The world is full of delight, love, surprise, excitement — and of course, hateful trolls intent on making the lives of well-meaning people everywhere miserable with no cause or reason. While riding the tube in London on Monday, a young woman named Kara Florish reports that she was handed a card with the word “Fat” scrawled across the front and a long screed against “fat, ugly humans” on the back. Nice.
Claiming to be from “Overweight Haters, LTD” the card begins with this charming sentiment: “Our organisation hates and resents fat people. We object to the enormous amount of food resources you consume while half the world starves.”
Florish took to Facebook and Twitter to say she hopes that people tweet, post, and share the card all over the internet, as she refuses to be fat-shamed by some loser with a free hand. She tweeted that the card “is hateful + cowardly + could potentially upset people struggling with confidence.”
Another Twitter user reported having seen a woman crying after a similar card was handed to her by a young man. Surely these monsters have something better to do.
