Mindy Kaling took to Twitter today to respond to critics who bashed her recent "Elle" cover. The cover features a close-up shot of the actress and writer’s upper body instead of the standard full-body, which some critics have blasted as racist and fat phobic. Kaling, however, disagrees:
I love my @ELLEmagazine cover. It made me feel glamorous & cool. And if anyone wants to see more of my body, go on thirteen dates with me.
