Democrat-controlled media were up in arms when Barbra Streisand asked a Hollywood actress one question

Diva Barbra Streisand is beloved by the Left.

She is one of many celebrities who rails against Donald Trump and the Republicans nonstop.

But Democrat-controlled media were up in arms when Streisand asked a Hollywood actress one question.

Singer and actress Barbra Streisand has a reputation for not being the nicest person.

Her attitude and her tendency to be frank is well documented in Hollywood circles. 

In fact, she launched a lawsuit against a website because one of the 12,000 photographs he had taken to document coastal erosion had her home in it and she claimed it “violated her privacy.” 

This resulted in a tidal wave of internet users downloading the photos and her own buzz term, the Streisand effect which means unintentionally bringing more public attention to an item one is trying to censor.

So naturally, she did not do herself any favors when she was accused of “fat-shaming” Hollywood actress Melissa McCarthy.

Oh, oh, oh, Ozempic!

McCarthy posted a photo on Instagram standing next to director and dance choreographer Adam Shankman, who did the dance choreography for Boogie Nights, and Streisand responded with a comment that lit social media on fire.

Streisand wrote, “Give [Shankman] my regards . . . did you take Ozempic?”

Yikes.

Ozempic is the controversial diabetes drug that has become widely popular in Hollywood as a “miracle” weight-loss drug.

But some have begun speaking out against this latest weight loss pill.

Streisand seemingly thought she had sent McCarthy a private direct message.

She followed up, “OMG – I went on Instagram to see the photos we’d posted of the beautiful flowers I’d received for my birthday! Below them was a photo of my friend Melissa McCarthy who I sang with on my Encore album. She looked fantastic! I just wanted to pay her a compliment. I forgot the world is reading!”

McCarthy took it all in stride and responded in good spirits.

She responded, “The takeaway is Barbra Streisand knows I exist. She reached out to me and she thought I look good! . . . I win the day.”

The press, however, was not done with the topic and was eager to make mountains of a molehill with the usual pearl-clutching faux outrage.

The perpetuation of toxicity

USA Today wrote a piece that tied Streisand’s comments to “toxic diet culture.”

Elizabeth Altunkara, Director of Education at the National Eating Disorders Association, told the outlet, “Talking about appearance and asking questions about someone’s weight has become so normalized in our society that we don’t even think about the effects these have on the person being asked.”

There’s a fine line between being rude versus encouraging living a healthy lifestyle.

However, the radical response has been to promote “body positivity” and “fat acceptance,” common terms among activists with no regard to how the negative side effects of an obese lifestyle impact a person’s health.

Altunkara continued, “Asking about someone’s weight or making comments about their appearance perpetuates toxic diet culture and can harm people with body image issues, disordered eating, or an eating disorder.”

Any time a leftist uses the words “perpetuates” and “toxic” in the same sentence, run for the hills.

Encouraging people to be healthy is not “toxic.”

  • Cable news networks declared war on President Trump even before he was sworn into the Oval Office.

    Burned by their endless predictions that Hillary Clinton would win 2016, they’ve gone all out to destroy President Trump -- even working hand-in-glove with the Deep State to spread the bogus "Russian collusion” narrative.

    With the race for 2020 set to heat up, it’s sure to get worse.
