Passengers handed fat-shaming business cards on London Underground
BY: TROY FRISBY
Passengers on the London Underground are being harassed by a group calling itself "Overweight Haters Limited."
They've been passing out fat-shaming business cards to passengers on the Tube. The cards state the organization "hates and resents fat people" and alleges "it's really not glandular, it's your gluttony."
"We also object that the beautiful pig is used as an insult," the card continues. "You are not a pig. You are a fat, ugly human."
A woman tweeted after she was handed the card on the Tube. She called it "hateful + cowardly" and noted the words "could potentially upset people struggling with confidence."
The British Transport Police tweeted, "We're continuing to investigate the 'fat shaming' leaflets handed out yesterday."
In a statement, they also noted, "Everyone has the right to travel on the rail network without fear or intimidation."

And they're not the only ones on high alert. A company called navabi Fashion realized the organization hadn't registered the overweighthaters.com domain.
So they decided to take it for themselves and "do something nice with it instead," by printing out business cards that read "You look great!" instead.
For added encouragement, on the site, they wrote, "Go out & spread some joy. Make someone's day. Life really is too short. Go out & be positive."
One Twitter user said she's "signing up for #BigotDetestersLtd - the antidote to #OverweightHatersLtd."
And another pointed out a major "spell check fail." Overweight Haters Limited may have misspelled "beautiful," but it's clear they don't know what it means, either.
