The Jessica Simpson Controversy Regarding Her Weight
Jessica Simpson generated a great deal of attention when she debuted her new figure at a concert in Charlottesville, Virginia, where she was opening for Rascal Flatts. Her new Jessica Dean look resulted in a good deal of criticism by the media regarding her weight.
Wearing leather pants, Jessica commented on the issue when she appeared on stage Wednesday, “Thank you for your support. Stay positive, and pray out loud! I love you guys, good night.”
And although she did not mention the negative press she’s been receiving lately regarding her weight, she added, “Please remember, no matter what you go through in life, somebody else might have it harder. So just appreciate. I feel like in our world today, we focus on so many things that are completely pointless.”
Since her recent onstage appearance and the ensuing negative publicity, friends and family have come to her defense. Recently, her brother-in-law, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, spoke out about her weight. He said that the media is too harsh on women and that this has a negative affect on young girls.
