If there’s one thing fashion loves to do, it’s push the envelope. And while some of the stories included on this list made the cut due to a deliberately controversial editorial vision (ahem, Terry Richardson), many more made the list by sheer (and often embarrassingly obtuse) accident. But one thing is for sure, these are the stories that kept tongues wagging, traffic spiking, and many publicists very, very busy.
In all the controversy over Maura Kelly’s anti-fatties post for Marie Claire, the one side we haven’t heard from is Mike & Molly, the CBS sitcom that inspired Kelly’s post in the first place. Last night, Fancast caught up with creator Mark Roberts who had some choice words for Kelly, as well as the magazine.
On Monday, Marie Claire blogger Maura Kelly published a post titled, “Should ‘Fatties’ Get a Room? (Even on TV?)”. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the piece was incendiary (though we’ve excerpted a few sections after the jump just to get your heart rate going), but what has been most surprising about the controversy is Marie Claire’s response.
