Critic Blasts Melissa McCarthy’s Weight In Review Of New Movie “Identity Thief”

It’s one thing for a movie critic to blast an actor’s performance in a movie but what about a personal attack on the her weight? One critic may have crossed the line with what he said about Melissa McCarthy’s weight. says that New York Observer movie critic Rex Reed (who obviously didn’t like the movie) called Melissa McCarthy “tractor-sized”, “humongous” and refers to her as a “female hippo.”

They report he also added this about Melissa:

“Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) is a gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious with equal success.”
