“Fat people are lazy and there is no excuse for obesity.”
That’s what 39-year-old British former reality TV star and tabloid columnist, Katie Hopkins, believes.
Hopkins wants so desperately to prove her point, that she deliberately put on 20 kilograms just so she could lose it publicly and show the world how ‘easy’ it is to lose weight.
AND she’s been given her own TV show to do it.
It’s called “To Fat And Back” and it follows Katie’s “journey” as she eats herself 20 kilos heavier and then aims to lose it.
Did you get that? A woman is going to put on a significant amount of weight so that she can lose it and ‘PROVE’ to the world that overweight people are lazy. It’s not just elaborate; it’s dangerous.
The whole thing feels gross, cruel and offensive. She makes no effort whatsoever to understand what it’s truly like to be overweight. She doesn’t acknowledge that being overweight or underweight can mean that someone is struggling emotionally or financially. She has approached this whole perverse experiment without a shred of empathy.
But that’s just how Katie Hopkins operates.
This woman makes a living out of offending parents, women, teenagers, obese people and any other moving target by saying things like “being a full-time mum is not a job” and “I’d rather work than be with my kids on their birthdays”.
So it’s really no surprise that she’s now going out of her way to try and ‘prove’ that fat people are lazy.
Here’s how she’s going about it.
