Big Fat Liars: People Mag Picks Morbidly Obese Actress as “World’s Most Beautiful”

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s one thing to be against the government getting involved in what you eat or how much you weigh.  Big Brother shouldn’t be in our kitchens or on our dinner tables.  But it’s entirely another thing to be subject to the constant, intellectually dishonest promotion of fat people as “beautiful” and “sexy.”  They aren’t . . . unless you’re a chubby chaser.

The Real Notorous B.I.G.: I Hope the Silkworms Got Paid Overtime to Make This Dress

And so goes the lying, latest issue of People Magazine, its “World’s Most Beautiful People” issue, which is on the stands today.  The magazine’s completely dishonest editors chose disgusting-looking, morbidly obese actress Gabourey Sidibe as one of the “World’s Most Beautiful People.”  Come on.  You know they don’t believe that.  And we don’t believe she’s among the “World’s Most Beautiful People,” either.  (In an appropriately-designated “Special Double Issue,” no less.)

This girl’s weight is sickening.  She’s gross to look at.  And it’s unhealthy.  But People is engaging in the usual affirmative action for fat people because the editors clearly feel bad for Sidibe.  She was correctly dissed by Howard Stern, who said on his satellite radio show that she would not find more acting work.  This choice by People is in response to his and others’ on-target comments. It’s the whole reason this mediocre actress was nominated for an Academy Award this year.  But Stern was incorrect, only because the hypocritical, usual Hollywood types felt bad for this fat chick the way they’d never feel bad for a wounded American soldier in Iraq or a victim of Islamic terrorism.

And part of it is because she’s not just any fat actress, she’s a Black fat actress in a ghetto movie  promoted by Oprah and based on a “gangsta lit” book.  Let’s face it:  there have been plenty of equally ugly White fat actresses, like Camryn Manheim.  And People didn’t lie to us and tell us they were the “World’s Most Beautiful People.”

Regardless of race, I’m beyond tired of the conventional Hollywood types telling us that being this fat–the girl is morbidly obese–is “beautiful.”  If they really believed this, they’d cast Sidibe as a romantic lead in movies like “Somewhere in Time,” as superheroes’ girlfriends in movies like “Iron Man” and “Superman.”  But that never happens.  Because we’d never stop laughing.  No-one would buy it.

It’s also beyond tiresome to tell people–particularly girls and women–that weighing over 300 pounds, as Sidibe does, is okay.  Stores like Torrid discourage weight loss and healthy lifestyles by selling cross-your-heart hammocks (in place of bras) and thongs that look like true-to-size Golden Gate Bridges to these humongazoids.  They fool girls into thinking anyone wants to see the world’s largest hamburger buns in this stuff and will think it’s “beautiful.” And now this People Mag stunt.

Enough already.  It’s not hot.  It’s not the “World’s Most Beautiful,” or even beautiful at all.  It’s not even cute.  Building morbidly obese fat people up to think so, only sets them up for health problems, and–more severe–extreme romantic and social disappointments.

Sorry, Gabby Sidibe.  You’re not the “World’s Most Beautiful.”  Just the world’s most artificially and unduly hyped fat chick.  The hype and the lies are the only things bigger than you.

I’ve never seen a larger Empress with no clothing.  Or rather, with no tent.  It isn’t a pretty sight.  And definitely not the “World’s Most Beautiful.”

If you wanna gorge yourself into oblivion or beyond that into a size 524, that’s your business. If you wanna tell me that’s the “World’s Most Beautiful” . . . excuse me while I have a good laugh.

For those who say I’m shallow because I’m attacking her for her looks, that’s not the case here. On the contrary, I’m faulting People for doing the exact opposite: lying about her looks and promoting them as “World’s Most Beautiful.” It’s dishonest.

Next, they’ll be telling us Barack Obama deserves the Nobel Prize. Oh, wait . . . .

