Must not say fatties are unhealthy

The disgruntled fatty. Fat is clearly not her only problem

Katie Hopkins has been shopped to the police for hate crimes against overweight people. The controversial TV star was reported by a woman belonging to a 'fat activist' group during filming for her new programme on TLC, in which she gains and loses three stone in six months.

Katie was accused of the crime when she met up with the group of five women in London who all work independently as plus-size activists or diet bloggers, so that she could hear opposing views on her claims that 'fat people are lazy'.

Ms Szrodecki began to get upset after Katie questioned how she could be healthy because of the weight she was carrying.

The former Apprentice contestant told her: 'I’m looking at you and I’m making an assessment that it is not healthy to carry that much weight on your knees.'

Katie then turns her attention to another member of the group and asks her: 'Can I ask you something? And you, and you can answer it honestly, or not answer it at all, is why are you big?'

The woman replies: 'Because I eat too much.'

Ms Szrodecki then interjects and says to Katie: 'Do you not realise where you’re going with this? This is actually to do with a hate crime.'

Katie then laughs and replies: 'You’re a victim of hate crime?'

Ms Szrodecki says: 'Absolutely. And can we call the police?'

Katie then tells her: 'Do call the police, there’s a telephone right there, feel free.

'Would you like it brought to you? Because it’s probably going to be hard to walk there.'

Fat is NOT always a matter of "calories in, calories out" although that IS the general rule.

Nor is fat in and of itself always unhealthy, although most heavy people suffer from weight-related ailments as a result of the dietary choices they make and the sedentary lifestyle they live.

However, in MOST people, weight can be controlled, unlike racial heritage. Making them a "protected" subclass of the population is ludicrous, as people would move into and out of protection as their body masses wax and wane.

Let's face it - most people don't want to be blamed for their "bad choices" so they find some external or "medical" excuse or just blame others for being mean and hateful towards them (and that includes most "fat folks").
