Heidi Klum Slams Designer For Calling Her Fat

Heidi Klum usually gets nothing but praise and compliments in her life.

So she was taken completely off guard recently when a fashion designer called her “too heavy” for the runway. We all couldn’t believe Wolfgang Joop’s brash comments, and neither could Heidi. She’s an icon!

So rather than stay quiet on the issue, Heidi spoke out in her defense, releasing a statement through her publicist to the New York Post saying, "Wolfgang is obviously trying to revive his sagging career and get press for himself by riding Heidi’s coattails."

And Tim Gunn has also rushed to her defense, slamming Joop’s ridiculous comments.

He tells the New York Daily News, "It’s totally ridiculous! (Heidi) is a sensitive soul, and it’s very troubling to her. If she’s fat, other women should throw themselves off a train. I can wrap my hand around her bicep."

And besides her stunning looks, Heidi has expanded her empire outside the realm of just modeling. How many models can say that they’ve done that?

We’re not sure what Wolfgang’s beef is with Heidi, but we certainly don’t understand it! We’re glad people agree with us on how amazing Heidi is, and in case you forgot, here's a photo of her from the Victoria's Secret Fashion show in Miami just a few months ago.