Debbie is a fucktard…i acctually want to kill her, stupid cunt! i srsly hate her, the shallow bitch. How dare she insult Gabourey, no matter how big she will be, she’ll ALWAYS be more beautifull that that stupid ASS-CUNT Debbie. Who, in my opinion deserves to be ASHAMED of what she has said, and should publically apologise to Gabourey, if she had any sense.Fucking ATTENTION WHORE.

soooooooo on May 2, 2010 at 4:31 am

    I have just reported your comments to the site owner.

    Worry01 on May 2, 2010 at 8:16 am

      Debbie Schlussel is an stupid, ugly bitch just trying to get attention.

      DebbieSchlusselIsUgly on May 2, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    Whether you agree or disagree with what was said about the overweight actress, this is an example of People magazine giving in to political correctness. There’s a right and wrong way to respond in a debate, but ‘soooooooo’ gave the classic liberal response, attack the person you disagree with personally. It’s obvious it was done through emotion with no thought to what was said or the implied threat to Debbie’s life. The targets of the article were Hollywood hypocrisy and People magazine.

    gerob on May 2, 2010 at 11:09 am

      And it’s a classic response on this site to respond to anything you disagree with by saying “typical liberal fill-in-the-blank.” Way to oversimplify.

      That being said, sooooooooo, I think your mother would be very upset if she knew you were using her computer.

      hellcat on May 3, 2010 at 9:51 am

World’s Most Beautiful. They actually said she is the World’s Most Beautiful. They actually put these three words in order, WORLD’S + MOST + BEAUTIFUL and came up with Gabourey Sidibe. Holy Sh*t if this didn’t have you ROTLYAO then I don’t know what would make you laugh. Hey I remember in middle school all the kids got this mildly autistic kid to believe he should be school president. He actually won, we all laughed and thought it was hilarious. The Principal saw it as a cruel joke and disregarded the election. Poor kid believed he was capable. Yeah People Magazine played a cruel joke on Gabourey Sidibe. That pose she took is supposed to make me feel seduced or something? LMAO!! Hey she will walk around with this inflated ego of WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL. When she goes around the Hollywood scene, the real hot looking girls will laugh when someone mentions the People Magazine article. They aren’t laughing with you, they are laughing at you.

CaliforniaScreaming on May 2, 2010 at 11:21 am

I think it’s sad and disgusting when people like you, Debbie exist in this world. Why would you even take the time to write something so petty is beyond me, I myself can’t believe I just read this shit. We actually have real critical issues going on in this world. Who cares if Gabby is over weight! I think she’s beautiful and she has something even more important than outer beauty she has inner beauty, which is a quality you obviously do not obtain. I’m also against obesity especially in children but I don’t go around degraded them just because I’m thin and automatically assume I’m better than them because I’m not and guess what Debbie you’re not as well, so here’s some advice GROW THE FUCK UP!!!
Oh by the way you’re also pretty fucking ugly on the outside! Have a nice day.

Lissa on May 2, 2010 at 11:31 am

    If you feel that way about Debbie taking the time to write her article, why did you take the time to even respond to it? Hypocrite.

    Joe on May 2, 2010 at 10:05 pm

      Yeah you’re a little too late, if u actually read my comment u would of noticed that I already made fun of myself about it. Shit like this pisses me off enough to respond, I’m sick of people’s obsession with “beauty” in this society. People who don’t say anything to defend people like Gabby, are just as sick and demented as Debbie. By the way It’s taking the time to READ her article not write.

      Lissa on May 3, 2010 at 10:30 am

Obesity is sometimes considered a sign of psychological disturbance. While certainly not true of all obese people, it is clearly disproportinately true. The comments for this post clearly reflect this; maybe I’m naive but I would never have suspected that this, of all posts would set a record for vitriol.

Little Al on May 2, 2010 at 11:53 am

Before you judge someone on their physical attributes, look in the mirror and dissect yourself.
Obviously you are very insecure with yourself.
To be honest, I doubt you’ll ever be on any list! You need a new stylist, make up artist, & hair stylist… you need Heidi Montag’s plastic surgeon that’s what you need! “The Most Bitter Non Important People in the World” – you’d be number 1 on that list!

