Though she didn't address that spoof by name, she has posted the following message on her Twitter page: "I will never understand why people attack for a laugh. Own your beauty and don't listen to the judgement [sic]."
In the spoof -- which aired during the Oct. 11 pregame show -- animated version of Dallas Cowboy players poke fun at Simpson's shape. (Simpson's ex, Tony Romo, is a Cowboys quarterback.) A cartoon version of Cowboys coach Wade Phillips asks: "Say Tony, is Jessica around? We could use a defensive tackle!"
Both Fox and Burger King have apologized. "Our poor attempt at humor was insensitive and we deeply apologize to anyone who might have been offended," a statement read.
Simpson doesn't seem to be letting the incident get her down. The singer, 29, is currently in New York City, taking a brief break from shooting her upcoming VH1 reality show, The Price of Beauty.
"Having a great sushi filled dinner with friends and fall out of the chair laughter," she Twittered.
