On Saturday, commuter Kara Florish was minding her own business on the train in London when someone handed her a card and walked away. When she looked down, she was pretty surprised to find that this anonymous person had given her a nasty, fat-shaming note.
It's really not glandular, it's your gluttony...
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 [sic] pig is used as an insult. You are not a pig. You are a fat, ugly human.
Kara was obviously appalled and shared the card on Twitter, but some people said they thought the whole thing was fake. Because there are no horrible people in the world, duh:
Then on Monday, author Sean Thomas Knox wrote that he witnessed a similar incident on the underground as well:
The British Transport Police commented on the "organization" who call themselves Overweight Haters LTD.
Look, whoever these people are they probably live very sad, lonely lives and deserve as much pity as condemnation. In fact, they're probably just one guy, who is very good at jumping on and off trains quickly. It's only a matter of time before the train doors close on his fat-shaming ass.
