Dwarf Couple Vs The Soup

couple suing the soup

Not your smartest move ever, E!

Dwarf couple Cara and Gibson Reynolds are suing E! Entertainment and The Soup host Joel McHale for making "scurrilous, false, defamatory, and hurtful comments about them."

The couple tried desperately to have children for years, and they finally had a child who died one day after birth. They never gave up though, and eventually had a healthy baby.

Given their history with trying to have children, it should come as no surprise that they were NOT happy in 2009 when Joel McHale and The Soup featured a spoof-reality-show entitled Fertile Little Tattooed Pageant Parents Who Enjoy Baking, in which they used a photo of the Reynolds couple from AP.

While showing the AP photo on the show, McHale commented on the couple and said they're "happy dwarfs … that can't stop procreating." AND after that, The Soup "allegedly showed a woman purported to be Cara in labor, in the process of giving birth in a bathroom." Yikes!

According to Cara Reynolds, the Soup piece cause her to suffer "depression, insomnia, upset stomach, sleep interference and experiencing feelings of shame and degradation."

Looks like The Soup chose the wrong photo to use in their spoof piece.

Hopefully they're able to work things out and make it right with the Reynolds.

    I am going to stop watching E! and NBC's Community-featuring Joel McHale. This is discrimination towards people with dwarfism and I refuse to patronize anybody that participates in or supports this type of behavior, whether they are comedians/comediennes or not. I am glad that they are standing up for their rights.

    Don't sign up to be in a reality show if you can't take the heat! No reality show= your privacy. Duh.

    Re: Benjamin Arrowood – it's called a joke - get a personality.

    People take things too seriously.

    I like how fatso Perez is trying to talk down to E! and Joel McHale about making a joke about someone. What a fat loser! Lose more weight and certainly lose that disgusting face.

    I love Joel McHale. He's funny and hot. I can understand that it may have hurt their feelings and embarrassed them, but a lawsuit just brings more attention to the situation. A lot of people probably never saw it or just forgot about it. It was two years ago, so they are just now suing over it? I think they just want some extra money. Why bring it all back up now? Just move forward and be thankful that you have a child.

    It is no holds bare on that show and everyone is goofed on, little or not. If your that sensitive, don't put yourself in the public eye.



  11. 11

    Boo whoo….your in the public eye. You set yourself up for this. Learn to make fun of yourself and you will be a lot happier. Life is short - enjoy and laugh. I love the Soup….now I'll watch it even more!

    I love Joel McHale! These people need to get over it. They're only out to make money out of the situation.

    These irresponsible twats need to get a life. If you have thin skin, don't make yourself a public figure. Oh yeah, also realize we still do have the right to free speech. And humor. At least Joel isn't bringing a human into the world with the full knowledge they will have a genetic mutation that inevitably makes life more difficult. What narcissists.

    Bitches need to calm the fuck down. I highly doubt this caused you to have an UPSET STOMACH. Seriously. It's a joke, dumbasses.



  15. 15

    WAAAAHHHHH!!!!!! If you are going to put yourself in the public by having a damn reality show about your life, expect people to make fun of you. Especially on a show like The Soup!

    This just pisses me off. Take a god damn joke, I'm pretty sure he's said worse about a lot of other people. And good job calling attention to it, how many people are going to go look for the video now?
    I hope he makes fun of them for this now.



  17. 17

    Seriously? They're obviously just trying to make a quick buck by suing E!.

    Re: Benjamin Arrowood – Really? Its not like he only makes fun of little people. EVERYONE gets made fun of on The Soup. It was a joke that these people and you need to get over!
