When Jessica Simpson posed naked while very pregnant for the cover of Elle magazine's April 2012 issue, she thought she was sharing a beautiful moment with her fans. But, apparently some people aren't liking what they're seeing. A Tuscon Safeway store received "multiple complaints" about Simpson's nude body being on display, a spokesperson for Safeway Inc. told the Arizona Daily Star.  So, the manager of the store placed a cardboard box in front of the questionable part of the magazine cover.

The manager of the store reportedly wrote: "Please Do No Remove Cardboad."

But the story doesn't end there.

A spokesperson for Elle magazine released a statement to Hollywood.com about the issue. “We’ve received an overwhelmingly positive response to Jessica Simpson’s cover," the statement reads. "She’s celebrating her body during this joyous time in her life and we couldn’t be happier for her.”

To see for yourself what's going on at the store, check out the pic that Jezebel.com posted of the cover and the box. Seriously, how do you feel about this cover? Are the customers at that store making a big fuss about nothing?
