Jessica Simpson Asks: Why Do People Attack "for a Laugh"?
Jessica Simpson isn't amused by the Fox NFL Sunday cartoon that mocks her weight.
Though she didn't address that spoof by name, she has posted the following message on her Twitter page: "I will never understand why people attack for a laugh. Own your beauty and don't listen to the judgement [sic]."
In the spoof -- which aired during the Oct. 11 pregame show -- animated version of Dallas Cowboy players poke fun at Simpson's shape. (Simpson's ex, Tony Romo, is a Cowboys quarterback.) A cartoon version of Cowboys coach Wade Phillips asks: "Say Tony, is Jessica around? We could use a defensive tackle!"
Both Fox and Burger King have apologized. "Our poor attempt at humor was insensitive and we deeply apologize to anyone who might have been offended," a statement read.
Simpson doesn't seem to be letting the incident get her down. The singer, 29, is currently in New York City, taking a brief break from shooting her upcoming VH1 reality show, The Price of Beauty.
"Having a great sushi filled dinner with friends and fall out of the chair laughter," she Twittered.
