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

women we love The Mindy Project Mindy Kaling Elle magazime cover girls Celebrity Twitter women we love The Mindy Project Mindy Kaling Elle magazime cover girls Celebrity Twitter Remember 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?
