Vice's Last Words

I never thought I'd see the day when Vice Magazine has taken something too far.  Thanks to their latest fashion editorial Last Words, they finally did it.  Created for the publications 2013 Fiction Issue, the spread shows models re-enacting the suicides of women writers.  Since the spread has gone public, there has been a ton of backlash for the magazine known for taking it too far... for well..taking it too far.  Words like tasteless, sick, disrespectful,  and other scathing remarks dominate the web in reference to the "art". As of 24 hours ago the images have been removed from the publications site and an apology in its place.

I'm torn, in a way I can see the backlash reasoning, but at the same time...I'm intrigued by the images.
