When does being funny become flat-out mean? It's a fine line, but we may have just found the answer. Over the weekend, Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky brought their gorgeousness to the Oscars. Elsa and her baby bump walked the red carpet in a turquoise sequin dress and it was...a little underwhelming, but that's totally subjective.
Yeah, maybe it could have been a little tighter or she could have chosen a different style, but for the love of fashion, the girl is pregnant--with twins, so we give her huge props for just leaving the house.
On E!'s Fashion Police, however, they had a different point of view, one that some are taking serious issue with. "First of all, I'm sorry, look at her tummy," Joan Rivers commented. "We now know that Thor's hammer works in real life too. She is huge! Come on. I know why she's huge. I saw her sonogram," she said, and then showed Ellen DeGeneres' selfie.
OK, whatever with that. Not funny, but it's Joan Rivers and she's a comedian, so she's just doing what she always does. Joan's co-host, George Kotsiopoulos, however, went next level on it. "The last thing I wanna do is rip on a pregnant woman because it is incredible that you can do this with your bodies," he said, before he proceeded to...well, rip a pregnant woman. "But I would be remiss to not--it's a horrible dress on her. That doesn't look like a baby bump, it looks like a beer belly. I'm sorry and I acknowledge that that's a horrible thing to say, but it's the wrong dress on this woman."'
Yeah, that actually is a pretty horrible thing to say. We get it, it's not the best dress she could have chosen, but a "beer belly"? Not cool. Angry fans immediately took to Twitter to defend Elsa--not that she needs anyone to come to her defense, though. Seriously. Let's not forget how she ended up with that baby bump in the first place. Elsa, ftw.
