Melissa McCarthy Slammed As “Tractor-Sized” By Disgustingly Insulting Movie Critic!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooMelissa McCarthy

melissa mccarthy obese slams movie critic

We are so NOT cool with this!

Melissa McCarthy is a queen - a HIGHlarious, talented, delightful, charming, adorbz QUEEN!

But some movie critic decided to go far beyond being offensive when he reviewed her new flick, Identity Thief.

Rex Reed of the New York Observer woke up on the freaking stupid wrong side of the bed when he described the actress in the article as:

“[C]acophonous, tractor-sized Melissa McCarthy.”

And no, it doesn’t end there as he continued with the petty insults by further describing her as:

“[A] gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious with equal success.”

We don’t know if we’re more upset with the completely unnecessary body and personality slams or him calling her career short!

Someone CLEARLY doesn’t know about her long and totally awesome run on Gilmore Girls!

It’s one thing for Rex to dislike a movie for actual MOVIE reasons, but it’s another to call the female lead a “hippo” while her costar, Jason Bateman, is described as “charming, talented, attractive and versatile.”

And considering she's been so wonderfully open and honest about accepting her body any way that it is, this guy seems exceptionally jerky for picking on it.

Next time, Rex, stick to the movie … if you even get a chance to review another one.

    A total ass! He's there to review the movie not her body size! He should be fired!!

  2. Kissofdeath says – reply to this


    He's a sexist moron. She's so talented and awesome. I feel bad for her.

  3. 3

    This was actually a personal insult against Melissa. You are there to review the movie not do a personal attack. Shame shame on you, you big bully!!!

  4. 4

    Umm…she is a fat slob; we all love her, but get real….SHE'S FAT!

  5. 5

    Re: Pansy Hunter – body size and weight has NOTHING to do with talent, comedy or success. The only thing it has to do is giving ignorant mouths like yours something to whine about. She is an amazing comedian/actress… you ? well, I'm sure you are nothing more than a self-loathing, insecure, sad little cretin. Get a hold of your jealousy issues before you judge someone who is making a better life for themselves than you ever will.

    So not being a cookie cutter super skinny hollywood actress is a gimmick? I feel bad for all actresses that are anything other than skinny and pretty - they are only allowed to be funny. It is ok to laugh at them, but not to take them seriously.

    Re: Pansy Hunter

    Holy fucking shitballs Batman, somebody needs to get fucking laid. What a piece of shit. "Telling it like it is'? How about you're just being a goddamned pathetic fuck face. Please kill yourself.

    I can't believe no one brings up as disgusting as this guy's comments are they don't hold a candle to the things pumpkinHead Peeerez says about people on a daily basis.

  9. Fat Slob She Is says – reply to this


    She's morbidly obese. You've got to roll her in flour to find the wet spot. She needs to put down the triple stacked buger and supersized fries run as fast as her tubby legs can carry her to the hopsital to have her stomach banded. She's only appears funny because everybody likes laughing at fat people.

  10. Max says – reply to this


    Re: Pansy Hunter

    I undertsand that is also why you must hate people like Chris Cristy. He can't be any good at his job he is so FAT. He is so FAT that he may be Rush Limbaughs twin FATTY.

  11. 11

    She is beautiful, she has a wonderful talent and I believe that she has every right to be whatever size she wants. I would only have to say, for her health,, she needs to try and lose some.

  12. 12

    Re: Pansy Hunter
    you're terrible

  13. 13

    pansy hunter you're calling people names, how old are you? does your mommy know your on line? I bet you're thin, good looking, talented, fulfilled and happy! LOL

  14. 14

    What a dick.

  15. Maggie M says – reply to this


    Funny, I doubt anyone was saying this shit about john candy or any other heavy set MALE comedians. Give me a fucking break. Your only picking on her cause shes a woman and of course is supposed to be a size two to hold your pea brain attention and get your 2 inch semi somewhat hard. She is fucking hysterical just watching the trailer to her movie is funny, she was also funny in bridesmaids. Whether or not your a fan attacking her character and critiquing a movie two very different fucking things. Shes fat get the fuck over it ! So its 3/4s of AMERICA dumbass'

  16. 16

    Rex Reed probably has a small dick and picks on ladies for anything he can…over compensating!!

  17. Yoyomamma says – reply to this


    Re: Pansy Hunter – what a shame that you have to be so uneducated. Try using a word that is not profane. And please by all means, feel free to throw the first stone when you are perfect. But, for some reason I doubt that will be happening any time soon.

