A recent online article caught my attention, about a young rapper/comedienne who posted a video mocking obese people. Her “Dear Fat People” video is a vulgar and hateful taunt against people who weren’t endowed with slim bodies like hers.
These kinds of attacks on regular folk by people of privilege are becoming too commonplace, and irk me to no end. Especially when these people have gotten to where they are because of fans many of whom may be the same people they’re mocking. When did being humble and grateful for one’s blessings in life give way to cocky, rude, and tactless bragging and tasteless ridicule? I have a few thoughts on this.
