Months before her private jet incident, Karol G expressed her distaste for GQ Magazine Mexico over a ruined cover shoot. She slammed the publication in a heated rant, calling them out for failing to address her concerns about the edited pictures.

"I don’t even know where to start this message… Today my GQ magazine cover was made public, a cover with an image that DOES NOT represent me,” she claimed. “My face does not look like this, my body does not look like that, and I feel very happy and comfortable with how I look naturally."

Karol G concluded her message: “I understand the repercussions this can have, but beyond feeling it’s disrespectful to me, it’s to the women that we wake up every day looking to feel comfortable with ourselves despite society’s stereotypes.”
