Elle Magazine’s Mindy Kaling Cover Slammed As Racist, ‘Fat-ist’

@ElleMagazine's @MindyKaling Cover Slammed As Racist, 'Fat-ist'from freep.com: Elle magazine seems to be covered in controversy lately. They wrapped Melissa McCarthy in a capacious coat last year. And now for one of four February fronts, they've hacked Mindy Kaling off at the chest and shot her in black and white — while her fellow funny ladies of TV, Allison Williams, Amy Poehler and Zooey Deschanel, are pictured full-length and in full color. And the Internet has taken notice... "@ELLEmagazine Mindy Kaling cover just plain racist and fat-ist. You do not empower women ELLE, you bring them down." ... [Kaling says] "I love my @ELLEmagazine cover. It made me feel glamorous & cool. And if anyone wants to see more of my body, go on thirteen dates with me."
