A British hate group targets overweight commuters by handing out hateful cards that fat-shame them into losing weight.
The group who call themselves “Overweight Haters, Ltd.” target commuters who are overweight. The group hands out cards that read: “It’s really not glandular, it’s your gluttony.”
The card further states, “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.”
The card continues: “We also object that the (beautiful) pig is used as an insult. You are not a pig. You are a fat, ugly human.”
Young man just got on train at Oxford Circus, gave printed card saying YOU'RE FAT to overweight girl. He jumped off. She read it, & cried.

Tube riders who were given cards are being urged to notify the British Transport Police.
Kate Florish took to Twitter.com to discuss receiving one of the cards. She said it was hateful to target people with eating disorders.
“I am not upset myself,” Florish tweeted. “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.”
Another Twitter user called the group “vile humans.”
He tweeted, “For one thing, shaming someone doesn’t inspire them to lose weight.”
