Last week a twitter user posted a chart that they saw on morning television. The show was running a special on large-sized women and classified two types: “OK Chubby” and “NG Chubby” (No Good Chubby). Once put online many overweight twitterers found the show’s infographic both a little controversial and a little sad.
Since we cannot reprint it due to copyright, here’s a translated recreation of the original infographic.
Many Twitter users despondently responded saying “I’m an NG Fattie!” while only a few could proudly proclaim “Yay! I’m OK chubby! I win!” Most others took issue with the fact that this program seemed to take neither health nor the person’s character into account when deciding what is OK and what is not.
“Personally, I think both are NG Fatties,” was the sentiment of the original poster which was retweeted thousands of times. Others added to it asking, “The OK chubby seems kind of like a jerk…”
Some “NG Chubbies” called BS saying that any woman with the time to be a big eater would use it to try and lose weight. Another went as far as saying, “I don’t think so. Even OK Chubbies know in the end, everyone is attracted to a thin woman. It’s just the way it goes, isn’t it?”
