Curvy model Yumi Nu has four words for controversial author Jordan Peterson: “I win, you lose.”
Nu, 25, is the youngest of four 2022 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue cover stars alongside Kim Kardashian, Ciara, and Maye Musk.
Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist, best-selling author of 12 Rules For Life, and woke-bashing thought leader with nearly five million YouTube subscribers who recently came under fire when he harshly critiqued Nu’s SI Swim cover on Twitter.
“Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that,” Peterson tweeted.
When one of many incensed repliers accused Peterson’s language of resembling a “parody,” he doubled down by presenting a pair of scientific studies on attractiveness:
“It’s a conscious progressive attempt to manipulate & retool the notion of beauty, reliant on the idiot philosophy that such preferences are learned & properly changed by those who know better. But don’t let the facts stop you,” he concluded.
Nu brushed Peterson’s comments off in a TikTok, lip-syncing the lyrics to Nicki Minaj’s “Itty Bitty Piggy” in front of a screencap of the controversial tweet:
“I don’t even know why you girls bother at this point,” she mouthed. “Give up. It’s me. I win. You lose.” The clip was viewed nearly 590,000 times in 24 hours.
There are apparently many siding with Nu, as Peterson received so much backlash from his comments that he asked his staff to help keep him off of social media.
“The endless flood of vicious insult is really not something that can be experienced anywhere else. I like to follow the people I know but I think the incentive structure of the platform makes it intrinsically and dangerously insane.”
Though his account his still active, Peterson said he’s no longer behind the keyboard.
“I told my staff to change my password, to keep me from temptation and am departing once again,” he added. “If I have something to say I’ll write an article or make a video. If the issue is not important enough to justify that then perhaps it would be best to just let it go.”
In his final tweet, Peterson promised to write an article on why Twitter is “maddening us all” before signing off with, “bye for now.”
Viewer’s of Nu’s TikTok praised the model and celebrated Peterson’s Twitter hiatus.
“You did win cuz Jordan b. Peterson is leaving Twitter (hopefully) after he got blasted on the thread,” someone wrote.
“Single handedly got Jordan Peterson off Twitter. & looked AMAZING while doing it,” said another. “Queeeen.”