Ron on May 2, 2010 at 1:30 pm

What I’m still stuck on is the fact that beautiful could mean many things. I mean, they never put Gabby on the most hottest body list. They could be calling her beautiful because of the person that she is and because of her personality. I don’t think insulting Gabby like this was necessary, but if that’s what makes you feel better, then so be it.

Bri on May 2, 2010 at 1:41 pm

they should nominate this lowlife blogger as worlds most pitiful loser with a website:P

jazz on May 2, 2010 at 2:15 pm

Umm, is an interesting article to read, the problem here is balance in my opinion, it doesn’t really matter how “beautiful on the inside” you are if you have that much overweight, however, to belive that a size 0 girl is healthy and the emblem of beaty is also very wrong.

Even thou the article is a little harsh it makes a point, fat and sensitive (considering that the actrees actually is) is not beautiful, for someone or something to be considered beautiful balance must exist, pretty and shallow, is just pretty and shallow, is not beautiful, fat and deep, is just fat and deep, is not beautiful either.

The other problem here is the nerve of publishing something like this in a country that is the number 1 country in obessity, I mean they are practically telling that being incredibly fat is okay “as long as you are pretty on the inside”.

Well, that is just my opinion of course, feel free to tear my comment to pieces.

Chris on May 2, 2010 at 2:18 pm

Well, nothing like a topic like this to get peeps all agro. I feel the same about this issue as I feel people (secretly) feel about gays…they critize it because they feel fat peeps are disgusting to look at. Some are, some are not…I’m going with character. Oh, and I don’t buy that HS about caring about another one’s health…in this day and age it’s hard to get someone to care what you are saying, never mind REALLY caring about your health.

That being said, Howard Stern, no matter how mean he is (if you think he is)is absolutely correct. Gabourey will NOT be getting a lot of jobs…the same peeps that celebrate her will fail to give her work because of her size.

Look at how they are dealing with Kelly Osbourne. Same crappy personality, but everyone is falling all over themselves ‘cuz she lost a lot of weight. I’d rather witness a personality makeover!

I care about CHARACTER but I am also not blind to concrete facts. I hope this actress loses weight to physically feel better if that is what she wants…and get jobs if that is what she wants. The tragedy is that she’ll fall for the false glory right now, but will never, ever get a job in Hollywood because those peeps are superficial, plastcic and phony!!!

There. I said my peace and didn’t have to use angry emotional swears and invective!

Skunky on May 2, 2010 at 2:32 pm

your point is right…but your kinda harsh with your words. what if she read this blog she would probably be depress for days

deb on May 2, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    wrong deb, she wont read this blog because fried is not in the web address or its not linked to any food web sites.

    lol

    papi jones on May 2, 2010 at 3:39 pm

Way to take a look at inner beauty.

Zyana on May 2, 2010 at 3:26 pm

Debbie looks like she shops at Torrid as well. Sorta like the pot calling the kettle fat.

Cathy on May 2, 2010 at 4:47 pm

You are an faggot.

YO WHAT IT DO MAN YA BOY JOEY FROM JERSEY CITY IN THE HOUSE on May 2, 2010 at 5:29 pm

You, my dear lady, are amazing. The only way fat people will want to be healthy and thin is if society ostracizes them.

Jeremy on May 2, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    Okay, when has ostracizing someone ever worked, in the history of the world?

    Seriously, have some common sense.

    Rayjay101 on May 2, 2010 at 7:37 pm

I’m confused…lol why is a fat chick hating on another fat chick…I guess I could understand more if debbie was a size one but she obviously isn’t. And why would you even care about what “people magazine” has to say about beautiful people, if you don’t agree with who they pick then GET OVER IT. They sure as hell aren’t going to pick debbie cause she’s fat,obese,and ugly herself. Btw people magazine didn’t put her in there because of the way she looks on the outside, they put her there because of what kind of a person she is on the inside even though on her outside she is in alot of ways not beautiful. Think about that one.

