I’ve just found this article – basically a woman was shamed and yelled at as she left the house to go get married, and called a fat bride by her neighbours. She spent the time before her ceremony sobbing because of it.
I’m just sad for her. Being a plus size bride myself, my biggest fear is someone saying something like that to me on the day. I just don’t get why someone would shout that at someone!
What do you think?

Many people in this world have lost all sense of decency, what a sad decline for our future.

That is sooo horrible! How dare they behave that way. I’m also a plus size bride and I tell you what if someone did that to me I’d go bridezilla on their ass!

ZebraPrintMe: they’re the ones that have to live with themselves. if someone called me fat, i’d give it to them right back.

It’s just awful that those people did that to her. I can’t imagine doing such a thing to someone, honestly. I just don’t know how they do it.
I’m glad that she realized she needed to make some changes. It’s unfortunate that it was her wedding pictures that showed her how unhealthy she was, but at least she got healthy before it was too late.

tksjewelry: There hasn’t really been a decline, we’re just hearing about incidents like these much, much more than we would have before.
The future will be fine, because there isn’t much that’s new when it comes to human behavior. Stuff like this has always happened.

Rhopalocera: Oh yeah, definitely good for her for losing all that weight! She seems so much happier now 🙂
I think what really bothers me is the comment section. Tons of people are saying that it’s okay to ‘fat-shame’ someone if it forces them to change – I think article like this just encourage people to be cruel.

Ugh. Some people need to be kicked.
Whatever your size, I’m sure your guests already know what you look like, and they accept you as you are. So does your husband-to-be. As long as you look happy, they will notice and think you’re beautiful. 🙂

It takes a special kind of scumbag to fat shame a woman on her wedding day.
It doesn’t matter if these people think she needed to lose weight, their opinions don’t matter. Neither do the commenters. If you can’t muster up a “you look great!” then keep your fucking mouth shut and worry about your own imperfections, like a piss poor personality.

ZebraPrintMe: Yeah, some people will take that message from it. That’s just how some people are, unfortunately. There’s nothing new about that, though.
I do agree with some of the comments that can’t really be described as “sympathetic”, because I think they made some good points, but, yes, many of the comments were just nonsense.

I’m guessing there’s more to this story than was told- local people just gathered around the wedding car outside her house waiting for a glimpse? Just random people on the street? I bet a lot of them were neighbors and probably didn’t like her for some unmentioned reason

yumcheez: It’s actually really common in the UK for neighbours and passersby to stand outside in the street to watch the bride come out… not sure why, seems embarassing to me, but it’s something that happens a lot.
Sounds to me like it was probably just a bunch of randomers who wanted a laugh, rather than people who knew her personally.

The way it’s written, those hecklers might read that article now and be convinced that they did her a favor or saved her life, instead of taking a look at their own actions and how they treat others.
