Marie Claire Update: The Magazine Responds To One Commenter’s Allegations

We’ve been keeping you up-to-date on the ongoing tension between Marie Claire and various commenters who felt that the magazine was “mean spirited” in its assessment of six health and fitness bloggers (known as “the big six”) in its article “The Hunger Diaries.”

Marie Claire responded to its readers, letting them know that their opinions were being heard.

Then, someone who went by the name “VeggieGirl88″ left a comment under the article alleging that the magazine had never contacted her for the piece and that the article’s writer, Katie Drummond, fabricated certain aspects of her life and experiences in the story.

Marie Claire quickly responded to these allegations in the comments section as well:

Hi VeggieGirl88, we actually do have a record of our mutual correspondence on file. We can contact you privately to confirm. Thanks.

The plot thickens!