Edward on May 2, 2010 at 7:14 pm

Oh my fucking god.

Debbie is such a fucking retard. I really hope she dies. WHY THE FUCK DO YOU INCLUDE DUMBASS POLITICAL COMMENTS INTO EVERY SINGLE FUCKING THING IN THIS PLANET??!?

Rayjay101 on May 2, 2010 at 7:34 pm

Wow. This young woman is fat. And because she is fat, Schlussel must go off on her to a cruel and vicious extreme. Then I look at Schlussel’s picture, her over-made-up glam shot, and I realize: probably no one ever told Schlussel she was beautiful when she was growing up, and she can’t handle it.

This piece speaks volumes about Schlussel. None of it good.

Dolly on May 2, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    Do you actually read what people write, or simply go off in a tantrum. What Debbie is putting forward is perfectly legitimate as a topic. Is it really appropriate for People Magazine to exploit a morbidly obese woman simply to sell magazines? Is it not on a par with calling a quadruple amputee Olympics material? It is mockery. Also, many young people suffer from varying levels of obesity as President Obama and his wife Michelle have noted. Are they also making fun of Gabby? She is not simply someone with a few extra pounds on her frame, but probably close to 200 lbs. Is this person an example to be followed? When Gabby contracts diabetes, or has a stroke or heart attack at forty, will your words seem compassionate?

    Worry01 on May 3, 2010 at 4:30 am

Is Gabby reaching for a Big Mac?

brah on May 2, 2010 at 9:28 pm

People magazine should never have put this girl into the position that they have. It’s not fair to her, nor is it even remotely honest. If they so wanted to give her an award, they should have done so in a different way. That’s just common sense people. Don’t you realize that this girl isn’t being helped by being lied to? They are setting her up for a very big fall, and that’s unfortunate, especially if she is as nice of a person as some of you are surmising.

If you search for tenderness
It isn’t hard to find
You can have the love you need to live
But if you look for truthfulness
You might just as well be blind
It always seems to be so hard to give

CHORUS
Honesty is such a lonely word
Everyone is so untrue
Honesty is hardly ever heard
And mostly what I need from you

I can always find someone
To say they sympathize
If I wear my heart out on my sleeve
But I don’t want some pretty face
To tell me pretty lies
All I want is someone to believe

CHORUS

I can find a lover
I can find a friend
I can have security
Until the bitter end
Anyone can comfort me
With promises again
I know, I know

When I’m deep inside of me
Don’t be too concerned
I won’t ask for nothin’ while I’m gone
But when I want sincerity
Tell me where else can I turn
Because you’re the one that I depend upon

Joe on May 2, 2010 at 10:00 pm

All the folks posting here in defense of Gab S. comparing her weight problem to alcocholism and such because she can’t control her situation: if People Mag had voted a pediphile “most kid friendly” or an alcoholic as “the most social” would you say the same? Since when do we reward irresposibility and lack of self control? (now there’s a rhetorical question – welfare anyone?) This is just plain stupid, and goes beyond not beautifull or un-attractive, (nonwhistanding her personality) she’s obese and a bit on the homely side, no two ways around it. Ain’t no amount of PC lies, BS and excuses gonna change that, and besides, People Mag sucks anyways, so who cares?!
Plus, I’ve known many black women who were overweight and they’d wipe the floor with her “beauty”. Let’s just be honest here, OK? Blubber only looks good on whales and polar bears.

theShadow on May 3, 2010 at 12:02 am

Some people here need to get a clue. When has People’s Most Beautiful People issue ever been about “inner beauty”? Seriously? This is such a clumsy, ham-fisted attempt at political correctness(heh- heh, ham)that I can’t believe anyone takes it seriously. Especially you freaks that are all worked up over this. You look like fools. I say that YOU are the ones trying to make yourself feel better. “oh, look at me. I’m so feeling and kind. I can see the inner beauty in this otherwise unattractive woman.” YOU AREN’T FOOLING ANYONE

