazine covers? You sound like a parody of you,” one Twitter user — of many — challenged the best-selling creator.

“It’s a conscious progressive attempt to control & retool the notion of beauty, reliant on the idiot philosophy that such preferences are learned & properly modified by those that know higher,” Peterson responded, with two links to scientific studies on attractiveness.

“But don’t let the facts stop you,” he finished.

The Canadian best-selling creator of “12 Rules For Life” is understood to his nearly 5 million YouTube subscribers as a conservative mental who shared his views on cultural and political issues.

The Post has reached out to Peterson’s attorney for comment.

Social media commenters strongly reacted to his comments, with some telling the mental to read up on the history of beauty standards.

“Standards of beauty change over time. Plus you posted two studies that don’t substantiate your point,” one user wrote.

“He’s all the time been a parody of an ‘mental’ psychologist, dummies,” one other said.

“These authoritarians are forcing us to just accept people as they’re… What a hellscape,” one other user commented.

Still, some appeared to agree with not less than a few of Peterson’s criticism by honing in on Nu’s plus-size physique.

“Lets be honest. She is gorgeous. Heavy set.. but still beautiful,” one other chimed in.

“On the true bros… if she dropped the additional kilos, she’d be a ten,” one said.

“She is gorgeous, but I’d prefer being in just a little bit higher shape, especially being on a canopy of a magazine in a swimsuit. But little question beautiful & decent proportions,” one other wrote.

Twitch streamer HasanAbi responded with a less-than-flattering picture of Peterson alongside the psychologist’s caption. Users blasted him for the photo, nevertheless, saying it was taken at a low point in Peterson’s life.

Nu, a curvy Asian model, told The Post that she thought she was walking right into a weekly meeting along with her agent when a camera crew surprised her with the quilt.

“I couldn’t speak. I had full-body chills. I used to be shaking, I used to be crying. They really got me good,” said Nu.

“It’s amazing. I’m on cloud nine. That is nothing I could prepare for. It’s unexpected,” she continued. “I feel like we’re in a spot at once where persons are making space for more diversity on magazine covers. It’s an enormous time for Asian American people in media. I do know I play an enormous role in representation in body diversity and race diversity, and I really like to be a task model and representative of the plus-size Asian community.”
