Kirstie Alley’s ‘Circus Fat’ Comment in New Jenny Craig Commercial Draws Criticism [VIDEO]
Kirstie Alley is returning to an old friend. She’s back with Jenny Craig but her new ad is drawing some criticism.
Some people are upset with Alley saying ‘Jenny, I wanna come home. No, no, no. I’m not like circus fat, I just wanna lose 20 pounds.’
Kirstie Alley is talking about being "circus fat"… I guess thats why she's wearing more make up than any clowns I've ever seen.

I don't care what weight they're at or how they look, fat people are not a goddamn circus sideshow. #notyourgoodfatty

Alley has struggled with her weight for years. She lost 75 pounds with Jenny Craig when she was the spokesperson from 2004 to 2007. Alley also got back into shape after appearing on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ in 2011. She tells The Today Show, ‘I went off the rails a bit. Man troubles and the holidays made it all too easy to eat too much and regain the weight. Listen, men, stop upsetting your women. You make them fat.’