Biff on May 3, 2010 at 12:52 am

You are shallow. Making fun of fat people is immature, petty and it makes you look stupid. Are you stuck in middle school? Grow up. I used to be overweight, lost the weight a few years ago. Struggling with being overweight is so hard. Ignorant people like you just made it harder. I thought you were a conservative blog so I checked you out. I now realize you are just an immature bully.

emily on May 3, 2010 at 2:10 am

    Rather than complain to Debbie, you should address your comments to People Magazine. They apparently find people who are morbidly obese amusing and worthy of the most vile mockery. Are burn victims sexy? People Magazine will tell you why. This magazine cover is on a par with that. Debbie is actually showing more compassion than you in telling people who are dangerously overweight that they have a problem. By the way, if you did not think that you had a problem, why did did you lose the weight? As for being like a middle schooler, your response pretty much fits that category.

    Worry01 on May 3, 2010 at 4:37 am

      Debbie said this young lady is disgusting. She said she is gross to look at. That is immature, there is no intellect or anything thoughtful in this attack on Gabourey. There is no compassion in telling people they are gross. I treat people like they are humans with feelings, thank God most people do. I lost weight because I finally decided it was time. I did it for myself. I had friends that supported me, no mockery or judgement involved. Debbie’s childish judgement towards the overweight isn’t helpful. It is just gross and disgusting. Overweight people know the risks, know the judgement, they know they aren’t the worlds most beautiful. Childish mockery isn’t needed.

      emily on May 3, 2010 at 6:03 pm

Debbie, it’s one of my 1st time I read your articles. You’re ehm.. A bit famous around USA and well I got interested in what you write. (I come from QC.. We hear about you from pretty far. LOL!) It’s maybe a bit awkward, but I can’t help but laugh at what you wrote up there! Not because it’s mean or because you’re a bitch no, just because your writing style is IRONIC. People doesn’t seem to get that very well… Guys & girls, Debbie doesn’t really want to MAKE FUN of Sibide but to make us realize that magazines like People is creating illusions to make Sibide feel accepted in our society. Problem is, it’s not realistic, it’s not fair and it’s not what it’s supposed to be.

Creating false dreams & hope is rather disgusting. More then criticizing Sibide. The only bad point in the article is that Debbie’s opinion is a bit too critical and negative. I know, she’s being honest and everything BUT, Debbie, there’s ways to write, ways to make people understand what you mean without swearing and writing mean and obscene things like that.

But, in the end, I understand your point. Your article is ironic, funny, mean and honest. Really mean, but honest. Next time, just use a bit of tact. Maybe then, people won’t try to kill you hahaha!

(Hey, I’m 16 by the way.. Not all that bad for a little kid!)

Justin on May 3, 2010 at 2:49 am

I totally get the message about hypocrisy. My mother was rather large as well but was the most beautiful woman I have ever known. She taught me “Beauty is as beauty does” but society can be quite cruel in spite of inner beauty. Quite interesting to see how people related to her, a lot saw it. I have been called beautiful, sexy, etc. and have been objected almost all of my adult life by others who cannot see past outward appearances into the depth of a person. Quite ironic how appearances are judged in society.

CJ on May 3, 2010 at 11:16 am

Correction – objectified

CJ on May 3, 2010 at 11:17 am

I gotta hand it to you Debbie, I’m pretty sure you don’t even agree totally with what you wrote, but you’ve succeeded in creating controversy. And that is awesome. Your celebrity status just went up several notches, I mean I never knew who you were until I heard about this article. I mean, at least, I HOPE you don’t totally agree with what you wrote. Because if that’s the case… it’s a little sad. As far as attractiveness Gabby’s got you beat. She’s got a beautiful smile that makes your expressionless botoxian butt lips look… well I think my own offensive comments there are on the spot. Plus go get a mirror, Debbie. Look at that girl, is it me or does she look like Rachel Dratch’s prom-dumpster baby? Still not insulting enough? Am I still not going to hell for that one? How about you have chin cleavage. I don’t know if Gabby really deserves to be on that list. But she’s more deserving than you. You see, People mag was going for the “inner beauty” slant, which you never once addressed in your article. If you were to physically represent YOUR own inner beauty, I’m betting it would look like something from a low budget 80’s gory horror movie.

