Actress Melissa McCarthy is throwing cold water on yet another social media-fueled controversy.

Last week, Elle Magazine was criticized for showing a picture of the plus-sized actress wearing a coat for its November Hollywood Edition, while other actresses in the same shoot wore less clothing.

McCarthy says she doesn't understand what all the fuss is about.

She says she chose to wear the coat, saying she was tired of summer and wanted to wear some cashmere.
