Jessica Simpson is calling out former Vogue editor Sally Singer for body shaming her in a "nauseating" article celebrating the Met Gala, which was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Taking to Instagram, the singer shared a 1957 photo of Sophia Loren giving a sly side glance to Jayne Mansfield.

"Feeling a little like Jayne Mansfield after reading this (inaccurate!) oral history of the #MetBall where I am body shamed by #SallySinger," Simpson captioned the image.

She was referencing a Vogue piece in which several industry insiders shared their memories of the Met Gala in an article published on Monday. Singer took a swipe at Simpson for how she was dressed in a recollection of the 2007 Met Gala.

"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," Singer said in the article. "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.’"

Simpson was surprised that women were still body shaming one another in this day and age.

"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 wrote. "To read this much anticipated article about the classiest fashion event there is and have to be shamed by another woman for having boobs in 2020 is nauseating."

For years, Simpson has faced scrutiny over her body. She has worked hard at self-love but admitted it was still difficult.

"It is not easy, it hurts," she told People earlier this year. "And still, I feel like we all look in the mirror and are not 100% all the time. I mean, we all see our flaws. Some, the others don’t see. And mine were just out there for the world to rip apart, when they weren’t even flaws. When they were made into flaws that I didn’t know I had."
