By now many of you have probably heard about Mindy Kaling‘s Elle Magazine cover controversy. In case ya missed it, Elle did the thing that they’ve done before (along with other magazines) where they put a non-super-skinny person on the cover and made sure we didn’t see any of that person’s body. People (AKA the interwebs) flipped out in response. But what’s interesting is that Mindy Kaling herself has come out in defense of the cover and is opening up more about her issue with those of us who thought we were supporting her by criticizing Elle magazine. I think she makes some really strong points about how the so-called outrage only seemed to bring more negative attention to her body, which isn’t necessarily something anybody would want. Peep the video above to hear what she said in an interview on Late Show With David Letterman.
