Update: New Craigslist Posting Claims The Fat Woman On The Boston T Was A Bully

The saga of the fat woman on the Boston T line rages onward. Now, someone has written a new Craigslist missed connection post claiming that the woman herself is the bully, because she allegedly sat on a “kind, older woman” and the original douchebag target, effectively pinning them both down.

Here’s the new Craigslist posting, after the jump: Keep reading »

Craigslist Missed Connection Takes Down Fat-Shaming Subway Douchebag

UPDATE, Friday 4p.m.:  There’s an update to this post here!

The world would feel like a more just place if we could (literally or figuratively) beat up every bully in the schoolyard. We can’t do that. But we can take to Craiglist’s Missed Connections to call out sociopathic, sadistic fat shamers who tell random strangers to “lose some weight” on the Boston subway.

Take, for instance, this incredible Missed Connection addressed to “the shitstain who made a woman cry on the T — 30 (Stony Book T Station)”: Keep reading »

Abercrombie & Fitch’s Jerk Of A CEO Has Lost His Chairman Title

Abercrombie & Fitch's Jerk Of A CEO Has Lost His Chairman Title

Mike Jeffries, CEO and chairman of Abercrombie & Fitch, lost his chairman title this week. The guy is a super-douche who made it known that he only wants cool kids to shop at his store. It seems that shareholders are fed up with that attitude, because it’s no longer selling. The new chairman will be Arthur Martinez, who has helmed both Sears and the Federal Reserve of Chicago. Abercrombie is also adding two new directors to the board, which points to a possible shift in direction for the company. Jeffries remains CEO and a board member. Keep reading »

  • Here’s Kelly Clarkson in Parade on why she’s excited to be pregnant: “Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can’t wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!” What a depressing state of affairs that female celebs actually think this way (even if she’s joking). [Parade]

fargo woman gives halloween letters to fat trick or treaters

Rudeness, not fun-size Skittles, is how one Fargo, North Dakota, lady is celebrating this Halloween.

Yesterday an anonymous woman announced during a radio show call-in her intention to withhold candy for trick-or-treaters if she deems them too pudgy through their Dora The Explorer and Wreck-It Ralph costumes.

The woman told a Y-94  program yesterday:

“I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight… I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it.”

Naturally, she will help the fat kids by handing out finger-wagging letters intended for their incompetent parents.   Keep reading »

Awful Boyfriend Bribes Woman To Lose Weight With A Wedding Ring

Awful Boyfriend Bribes Woman To Lose Weight With A Wedding Ring On "Katie"
He Promised Her A Ring If She Got Down To 140 Pounds

In an upcoming episode of “Katie,” formerly plus-sized women get sweet revenge on the people who fat-shamed them. In this clip, single gal Jennifer Tippie talks about the ex-boyfriend who told her that if she got down to 140 pounds, he would put a ring on her finger because, ya know, he really wanted to be with someone who was “proportionate to him.” Oh, men who tell women to lose weight are always such PRINCES, aren’t they? Especially when they offer marriage as the motivation. It’s hard to imagine turning such an appealing offer down, but Jennifer did. She lost the weight on her own and now she will flaunt her “revenge body” in her ex’s face.

If a man has ever even suggested that you lose weight in order to date him — or change anything about your appearance — now’s the time to publicly shame him in our comment section. Have at it.

“Sleepless In Austin” Single Dude Romeo Rose Shares His Racism, Nuttery On HuffPost Live (NSFW)

Romeo Rose Speaks

This HuffPost Live interview with Romeo Rose —the guy behind “Sleepless In Austin,” a blog offering money to someone who can introduce him to a woman who fits his absurd list of racist, slut-shaming requirements — doesn’t just have me wondering why this one person is sucking up so much media attention with his opinions on why he doesn’t want “a fat woman” and “the skin color of black is not pretty.” I’m also starting to feel uncomfortable that there’s actually something wrong with him … like Kony 2012 Jason Russell naked-public-meltdown wrong with him. I’m not totally sure Romeo Rose, vile and offensive as he is, is self-aware enough to realize he’s the joke here.  He seems utterly sincere in this interview — which, by the way, is filled with racist, offensive shit towards the end and NSFW — in a way that’s, frankly, sad. Watching this trainwreck is starting to feel Hugo Schwyzer-esque.  The interviewer, Caitlyn Becker, composed herself pretty well during this, but I’m inclined to think Romeo Rose’s next conversation should be with some good doctors.  [Huffington Post]

Gee, I Wonder Why The Man Behind “Sleepless In Austin” Is Still Single

larry busby sleepless in austin

I am desperately hoping Sleepless In Austin — allegedly the work of a photographer named Larry Busby who goes by the name Romeo Rose — is a prank.

But given that he’s offered $1,500 as a “finder’s fee” for the person who finds him a girlfriend and an extra $1,000 if it leads to marriage, this miiiight be serious.

Now, we could all use a little extra scratch. Shouldn’t be so hard to find some bro in Austin a lady, right? Well, let’s take a look at Larry Busby’s dating requirements! Keep reading »
