CurvieBirdie Watch: Melissa McCarthy

Happy Friday everybody!!  Today, I want to talk about the FABULOUS Melissa McCarthy!  As some of you all know, she is the star in the new movie "Identify Theft."  This CurvieBirdie is so fricken funny; I don't know how anyone cannot love her!  She was also the hilarious lady from Bridesmaids and the show Mike and Molly.

So last week when Identity Theft opened at the box office, the critic Rex Reed made some horrible remarks about Melissa.  In his review, Rex said "McCarthy is a "gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious with equal success."  Also, he called her a tractor-sized, humongous, obese and a female hippo!

Are you kidding me?  He has the nerve to speak on her weight?  Have y'all seen him?

I know there is a lot we can say about this picture, and he is not a small dude either!!  Apparently, Jenny McCarthy and the director of this latest film both have spoken out and it is not good for Rex!!

Bridesmaids director Paul Feig tweeted, "I cordially invite Mr. Rex Reed to go f--- himself."  YES!!  Say that!  It is a shame that someones talent can be down-played and criticized due to their weight.  Size-ism is real people!!  I do commend those that have spoken out about this.

Melissa is a very funny woman, and she is definitely a CurvieBirdie worth supporting!!! 

Do you think Melissa McCarthy is funny?  Have you seen her new movie? Did you love her in Bridesmaids?
