Since Christina Hendricks wore a dress cut lower than the corporate tax rate at the Monday premiere of "I Don't Know How She Does It," bloggers and news sites have been enjoying every opportunity to run as many photos as possible of the busty star (guilty as charged).
The correctly-priced free Metro NY newspaper, however, took the joke far beyond tasteful, pulling her co-star, Sarah Jessica Parker, into the mix.
Running a photo of the cast, the genius editor added the following caption (via BWE):
"You know what's a great way for Sarah Jessica Parker to hide the fact that she has a large nose? Make sure she stands next to Christina Hendricks' cleavage. Here are the two actresses at the premiere of their new movie, 'I Don't Know How She Does It,' on Monday in New York City."
Putting aside the face value idiocy of the statement -- Parker has been shining on red carpets since childhood -- it's also wildly insensitive. Parker is of Jewish heritage, and any cultural awareness would have informed the writer that noses have long been used to stereotype and single out people of the Jewish faith. Take this Nazi children's book, written by war criminal Julius Streicher, publisher of Der Stürmer, for example.