Michael on May 3, 2010 at 4:10 pm

George Santayana once said “Beauty is a pledge of the possible conformity between the soul and nature, and consequently a ground of faith in the supremacy of the good.”

Debbie, you cause me to question the supremacy of good.

Harry Tuttle, Air Conditioner Repair-man on May 3, 2010 at 6:11 pm

I have a few questions for all the women on here who are so passionately sticking up for Gabby’s “inner beauty” – how many fat men have you dated? How many fat men have you slept with?

Have you ever even flirted with a fat man or bought one a drink while out at a bar?

I didn’t think so…

Greg on May 3, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    I may never have dated an overweight man, but I certainly don’t call them disgusting and gross. I think people should be treated with respect.

    Emily on May 3, 2010 at 10:10 pm

if she was a 3-400 lb white male, there is no way in the world he would make the list.. morbidly disingenuous

mcmaggot on May 4, 2010 at 1:48 am

I don’t know if Gabourey Sidibe is one of the world’s most beautiful people ––

––– but I DO know that she’s more beautiful than Debbie Schlußel… inside AND out.

jasperjava on May 4, 2010 at 1:48 am

News at 11: Racist sow disapproves of celebrity magazine! Glad to see that Debbie Schleuscheal is covering the important topics By the way, we all know Debs does not look like her picture up there. That’s an expensive, professional glamour shot and it still only makes her look like a whore with poor bilateral symmetry, and certainly not attractive enough to be anywhere near the bottom of a list of beautiful people.

Johnny Coelacanth on May 4, 2010 at 1:56 am

Debbie thank you for not being a liberal and lying to yourself. Its nice to see that some people still think honesty is a virtue.

Michael on May 4, 2010 at 2:41 am

what a joke. PC hollywood windbags and Op-rats ramming untalented hacks down our throats and turn them into “icons” somehow….what a joke. Put someone aesthetically hot on the list. For godsakes, they put “Precious” on the list. I mean, Precious was okay in “The Blind Side”, but she doesn’t belong in the same sentence as “most beautiful people”….I don’t recall Chris Farley ever making the list. I don’t recall Wendy Jo Sperber or Natalie from facts of life making the list. Just cause she’s a hood rat and People is trying to be all PC, that’s the only reason…..complete joke….

Jeff on May 4, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    According to Wikipedia, People magazine is owned by Time-Warner. The CEO worked for Nelson rockefeller and Time gave the Maximum donation $250,000 To George Bush.

    Jim on May 6, 2010 at 2:20 am

It’s that damn Darwin again! I know that God intended every one to be thin and constantly dieting like Deb but those stupid bipedal omnivores keep out breeding his chosen.

R Yinger on May 5, 2010 at 11:24 am

What’s worse: that she’s a negress or that she’s fat? Either way: utterly sickening.

Arlo on May 5, 2010 at 11:24 am

    Not nearly as sickening as your racist comment.

    Emily's Dad on May 6, 2010 at 2:16 pm

      Just thought I’d say what Deb was probably thinking. Thought she’d delete it. Probably will now.

      Not Really Called Arlo on May 26, 2010 at 12:57 pm

Why are Fugly/Fat women always ragging on other women? I mean the author of this blog managed to be ugly in a professional glamour shot.

Shan on May 5, 2010 at 6:27 pm

Dumb typical blonde bitch who thinks her little bubble of a world is the only right one! I’m sure debbie’s mama taught her better than that.

Debbie Daddy on May 5, 2010 at 9:16 pm

You are a horrid person.

