Kara Flourish was going along her morning routine when she was unexpectedly body-shamed after receiving a card from a stranger which called her "fat". One side of the card from the organization called Overweight Haters Ltd. simply says FAT in large lettering. The other side explains more about the organization and it's hateful beliefs. The card reads: It's really not glandular, it's your gluttony... Our organisation hates and resents fat people. We object to the enormous amount of food resources you consume while half the world starves. We approve of your wasting NHS money to treat your selfish greed. And we do not understand why you fail to grasp that y eating less you will be better off, slimmer, happy and find a partner who is not a perverted chubby-lover, or even find a partner at all. We also object that the beautiful [sic] pig is used as an insult. You are not a pig. You are a fat, ugly human.  fat shaming card london [bctt tweet="Woman Handed Body-Shaming Card On London Subway"] Kara, upon receiving the card, broke down in tears. She could not handle the hate-spewing message. "It is hateful, cowardly and could potentially upset people struggling with confidence." Kara said on Twitter. This was no isolated incident. The British Transport Police have been made aware of these cards several times, and many people have witnessed someone being handed the card and crying. The BTP are asking anyone with information about where the cards are coming from to report it immediately. What are your thoughts on these hateful cards? How can this situation be fixed?
