Vogue Also Won’t Comment On The Controversial Story About The 7-Year-Old’s Diet

Dara-Lynn Weiss’s first-person essay about putting her daughter on a diet has already won her a book deal — along with unrelenting backlash. But the publisher won’t comment on the outrage, and neither will Vogue, a spokeswoman confirmed to BuzzFeed Shift today.

Is it possible the publishers hope a period of silence will make the Internet hate Weiss less for her erratic, disturbing attitude toward her daughter’s eating habits? Maybe they’re just reveling it because all the attention, even if it’s negative, will only help book sales along with the accompanying morning talk show slots she’ll inevitably land. Isn’t it great how we award bad mothering these days?
