This is just plain mean...

From the NY Post.

Like all of us don't already have body image problems.... So Jessica Simpson gained a couple lbs, haven't we all. While I might not be her biggest fan, I feel sorry for her and that unfortunate outfit. Leave her alone.

ugh. why does the media pull this shit?!
Young girls need role models that aren't afraid to have curves.
I miss the days of Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren!

It is. Ugh. In fact Ashlee just made a statement about how disgusted she was about it.

People need to get over themselves and look at their OWN mirror. She's gorgeous no matter what!

Candice said...

I totally agree..it's so sad. Why does the media feel the need to do crap like that? They are just trying to tear her down. I don't understand it.

Sweet Simplicity said...

Agreed! Poor girl!

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Wow, I can't believe the NY Post is headlining this too. I feel sorry for her.

That is terrible!! I might have expected this from a trashy gossip paper, but not the NYP.

NO matter how thick skinned one may be, this still has to hurt. Poor Jess!

That really is awful. She looks like an average person. What is wrong with us that people will beat up on someone like that?

That is a mean cartoon. I do agree that is wasn't the right outfit but the media can be kinda harsh.

This is a horrible cartoon for them to put in the newspaper. I think it is awful that people get paid to make fun of other people by drawing things like this! As far as Jessica Simpson is concerned.. yes I do think that outfit was not the most flattering on her body, but she is still very beautiful and a very talented singer. I feel sorry for her that this got published.

Straight from the headlines of E! News (and their award winning journalism) - Jessica Simpson said there is nothing wrong with a size 8 woman. And someone quoted that Tony Romo likes a real woman with curves who will eat chicken wings and drink beers with him. I hope that is the case. I am - or at least used to be - a fan of hers. I hope they leave her alone.

Those photos are being plastered every where. I still believe they were doctored. I think she's gorgeous no matter what. :)

I was listening to the radio this morning and they were slamming Jessica. Like you said, she's not my favorite person, but she hasn't done anything wrong. Its sad that the public tears her apart for a few pounds...I'd give anything to look the way she does, even with the "extra" pounds...

You won't believe this. My husband met her on a plane from Dallas to North Carolina last night. He got a pic and I posted it on my blog. I think she looks fantastic!
This cartoon is just mean.
