"American Idol" judge Simon Cowell's sharp tongue has gotten him in trouble with gay rights activists and now fat activists are joining the fray.
Sandy Schaffer of the National Association To Advance Fat Acceptance told "Access Hollywood" she found Cowell's remark "childish" and "stupid."
Fellow judge Paula Abdul did not defend her colleague to "Access Hollywood."
"He's an ass. He's a pill," she said. "He says the dumbest things sometimes."