  18. syd3 says – reply to this


    Why would this actress be soooo threatening to some people of the male gender (including film critics, who are predominately men)? Perhaps because this incredibly talented actress is breaking down one of the last barriers through which men maintain their sexist hold over women in industrialized societies — the area of appearance — particularly weight. When women break through this taboo, what will hold them back?

  19. 19

    Just because we have to accept everybody by the way they are and respect everybody looks doesnt mean that she doesnt have a problem. I think the guy adressed her problem in an insultant way, he wasnt trying to be anything more than just nasty.
    But lets not cover the truth with saying "she is talented and she is beautiful", yes she is those things and she is also obese, which is something we shouldnt allow as to be ok.
    Obesity is a disease, it kills people and it should be adressed and fixed. I dont know if she is doing anything about it, but she should consider doing it, and not for the looks cause she is pretty but because its a health issue.
    You CAN be big boned and fat (not obese, Im talking about just plain fat) and still be healthy. Obesity is NOT healthy. Is BAD.
    And people should stop slamming skinny people, not everybody starves to be skinny. Some people just have it easier, and lots of young celebrities dont have issues being skinny cause duh… they are young.
    I do worry tho about people like Bethany Frankel but then again Ive seen her doing exercise and she always says she eats healthy so go figure, probably she says the truth.

    Re: perezisadumbass – Just because you are overweight does not mean you are unhealthy. Plenty of overweight people have lower cholesterol than many skinny people. And just because there are "health concerns" for being overweight does not mean that people get a blank slate for attacking another person. Smoking is a health conern but it isn't appropriate to do a character assasination of that person if they smoke.

  21. 21

    Welllll, she is huge. It is not healthy and she looks deformed.

  22. 22

    Rex Reed is a pissy little twit from Fort Worth, Texas

  23. 23

    You use to make fun of people like that all the time, Mario.

  24. 24

    Of course she's over weight. She knows it, we know it. That doesn't have anything to do with talent.

  25. Poop says – reply to this


    Rex Reed is an fruity asshole, but he's right–she's enormous and getting bigger by the day. She's very talented, but is killing herself

  26. Fairmaiden says – reply to this


    She is Beautiful and talented, but I do hope she cares about her health enough to get her weight under control. Not unhealthy skinny…but healthy.

  27. Juicy Lucy says – reply to this


    being that heavy is unhealthy and I find nothing sexy about obese people-man or woman. I was raised that all people deserve respect but I have difficulty with people who are morbidly obese. I recall when Joan Cusack told Gaborney Sidibe to lose weight. As cruel as it may sound, she was giving her some good advice. There is a difference between being big boned and a healthy weight and big boned and weight 300 lbs. As cruel as it may sound, obese people are the reason I exercise for an hour each day and watch my diet.

  28. 28

    She is a very funny and talented actress, loved her in Bridesmaids and will have to watch the trailer for Identify Theft.
    Not sure why Pansy Hunter posts on this site, she never has anything positive to contribute.

    I also never put much faith in Rex Reed's reviews, I have my suspicion he is getting paid by some of the studios.

  29. 29

    Re: Kissofdeath – How is that sexism? Jonah hill was treated the same way too. She's a one trick pony thats gotten by simply by playing obnoxious "fat chick" roles.

  30. 30

    I agree with Rex. I can't see this movie or watch her Mike and Molly tv show because I don't want to see fat people. I find her disgusting and morbidly obese. Can't she lose weight and still be funny? AND HEALTHY?

  31. 31

    And who the hell is he? this guy is totally unprofessional and a dickhead, he is suppose to be doing reviews for the movie, not personal attack. But who the hell cares wut he thinks? Melissa is laughing her way to the bank, she is such a talented actress, this Rex guy is what is totally wrong with this world, everybody only concentrate on look and sexiness, what about real talent? Just like Adele, everybody says she is fat, this and that, but she is one of the best vocalist out there, when you are an artist or actress, we only care about talent, I would very much rather watch melissa with good acting than sexy megan fox who can't act if her life depends on it. I don't know why people only care about looks, if that's the case, you shouldn't be watching movies or listening to music, just watch porn!

    Melissa McCarthy is a very talented comedienne and actress. Maybe this a$$hole should get over himself and look beyond the size of the person…he's not a true journalist at all…my daughter is a journalist and she NEVER insults anyone…her job is to get the story and leave her personal opinions behind…besides, my daughter would NEVER be an insulting moron like this guy…His old a$$ should be fired!!! I love Melissa and I would pay anything, anytime to see her in a movie or as a live comedienne…you rock Melissa!

    Re: Pansy Hunter – You're a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge ASSHOLE and a fucking bully…small-minded idiot with shit for brains…people like you don't even deserve to breathe the same fucking air as the rest of the decent people…you're a shithead…get over it.

