What the Hell, Elle?! Mindy Kaling..What Happened to Her Cover

Well, Elle Magazine has done it again. First, Gabourey, then Melissa, now Mindy.  What is their problem with properly honoring the women who are above a size 4?


 So, I get that they were trying to do a good thing..so they say, but it did not pan out for them...again.

Let me back up, so for the month of February, Elle Magazine chose to highlight four of television's hottest female stars, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler, Allison Williams and Zooey Deschanel in four separate covers, which is great. 

But, what Jezebel Magazine pointed out, as well as msn, was that out of the four women, three who are white and hovering around size 0s, got the 3/4 pose shot, where as Mindy, the only woman of color, and a proud size 8, received the cropped shot (which only features her face), and here is the final kicker, her cover was in black and white, where as the other women's where in full color. 

I don't know how someone could come up with an idea like that, let alone sign off on it, but Elle has proven for a third time, that something is amuck.  It will be interesting to see how they try to spin this one.
