Jessica marked turning 40 in a 14-year-old pair of True Religion jeans. The selfie showed the 100 pounds Jessica dropped after welcoming third baby Birdie Mae in March 2019 – while “Mad Men” actress January Jones told Jessica she looked “about 15,” other comments were less flattering.

“Girl, you are vanishing,” a third wrote as they added that Jessica was “absolutely stunning when you were bigger.” More below.
Remarks did not troll Simpson, who herself made body-shaming headlines earlier this year as a Vogue ex-staffer covered “breasts that fell out of her dress” at the 2007 Met Gala. One fan expressed concern, writing:
“This is the look of anorexia. Not hating! I love u Jessica! But-I’ve had it. Been through it. I know this look. It feels powerful. And it kills the beating heart.”
