It’s McCarthyism All Over Again! Mindy Kaling Responds to Elle Magazine Cover Backlash

Screen shot 2014-01-07 at 11.25.49 AMmindy8f-1-webRemember when Melissa McCarthy was featured on the cover of Elle, swaddled in a voluminous grey tent? Because OBVIOUSLY big girls can’t be seen wearing sexy clothes? This week, Elle debuted their Women in TV issue featuring a GORGEOUS Amy Poehler, a FABULOUS Zooey Deschanel, a SUPERSEXY Allison Williams, and, oh yeah, a dreary black & white close-up of Mindy Kaling. Hmmm. Critics slammed the magazine for featuring a close-up of The Mindy Project star rather than a full-body shot, echoing the flame-up over Melissa McCarthy’s cover. Elle stands by its picture, though. In a statement to E! News, the magazine said: “Mindy looks sexy, beautiful and chic. We think it is a striking and sophisticated cover and are thrilled to celebrate her in our Women in TV Issue.” Today, Mindy responded with a tweet, saying she loves it. So… case closed?
