Melissa McCarthy’s weight attacked in online review of ‘Identity Thief’

Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman star in the new film ‘Identity Thief’, due out this Friday. From the looks of the trailers, I’d rate this movie #1 on my must-see list. I think the trailer is absolutely hilarious, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t watch it nearly every day. And then today….. reviews started rolling out about the movie, and the one title that stands out the most in my mind calls ‘Identity Thief’ the “Worst movie of 2013 so far.” I am CRUSHED. The worst movie? Really? It’s that bad??? I’m so sad!! I don’t know if I’ll see it now, I generally tend to agree with the critics. I’m just so upset, I was really looking forward to this one.

Anyway, in one particular review, New York Observer reviewer named Rex Reed attacked Melissa McCarthy in an absolutely horrific way.

After calling the film “trashy” and a “chunk of junk,” Reed notes that McCarthy’s thief character is “tractor-sized” and “humongous.”

But that’s not all.

He also refers to the popular comedic star as a “female hippo.”

And if you didn’t think it was personal, Reed adds that McCarthy is “a gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious with equal success.”

What a pig. Seriously. I hate men like this. FYI: Here’s what Don Juan looks like himself.
