Adele Fans Take Aim At Karl Lagerfeld Over 'Fat' Remark

Adele's fans have shown their dedication to the star by rounding on designer Karl Lagerfeld after he branded the singer "a little too fat".

The fashion mogul made the remark in a recent interview, in which he gave his opinion on current chart musicians.

When asked about singer, he declared: "She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice."

His comments have now come back to haunt him as Adele's followers jumped to her defence on social networking sites and music forums.

Paul Copland wrote: "Cretin. Adele is living proof that weight doesn't link with talent. She's beautiful", while another added: "Karl Lagerfeld is a little ignorant to be given a platform for vile comments."

One fan raged: "A little too fat for what? Too fat to become a global phenomenon, or too fat to be a talentless clothes horse? This bloke seems like an idiot."

Adele has previously admitted she's always embraced her fuller figure, revealing: "It's never been an issue. At least, I've never hung out with the sort of horrible people who make it an issue."
