Melissa McCarthy fans are up in arms about a supposedly digitally retouched poster of "The Heat" that radically slims down the large-framed actress.

In the splashy U.K. advertisement for the upcoming buddy cop film, McCarthy's image appears to have been Photoshopped to carve inches off the funny lady's chin and neck.

British blog "The S***nit" created an eye-popping Gif that shows McCarthy, 42, before and after the possible computerized slim-down.

"Nobody is unclear [about] what Melissa McCarthy's body size is - she's plus-sized and proud. So why have the designers of this poster done their utmost to Photoshop a good 30 lbs off of McCarthy's face?" The S***nit's Ali Gray asked, adding that she was "flabbergasted by the flabby-blasting."

McCarthy, who stars opposite Sandra Bullock in the Paul Feig-directed "The Heat," had a poster that looked similarly altered for her role in the Kristen Wiig-helmed "Bridesmaids."

The zaftig star has embraced her curvy figure, even making plans to launch her own fashion line.

"Trying to find stuff that's still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible," she told The Hollywood Reporter. "It's either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle."

Appears Photoshopped? Definitely Photoshopped and the actual photo of her, she looks better than the Photoshop.
This is my wife GameFAQs and you can't have her.

Sandra Bullock looks photoshopped as well. That whole poster looks like something that was put together in 2 minutes.

That's kinda funny actually. The most shocking thing to me is that the fat chick is 42. I had no idea she was that old.

In the same way that the King Arthur poster having augmented Keira Knightley's bossom is a hint that she should get implants?

Any advertising you see will have been altered in some way, shape, or form. It's not surprising but it's pretty damn horrible in this case.

Let's see how much fat-shaming this topic will produce.
