The star of Fox's "Mindy Project" Mindy Kaling is at the center of controversy over the cover of the new February "Elle" magazine.

There are actual four different covers each one featuring the "Women of TV"; Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler and Allison Williams.

The problem is that Kaling's cover is the only one that's in black and white and the only one that's cut off at the chest.

That's sparked a firestorm of debate on the internet. Critics want to know why Kaling's cover only shows her face.

This is the second time that Elle has had a questionable cover involving a woman with womanly curves.

In November, Elle featured Melissa McCarthy, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley and Marion  Cotillard on separate "Women in Hollywood" covers.  The magazine came under fire for featuring McCarthy covered up in a designer coat while the other women showed a lot  more skin.

As far as the latest controversy, Kaling laughed it off with a humorous tweet:


"I love my @ELLEmagazine cover. It made me feel glamorous & cool. And if anyone wants to see more of my body, go on thirteen dates with me."
