Ashlee Simpson defends her big sister

The Superficial / January 28, 2009

Ashlee Simpson took to her blog to defend Jessica Simpson’s honor which I assumed got mistaken for a Ho-Ho because I’m a terrible person:

I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister’s weight. A week after the inauguration and with such a feeling of hope in the air for our country, I find it completely embarrassing and belittling to all women to read about a woman’s weight or figure as a headline on Fox News.
All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you’re a celebrity, there shouldn’t be a different standard.
Is this something you would say to your wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, or even a friend?
I seriously doubt it.
How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure?
Now can we focus on the things that really matter.

Yeah, I’m with you, Ashlee. How dare FOX News run a headline about your sister’s weight? That’s my job! Do I report the news solely from a blatant Republican viewpoint? Shit no. So let’s try and maintain some boundaries, people. For journalism’s sake.
