Mindy Kaling defends Elle cover shoot

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Comedian Mindy Kaling is backing up Elle Magazine after controversy erupted over her recent cover shoot.

Critics are upset it's just a face shot, done in black and white, when other, thinner actresses are featured in the magazine in color, full figure shots.

They say the magazine discriminates against fuller figured celebrities.

Kaling, meanwhile, has tweeted that she loves the picture and that it made her feel "glamorous and cool."
