Mindy Kaling Topless Elle Cover Overlooked

Mindy Kaling Topless Elle Cover Overlooked

There seems to be an epidemic of overzealous political correctness going on at the moment. The latest recipient is Mindy Kaling, whose topless Elle magazine cover was overlooked by those who rushed to defend the comic actress’s honor. Apparently many have jumped into the fray to complain that the curvy performer was not given a full page spread.

The implication seems to be that those “PC” soldiers feel the magazine thought that Miss Kaling was too full figured, aka fat, to grace the cover in a full body shot. The 34-year-old actress and comedienne has been explaining to everyone that she was exhilarated to have been asked to grace the front of Elle magazine.

Mindy also explained that she wished everyone who was rushing to her defense would just back off and shut up, in the nicest way possible. She actually feels insulted at all the folks who, through their “support,” have implied that they think she is fat. Kaling has said that she appreciates the gestures of outrage on her behalf, but, the people attacking Elle were taking away some of the excitement of the photoshoot.

Mindy Kaling said that as far as she was concerned, it was the most glamorous she’d ever looked in a photograph and she was very disappointed that everyone seemed to have overlooked the fact that she had posed topless on the Elle cover. She pointed out that she wore a blazer only, no shirt or bra, just the blazer. Unfortunately, people were so busy being outraged on her behalf about the full body shot not being done that they missed her “daring” photo.

In this instance, Kaling could be the spiritual twin of Lena Dunham, star and creator of the HBO sitcom Girls. Earlier in the week, journalist Tim Molloy from The Wrap asked Lena during a live Q&A session why her character had to be naked at random and, to him, inappropriate times. Other journalists in the session reacted in horror to the innocuous question.

Dunham herself handled the question calmly and replied that if the writer was not “into her” that was fine. But Judd Apatow got angry on Lena’s behalf and accused Molloy of being misogynistic and rude. Girls executive producer Jenni Konner professed herself to be in an incandescent rage over the question.

The implication in that instance was that Dunham, who is not a perfect “10” in the figure department, was being asked the question because she was overweight. The issue seemed to stem from shock jock Howard Stern calling Lena a “little fat chick” who looked like actor Jonah Hill. When the journalist’s entire question was examined, the issue of looks and weight were non-players.

Molloy just wanted an explanation as to why any of the characters had to take their clothes off in what were random and nonsensical moments. Apparently, he also felt the need to be politically correct and question the need for female nudity. Unfortunately, in his effort to stand up for women, he was accused of being a misogynist.

Now Mindy Kaling has been accused of being too fat to have a full body shot on the cover of Elle magazine. Both women have been supported by overzealous politically correct idiots who have managed to insult the two through their efforts. As Kaling so disappointingly pointed out, everyone overlooked the fact that she had posed for a glamorous topless photograph on the cover. All those “supportive” people have failed, however, to diminish her enthusiasm for being put on the front of Elle magazine.

    But Elle magazine DID make the mistake of not keeping a uniform design with all four magazine covers, and that seems unusual. So really, those people who are ‘supporting’ Mindy are actually being observant and rightfully so because Elle magazine drew attention to Mindy’s cover just by making hers different. And that leads to the question, “Why?” And let’s be honest, if Mindy doesn’t have an eating disorder, it’s likely Elle magazine wouldn’t consider her a perfect “10”, but the girls on the other covers (the ones with full body shots) might be. So, yeah, I think it’s pretty reasonable to draw the conclusion that MAYBE Elle magazine didn’t want to be remembered with an unflattering body shot of a full figured woman (and it could have been ANY full figured woman) gracing its covers this month. Are these people “idiots” for suggesting that Mindy’s cover was intentionally different? Or is everyone else “idiots” because they are accepting no answer to the question as the answer to the question? Again, the question being- Why, then, is Mindy’s cover so exceptionally different than the other three when it’s unusual for Elle magazine not to have four covers with a matching theme? Will we ever know or are will we just get a finger wag for asking?

    Both of these women look overweight because they spent eating too much. I understand that the world of fashion prefers slim figured women but I understand this is not realistic. Nevertheless, neither one looks apppealing in photos carrying around the extra pounds. Mindy is cute and I loved her on The Office, but it looks like she eats too much. Lena? No thanks. The tattoos alone look ugly- marking up ones body rarely works for the better, in my opinion.
