Please take a moment to sign the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC)'s petition to ask iTunes, Apple, Google, Microsoft, etc. to remove fat shaming apps like Fatify, Fat Booth, Fat You! and others.
For more information and TO SIGN THE PETITION
Obesity is not a laughing matter. It is a disease. One that killed my father, and one that nearly killed me. There is nothing funny about it.
It hurts my heart to think of the kids that will be made fun of or taunted with crap like this. Studies (via CDC) show weight is likely the leading cause of bullying and one study even showed that nearly 20% of girls who faced weight bullying attempted (not thought about, ATTEMPTED) suicide. Time to put our foot down and nail stuff like this when we see it.
Thank you for adding your name to the PETITION and for SHARING this petition on your social media accounts. Take a further step and use this easy form to send letters to the CEO's of the above companies.
