Must not call a fat broad fat

Apprentice boss Lord Sugar has been accused of bullying behaviour after calling a plus-size model 'fatty' on Twitter.

The multi-million pound business tycoon, 67, became embroiled in a Twitter row after sending the 'cruel' message to beauty queen Elena Raouna, 23.

The row unfolded after she sent him a cheeky message on Sunday night, which said: 'Evening sugar ;-) can I call you that? Lol.'

He replied: 'yes no problem as long as I can call you fatty,' which sparked outrage from some her 2,800 followers who branded him 'a bully', 'arrogant' and a 'miserable old goat'.

Miss Raouna, who won Miss British Beauty Curve in 2013, is now demanding an apology from the no-nonsense TV personality, who made his name founding British electronics company Amstrad.

What an abusive attitude - that somehow a person, based on their gender, wants to be referred to in familiar terms of endearment! She should apologize immediately for her misandrist attitudes and sign up for sensitivity training, after renouncing all awards she's ever won for anything!

To me, she looks like she is fat.

Almost all humans are hardwired to accumulate as much fat on our frames as possible to guard against lean times. Being fat in most early human societies (and indeed into the early 1900's) was a sign of prosperity. Today there is still a significant portion of the population that prefers obese mates due to the genetic predisposition. The plus size beauty contests cater to this segment of the population and if the winners cannot accept that they are obese they need to change their behavior.

Sugar's reply might best have been "I can't say anything to anybody because it will be misconstrued and rebranded as racist, politically incorrect, sexist, bullying and everything else negative, because that's the stupid way of the world right now."

I find it interesting how liberals never see the irony on the name calling thing.

She calls him "sugar" and he calls her fatty. But they call him all sorts of worse names for what HE said and THAT is ok.
