Is this why everyone is freaking out?
Everyone Is Freaking Out About What This Biggest Loser Trainer Said About Heavy People
After implying that morbidly obese people are inherently unhappy, AustralianBiggest Losertrainer Michelle Bridges is facing a monsoon of backlash.
"If you are happy where you are, more power to you," she said during an interview with Australia Storythat aired Monday night. But I can tell you, I'm yet to meet someone who is morbidly obese and happy."
While The Biggest Loser's creator, J.D. Roth, recently told Cosmopolitan.com that people who weigh upward of 600 pounds and end up on a weight loss show "have a level of darkness in their lives that most people just can't understand," Bridges's comment hints that peoplecan'tbe happy if they're overweight — a statement that's simply not true.
People didn't hesitate to set Bridges straight on Twitter:
If Michelle Bridges wants to meet a happy fat person I'm more than available to hang out and educate her— jocelyn (@jocelynseip) April 18, 2019
If obese people aren't happy maybe it's largely because of people like Michelle Bridges incessantly forcing public shame on them?— Alyssa Robinson (@thatsironical) April 18, 2019
It's hard not to crack a smile at former Australian Biggest Loser Ajay Rochester's response, which artfully spelled out exactly what every other pissed party on Twitter was actually thinking:
Of course it shouldn't take a butt face to prove you can be happy (and hilarious) at any weight.
