Melissa McCarthy received a backlash last week for her photo on the cover of Elle magazine's "Women in Hollywood" issue.
Appearing in a large green overcoat and a messy coif, the funny lady was criticized for being too hidden with some critics referring to the magazine cover as fat-shaming because barely any of Melissa's body was visible.
