    The Mexican edition of Playboy magazine has stirred up some mayjah controversy by putting a nude model resembling the Virgin Mary on the cover.

    The mag hit newsstands on December 1, just days before the Mexican's pilgrimage to the Mexico City shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe.

    On the cover, the Virgin Mary lookalike is seen wearing nothing more than a white cloth over her head and breasts, standing in front of a stained glass window, and with the cover line "We Love You, Maria" in Spanish.

    The Virgin of Guadalupe and the annual pilgrimage to her shrine is one of the world's largest religious activities. The cover has since caused outrage and prompted Playboy's U.S. headquarters to apologize.

    In a statement released by Chicago-based Playboy Enterprises Inc, the top heads said the Mexican edition of the magazine is published by a licensee. Therefore they did not approve or endorse the cover.

    They say, "While Playboy Mexico never meant for the cover or images to offend anyone, we recognize that it has created offense, and we as well as Playboy Mexico offer our sincerest apologies."

    Playboy Mexico's publisher, Raul Sayrols, said "The image is not and never was intended to portray the Virgin of Guadalupe or any other religious figure. The intent was to reflect a Renaissance-like mood on the cover."
