Taking a break from celebrities for a highly requested story on body shaming – all the details from Daily Mail:
A commuter was left in shock after she was given a card by a stranger calling her a ‘fat, ugly human.’ British Transport Police are investigating after Kara Florish, 30, of Southend-on-Sea, Essex, shared a picture of the card she was given by someone working for ‘Overweight Haters Ltd’, on Facebook.
The card, which had the tag line: ‘It’s really not glandular, it’s your gluttony,’ read: ‘Our organisation hates and resents fat people. We object to the enormous amount of food resources you consume while half the world starves. We disapprove of your wasting NHS money to treat your selfish greed.
‘And we do not understand why you fail to grasp that by eating less you will be better off, slimmer, happy and find a partner who is not a perverted chubby-lover, or even find a partner at all. We also object that the beatiful pig is used as an insult. You are not a pig. You are a fat, ugly human [sic].’
Taking to Facebook to share her disdain, Ms Florish, who is a size 12/14, wrote:
‘Dear all – I was handed this card this morning on the underground and I would appreciate if people tweeted, posted etc all over the Internet. ‘I am not upset myself. I am smaller than the national average and not exactly obese, but this is hateful and cowardly and could potentially upset people struggling with confidence and eating disorders. Please tweet and share this if you are also outraged.’
