E! Deletes Insulting Ellen Page Article After Coming Out Speech



Last night during her coming out speech at an LGBTQ youth conference in Las Vegas, Ellen Page talked about the crushing weight of Hollywood beauty standards. She mentioned specifically an article about her on E!'s web site, which was "mysteriously" pulled offline afterward.

"I try not to read gossip as a rule," Page said. "But the other day a web site ran a picture of me wearing sweatpants on the way to the gym. And the writer asked 'why does this petite beauty insist on dressing like a massive man?'" As Kia Makarechi of the Huffington Post pointed out on Twitter today, that line comes verbatim from a January 8 article on Eonline.com in which the writer says he's "starting to wonder if the former Juno star is actually homeless." He also noticed that the article is no longer online.
