    Jessica Simpson Clapped Back At A Former Vogue Staffer For Making A Comment About Her Cleavage At The 2007 Met Gala

    "To be shamed by another woman for having boobs in 2020 is nauseating."

    On Monday (what was supposed to be Met Gala day), Vogue published an oral history of the Met Gala, where former Vogue staffers, celebrities, and designers shared behind-the-scenes stories.

    Sally Singer, who is the former Vogue Creative Digital Director, had a salacious story about Jessica Simpson and John Mayer at the 2007 gala.

    "One year, Jessica Simpson was there with John Mayer. She was wearing Michael Kors and her breasts maybe fell out of her dress on the red carpet...and then at dinner it was suddenly like, 'Whoa, Jessica Simpson’s breasts are across from me at the dinner table and they are on a platter and I’m looking at them,'" she said.

    "And John Mayer was putting his hands on them at the dinner table. He kind of reached down and I just remember thinking, 'Oh, celebrities, feel free to play here.' That’s what’s going on."

    After reading what Sally said, Jessica clapped back at her on Twitter and Instagram, saying that Sally body-shamed her.

    "Feeling a little like Jayne Mansfield after reading this (inaccurate!) oral history of the #MetBall where I am body shamed by #SallySinger," she wrote, alongside the iconic image of Sophia Loren side-eyeing the late actress.

    "But in all seriousness, I have persevered through shaming my own body and internalizing the world’s opinions about it for my entire adult life," she continued. "To read this article about the classiest fashion event there is and to be shamed by another woman for having boobs in 2020 is nauseating."

    As a fellow big-boobed lady, I relate to Jessica's struggle. Even if her boobs did pop out, chances are it was completely unintentional, given the dress's cleavage. Big boobs have a mind of their own!

    Many showed their support toward Jessica, including January Jones:
