Has everyone heard already about the Marie Claire blogger fiasco? Their "dating" blogger Maura Kelly (no idea who she is) posted a diatribe against fat people on TV, including the gem that she can't stand to see a heavy person walk across a room, much less make out with someone. Nice eh? Well, 2400 comments, one non-apology, and countless news stories later, the shit storm shows no signs of abating.
If you enjoy watching a train wreck, her post, apology, and comments are here: http://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/dating-blog/overweight-couples-on-television
Just google any of those words to see all the coverage of it. Marie Claire said they got 20,000 emails in the day following, many canceling their subscriptions.
What amazes me most is how vapid this blogger is, and how poor a writer (to wit, she uses heroine when she means heroin, to hilarious effect). A more recent entry has her going on about how she made herself read a Jane Austen novel, in spite of knowing Austen is over-rated, and how it wasn't that bad after all. She also graced the internetz with a few "insights" about the book. OMFG! How did she even graduate from high school?? Sadly some of the commenters take her side, but most blast her with far more IQ points than she displays.
So yeah, I wasn't insulted by her post, because I find her unintentionally hilarious. However if anti-overweight harangues are triggering to you, don't read...
