Kim Kardashian is sticking up for Jessica Simpson following a NFL commercial that mocked the pop star’s weight. Kardashian spoke with PopEater at her own charity event about the controversial ad, telling us exclusively that the NFL and Fox “shouldn’t be making fun of Jessica Simpson who has such an amazing body.”
The NFL Fox Sunday cartoon featured characters of the Dallas Cowboys laughing about Simpson’s oft-critiqued figure. The network and Burger King, which sponsored the Oct. 11 cartoon, apologized for the lampoon Wednesday.
“I’m glad they apologized,” Kardashian told Popeater from the red carpet of the launch event for Fusionbeauty’s Infatuation Lip Gloss. “Fox shouldn’t be making fun of Jessica Simpson who has such an amazing body.”
During the Fox skit, the Dallas head coach is seen asking Simpson’s former boyfriend, Dallas Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo, “Is Jessica around, we sure could use a defensive tackle.” While Cowboy star and Romo pal Jason Witten adds in the skit: “Unlike Tony, at least Jessica comes up BIG when it counts.”
It’s comments like these which make the famously-curvy Kardashian angry.
“She’s clearly not overweight and laughing about that gives young girls the wrong message,” Kim told PopEater.
