High-five, Ashlee

Ashlee Simpson criticized fat-shaming media after said media criticized size 2 Jessica Simpson for "easing up on her fitness regimen" and having a "decidedly fuller figure".

Ashlee said:
"Is this something you would say to your wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, or even a friend? I seriously doubt it. How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure? Now we can focus on the things that really matter."
Fuck. Yeah. And yes, current pictures of Jessica Simpson show her as being less gaunt, with full face and bigger tits (as if that was possible... heh). Sure, she may have gained a little weight. So what? Good for her sister for defending her, and defending young girls who are affected by the shaming of a size 2 figure.

Is stars gaining weight a trend? Maybe if enough of them do it, the critics will just seem silly because most stars will weigh that much anyway so why would they be paying attention to a certain star? One can dream...
