Must not imply that fat is sad or bad

With its colourful animated characters personifying the different emotions inside a young girl's brain, it's one of the biggest movie box-office hits this year.

But although Inside Out has enthralled youngsters, the latest film from Toy Story maker Pixar stands accused of causing psychological damage by depicting Sadness as a fat child.

The film focuses on 11-year-old Riley and her feelings as she moves home with her parents.

Her emotions – also including Anger, Fear, Disgust and Joy – are portrayed as characters in the film, which has won critical acclaim in the US and opens in the UK later this month.

But parents have raised concerns over Sadness, voiced by actress Phyllis Smith, being depicted as a frumpy fat girl while Joy, played by Amy Poehler, is slim and fashionable.

Parents have taken to online forums, with one writing: 'Thin, tall and pretty is Joy! Indoctrinate your children.'

Maybe they just made the characters to resemble the actress voicing it!

Not a problem with anger being represented by a male though.
