Jackie Chamoun controversy

It’s funny how some stories capture the imagination. Jackie Chamoun, the Olympic skier who posed for a racy calendar three years ago, seems to be one of them. I spent some time hanging out with the activists who started the #stripforjackie campaign, which caused my timeline to clog up with half naked, mostly hairy Lebanese men.

Here are a few pieces I did on the affair.
