Jessica Simpson Claps Back After Being 'Body Shamed' by Former Vogue Editor: It's 'Nauseating' https://t.co/DBs595sPBs— People (@people) May 6, 2020
Jessica Simpson is firing back at the comments made by former Vogue digital creative director Sally Singer.
Since the Met Gala was cancelled this year, many celebs, designers, models, and others from Vogue shared memories from the event. The article was published on Monday on Vouge.com.
In the article, Singer recalled an anecdote about Simpson at the 2007 Met Gala. Singer said that Simpson appeared to "fall out of" her Roberto Cavalli gown and that Jessica and now ex John Mayer “put on a show during dinner.”
Singer’s comments in the article:
"At dinner it was suddenly like, whoa, Jessica Simpson’s breasts are across from me at the dinner table and they are on a platter and I’m looking at them.”
Singer went on to say that she saw John Mayer “putting his hands on them at the dinner table.” Singer said that she thought: ‘Oh, celebrities, feel free to play here. That’s what’s going on’."
Jessica called out Singer on her Instagram on Tuesday. Jessica said that Singer’s story is inaccurate and that Singer’s body shaming was “nauseating.”
“Feeling a little like Jayne Mansfield after reading this (inaccurate!) oral history of the #MetBall where I am body shamed by #SallySinger. But in all seriousness I have persevered through shaming my own body and internalizing the world’s opinions about it for my entire adult life. To read this much anticipated article about the classiest fashion event there is and have to be shamed by another woman for having boobs in 2020 is nauseating."
