GQ Advertisers Pull Out Of Lindsay Lohan Issue

Lindsay Lohan appears on this month’s sultry cover of GQ. Lohan submitted to a photo shoot and — fittingly — a Blackberry-only interview.

One slight wrinkle: Lohan turns 21 in July, and according to publisher Pete Hunsinger, alcohol advertisers weren’t too keen on appearing in the same issue as an underage cover subject. FHM, you’ll recall, ran into a similar problem when it ran a cover featuring Brooke Hogan, the Hulkster‘s underage daughter.

Advertisers that didn’t have a problem with Lohan’s “minor” status? Grey Goose and Patron.

Ah, tequila.
