1.That time she politely shut down a reporter who made sexist comments about her in a film review. Mic down.
2.When she was like, "People don't stop at size 12." THE MIC IS DOWN.
3.But then she picked the mic back up briefly so she could be like, "There is just this weird thing about how we perceive women in this country; I would love to be a part of breaking that down."
4.And then took action and began her own clothing line, coming out this August. Hmm, seems like that mic is DOWN AGAIN.
5.Remember when she related her work back to the struggle she wants to help her daughters avoid? That poor, wounded mic sure does.
6.When she showed up to The Daily Show in a damn Jon Stewart dress. Mic not down — mic obliterated.
7.When she firmly grabbed the mic, treated us to a perfect re-enactment of her old headshots, and then threw that mic to the ground.
8.When she thought she blew her Bridesmaids audition with Paul Feig, and was literally all of us. Mic tossed to the floor with a subtle, relatable flourish.
9.When she reminded us all that she's just a normal mom who got her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Such a cute mic drop.
10.Oh, wait, no she's not, she's MELISSA MCCARTHY, SEXUAL GODDESS. FAREWELL, MICROPHONE.
11.When she had the perfect response to people asking the secret to her recent weight loss. Bye, mic.
12.When she hilariously and accurately summarized the universal experience for women in comedy. Mic demolished.
13.Need a microphone? Sorry, Melissa dropped it when she said, "I’m trying to take away the double standard of, ‘You’re an unattractive bitch because your character was not skipping along in high heels.'"
14.That time she hid in Ellen's bushes, revealed herself, and the mic was no more.