    Re: deejayu4ic@gmail.com – I hope that one day you get a doctor that's really fat, the only doctor that can save your life and karma will come back to bite you in YOUR old fat ass…you're an idiot…people like YOU make me sick…I bet you don't have a life either and that you're some fucking loser that doesn't have 2 nickels to rub together…instead of being jealous of her, try being happy for someone in your life and maybe your life won't be so miserable…you make me sick…you go Melissa, and keep raking it in and piss off losers like this!!!

    Re: Fat Slob She Is – And you probably like no talent hacks like Beyonce, who like to show their ass off because they can't really sing!!! At least Melissa has talent! You're a fucking idiot.

  41. savmom says – reply to this


    I love this woman. I could watch Bridesmaids over and over again just to see her. She is hysterical and very talented.

  42. 42

    i think she's awesome and talented and proves that you don't have to (but can be) a size 2 to make it in the business they call show. But if you have a problem with her keep it to yourself because you just come off as an ignorant douche and ignorant douches never win because they're seen as ignorant and therefore insignificant.

  43. BobbieFisher2 says – reply to this


    I thought he died years ago. I guess that proves how short his career was.

    Re: bleahf
    "doesnt mean that she doesnt have a problem"

    Except HER problem, for HER to deal with if she so chooses, is none of Reed's fucking business.

  45. Tracie says – reply to this


    That is pretty rich coming from someone who declares a woman pregnant if a wisp of air blows out her shirt, she looks a little bloated after a big meal or she has the balls to show the natural form of the female body.

    Aren't you also the guy who posted a "People we wish would get back in shape this year?" list followed by a slideshow filled almost entirely with people in good shape, many of whom just had a baby?

    While I agree that the review was harsh and unnecessary, you are not one to comment because you are absolutely, without a doubt, just as bad. And worse, you're passive aggressive about it hiding feigning true concern and kindness.

  46. AC says – reply to this


    Re: perezisadumbass
    I agree. From a health standpoint she definitely does need to lose weight. But let's be honest: hardly anyone would be saying $#!t about a fat guy in Hollywood. For some dumb reason, it's more acceptable for men to be fat than women.

  47. chickster says – reply to this


    Why is it that every thin celebrity out there is trashed and dragged through the dirt for gaining 20 pounds and that's FINE. But someone like Melissa McCarthy or that girl from Precious can be obese and a total model of unhealthy living but no one can make a comment about it? That is a double standard.

    Kelly Clarkson can gain weight and still be a quarter of the size of MM and people jump all over her. That is bullying just the same.

  48. Kate says – reply to this


    Not worth covering Reed, please ignore him next time Perez. Perhaps that way he will grow up.

  49. 49

    stop shovelling junk food down ur gut and remove ur greasy fingers from the keyboard to defend this house size woman shes HUGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE and makes no attempt to lose the weight she deserves what she gets the fast food companies love fat UGLY PEOPLE glorified that way people will continue to stuff their faces with food 63% of usa is TOO FAT TO JOIN THE MILITARY.. stop eating u fat cow

  50. 50

    she looks like she swallowed cute lil jason bateman

  51. Roxy says – reply to this


    Re: NookiesWA – she's actually not a "one trick pony" as she was on Gilmore girls for years not playing a "funny fat person" but a lovely and loyal family friend.

  52. 52

    Rex Reed has always been a complete idiot. I'm shocked to see that he's still reviewing for anyone; he should have been put out to pasture long, long ago.

  53. dale says – reply to this


    yeah, he should be suspended for a month. because, as in typical fashion - people on TV only are obnoxious about two groups of people anymore - obese and gays, and oh goodness, don't be both! Cher's daughter and Rosie are axed into pieces like a piece of wood (and if you doubt me, just watch 1 week's worth of night time cable talk shows).

  54. Kitten says – reply to this


    Re: perez posse number 777

    Why am I not surprised that you assume anyone who thinks Reed should leave his personal opinion out a movie review must also be overweight. I'm 5'3", weigh 120 lbs, all of it toned and in the best places, and I still contend that Reed should have shut the fuck up and done what he's paid to do; review MOVIES, not people.

  55. Kitten says – reply to this


    Re: setincali

    "Out to pasture"

    Ageism? Tsk. I agree that he has always been a dick. He's also an utter loser. The same guy who was charged (2000) with larceny and criminal possession of stolen property after shoplifting music CD's, because he (cough) put them in his pocket by accident, forgot they were there, but intended to pay all along, is in no position to ridicule others.
