Honestly, I’m so ticked off right now that I have no idea where to start. I came across a story today about three women who went out to eat, but left the restaurant completely insulted. Check out the first link to find out why!
Could you imagine going to your favorite restaurant and reading “Fat People” or “Stupid Blonde” or “Ghetto Black Girl” displayed on the top of your receipt? No, those statements aren’t referring to the latest reality shows. Ladies and gentlemen, that’s your server talking about YOU. Now, I think the server in this case is all kinds of wrong and definitely doesn’t care about his job or the company he works for, but what really had my blood boiling was one of the YouTube video responses I came across. Now, check out the following link and the viewer responses.
Wow! Now I realize that people are entitled to their own opinion and I respect that, but I think you have to have some self-control. Just a little bit of heart. It’s very scary considering how much support TNNReboot and other supporters with similar opinions have gotten in regards to this topic. It’s as if these people are ANGRY and OUTRAGED at people who are obese and don’t seem to question why these people are that way. HOW DARE YOU EAT THAT HAMBURGER!!!!!! It’s like forget the fact that someone has an eating disorder, medical condition, or wants to lose weight, but is struggling just like many of us. These comments are frightening in that people feel they can not only say how they feel about another person’s weight issue, but they also have the right to be “abusive.” Kids are bullied and physically hurt on a daily basis over their weight and they learn from what they see and hear from sources like this and whatever else is out there. What’s got these people so angry about someone else’s life that they have to be complete jerks? If only losing weight was that easy, right? Besides, it’s not as if thinner people are superior to those who are not. Let’s love one another, People!
Again, I think this guy is entitled to his opinion and I’m not rioting to take him off the tube, but I think he crosses the line by referring to them as “Fat B@*&ches” and “whores.” That’s just a bit much and beyond the scope of the original story. I imagine this guy saying these things to their faces and feeling okay about that. In a sense, if they were to view this video, it would be the same. How awful would that be to not only get insulted by your server, but to also be called a fat B to your face simply because you ordered two cokes, a sprite, and three entrees? It’s as if these women are being attacked and that to me is straight up bullying. There is a lack of respect and sensitivity to the fact that one of the ladies has been deeply hurt by the incident and started to cry during the interview. It’s possible that this could be a breaking point for her and maybe she will decide to lose weight because of this situation, but she’ll never forget that pain. My hope is that she will come out of this stronger and healthier. I hope that for all of them. But that still won’t change the fact that some people are just complete insensitive jerks and will find someone else to pick on.
This guy continues to say in the rolling credits that we “shouldn’t feel bad for fat people” and that “these fat people were out of line…PERIOD.” Maybe these comments are purely for ratings, but how desperate is that? Seriously, chill out!
