Jessica Simpson Claps Back at Vogue Editor For Met Gala Comments

Jessica Simpson is speaking out about the comments made about her by Vogue editor Sally Singer.

Sally wrote that at the 2007 Met Gala, which Jessica attended with John Mayer, “her breasts maybe fell out of her dress on the red carpet … and then at dinner it was suddenly like, whoa, Jessica Simpson’s breasts are across from me at the dinner table and they are on a platter and I’m looking at them.”

Sally added that John “was putting his hands on them at the dinner table. He kind of reached down and I just remember thinking, ‘Oh, celebrities, feel free to play here. That’s what’s going on.’”

Jessica spoke out about the comments on her Instagram, along with a vintage picture of Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield.

“Feeling a little like Jayne Mansfield after reading this (inaccurate!) oral history of the #MetBall where I am body shamed by #SallySinger,” Jessica wrote.

She added, “But in all seriousness I have persevered through shaming my own body and internalizing the world’s opinions about it for my entire adult life. To read this much anticipated article about the classiest fashion event there is and have to be shamed by another woman for having boobs in 2020 is nauseating.”

Vogue has since apologized to Jessica in a statement (via ET): “We are sorry that Jessica felt body-shamed by the anecdote in our Met piece. That was never our intent, but we understand her reaction and we apologize for including it.”