You probably have not gone outside without having a team of makeup artists work on you for at least half a decade and the picture you put of yourself as a banner is blatantly photoshopped.

Who is kidding who here?

Um Yeah on May 6, 2010 at 1:45 am

Obesity is sometimes considered a sign of psychological disturbance. While certainly not true of all obese people, it is clearly disproportinately true. The comments for this post clearly reflect this; maybe I’m naive but I would never have suspected that this, of all posts would set a record for vitriol.

islamicnet on May 6, 2010 at 7:48 am

It is so beautiful–to describe beauty–based only on outward physical characteristics. Ms Schlussel realizes that beauty is only skin deep, the inner soul and character mean nothing.

kharma on May 6, 2010 at 8:12 am

You are a horrible, horrible human being.

Wow on May 6, 2010 at 8:28 am

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Thinking people everywhere know this.

njgeoffery on May 6, 2010 at 8:36 am

I too believe that People is being disingenuous at best in putting GS on their Most Beautiful People list. Regardless of her attitude or personality, I do not find her to be in line with my personal opinon of what cosntitutes “beauty”. That said…

What shocks me is the INCREDIBLY vicious reaction by Ms. Schlussel. Its one thing to disagree, it’s quite another to be so nasty. Why is she attacking Ms. Sibide for doing her job (showing up at a photo shoot in order to keep your face in the news and hopefully prompt more job offers)?

The ugliness here is not evident in GS, but the author of this vitriolic screed. You, Ms. Schlussel are a waste of skin.

AnnaN on May 6, 2010 at 11:07 am

It’s one thing to offer a critical commmentary on political correctness run amok, but was it really necessary to refer to this young woman as “gross,” “disgusting looking” and a “humongazoid”? I’m pretty sure that Ms. Sibide didn’t lobby to be selected as one of the “World’s Most Beautiful People,” but even if she had, you could have just as easily made your point without tearing the poor girl to pieces. There’s legitimate criticism, and then there’s gratuitous cruelty. This column is a particularly vicious example of the latter.

You’ve crossed the line here, Ms. Schlussel. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Emily's Dad on May 6, 2010 at 2:10 pm

Wow. Nasty doesn’t begin to cover your attitude. You know, it’s possible to lose fat, but an ugly soul is something you’re stuck with for life.

Nan on May 6, 2010 at 5:19 pm

It’s not that don’t think she is good-looking. It’s just, being obese is so unhealthy. I don’t care how pretty it is, it’s unhealthy. I think health and beauty should both be important. If it’s detrimental, it’s not gorgeous.

cc on May 6, 2010 at 7:29 pm

Yeah, you’re right Debbie. I am just so tired of People magazine thrusting plus size models down my throat. Really, can we have some diversity, please? (Insert sarcastic tone.)

Wow. What a hater. That is exactly why the Left sees the Right as a bunch of haters…because of people like you, blogging their hate-filled, vapid social critiques. Hate begets hate.

It’s one thing to question our media, the status quo and society at large. I am all for critiquing our modern cultural trends. But do it with some grace for crying out loud. You can make your point without calling this poor girl and anyone like her “disgusting.”

An educated attorney such as yourself ought to be able to think up some more delicate, poignant and articulate arguments without resorting to such mean-hearted, petty, playground insults.

And if you’re aiming your criticism at People, why insult the poor young girl personally? I don’t think anyone is under any illusions that overweight people are considered glamorous and radically liberated from shame, or embraced by our society as sex symbols. This was simply an attempt (albeit obviously self-congratulatory and transparent) on People Magazine to redeem themselves just a little for the homogeny they usually feature.

Has anyone posted a picture of what this chubby bitch actually looks like? Because I feel like someone should post a picture of what this chubby bitch actually looks like.

I will never pick up nor glance at a People magazine ever again. Not only are they bold-faced liars on this issue, they are promoting disgustingly super-morbidly obese ugly bitches in an already fat-assed nation. They were obviously attempting to be PC, but they accomplished exactly the opposite.
