In a February 5th movie review for Melissa McCarthy’s new movie “Identity Thief” film critic Rex Reed had harsh comments about her weight calling her a female hippo amongst other names. Hollywood actresses are known for being svelte and thin and Melissa McCarthy is a plus sized comedic actress that has found success in movies like ‘Bridesmaids’ and her show Mike & Molly. Rex Reed was very sexist by looking at McCarthy’s overweight body and attacking are based on that, and all together ignoring her talents as an actress and for that reason he received criticsm from Hollywood, including Jenny McCarthy (Melissa McCarthy’s cousin).
