At the age of 81, Martha Stewart is the cover model for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. And she looks pretty darn great.

But over on Fox News’s Outnumbered, guest co-host Lisa Boothe went on a rant – in fact, she made it clear she was being a “hater” – denouncing Stewart’s SI cover gig.

Transcript via Media Matters:

LISA BOOTHE: Am I the only hater? I’m going to be a hater. I’m not down with it. Like she’s 81, what are we going to put like 90-year-olds on the cover?

HARRIS FAULKNER: Sure, why not?

BOOTHE: It’s like putting obese people on the cover.

FAULKNER: I know 30-year-olds who don’t look that good.

BOOTHE: I’m not down with it. Look, like I don’t want to give young girls complexes, so I understand that we don’t want to feed unhealthy perceptions among young people. We also don’t need to go nuts with it, right? It’s like telling people that like Lizzo is healthy or something. I’m sorry, you’re not.

FAULKNER: Oh, I wouldn’t compare Martha Stewart —

BOOTHE: Yeah, like there is this whole thing now, and she’s actually attractive, but there’s this whole thing now where we’re told like beauty is someone who’s like objectively not attractive, right? Like, we are just in this like weird — I don’t like the societal stuff that’s going on right now.

GUY BENSON (GUEST): I think it’s tasteful, she looks beautiful.

BOOTHE: Not her specifically, but we’re told, you know, hairy armpits is attractive, like it’s not. You know what I mean? I just want to live in reality, that’s all I want to do.
