You might have thought the Obamas were America’s First Family. But you’re wrong. There’s a new ruling family, according to Cosmopolitan, and their last name is Kardashian.

The ladies Kardashian/Jenner are gracing the cover of Cosmo’s 50th birthday issue this November, and they took to Twitter (and all other social media, obviously) on Monday to share a preview.

While it’s a perfectly lovely photo of Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kris, Kylie and Kendall, the term “First Family” is one solely applied to the President of the United States and his family.  EBONY, for its part, was not going to accept this apparent slight at the actual First Family, the Obamas. They tweeted the following from their account to show where they stand:

Shots. Fired. Your move, Cosmopolitan. But really, isn’t the biggest injustice is here that they didn’t spell it Kosmopolitan for this particular issue?
