Kara Florish from Essex, was just minding her own business while commuting to work one day when she was accosted by a stranger.
Florish, 30 was left shocked when a fellow commuter gave her a card from “Overweight Haters Ltd” that called her a “fat, ugly human.”
The card, which had the tag line: ‘It’s really not glandular, it’s your gluttony,’ read: ‘Our organisation hates and resents fat people. We object to the enormous amount of food resources you consume while half the world starves. We disapprove of your wasting NHS money to treat your selfish greed.
And we do not understand why you fail to grasp that by eating less you will be better off, slimmer, happy and find a partner who is not a perverted chubby-lover, or even find a partner at all.
We also object that the beatiful pig is used as an insult. You are not a pig. You are a fat, ugly human [sic].’
Ms Florish, who is a size 12/14, took to Facebook to share her disgust. She wrote: ‘Dear all – I was handed this card this morning on the underground and I would appreciate if people tweeted, posted etc all over the Internet.
‘I am not upset myself. I am smaller than the national average and not exactly obese, but this is hateful and cowardly and could potentially upset people struggling with confidence and eating disorders.
‘Please tweet and share this if you are also outraged. Plus – to the person who wrote this card, go back to school, you can’t spell “beautiful”.’
Ms Florish said about the fellow commuter who gave her the insulting card: ‘The man was middle aged, and a normal looking white man. He didn’t say anything, just put the card on my lap and got off the train.
‘I’ve never been skinny but don’t consider myself fat, but that’s not the point of this. Even if I was, people should not be using someone’s size to bully others.’
