Melissa McCarthy had a very good weekend.
To top it all off, her new movie The Boss made $23.5 million at the box office this weekend, dethroning Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The movie only cost $29 million, so it will easily make back its budget.
So why did her critics spin it as a failure?
This didn't sit well with McCarthy's supporters on Twitter — at all.
A few pointed out the inherent hypocrisy of criticizing McCarthy's box office: Why isn't the same done for male stars who have similar flops?
At the end of the day, however, the hypocritical and baseless criticism will roll off McCarthy's back. The proof is in the numbers.
