Check her letter out – she attempted to rip Alex a new one, is full response from today’s show is below!
Hi guys, my name is Lydia Mc*****n (it’s fine if you share) and I live in London. I usually catch the show on demand but I wanted to write to express my thoughts on Alex The Great and his apparent fear and rejection of fat people. Many times he’s said he doesn’t have a problem with fat he just doesn’t understand it, and I don’t think it’s funny at all. Some people may eat to get fat, but many of us struggle with the fact that we feel like someone’s always watching. Someone’s always judging. Someone is always watching our plates and portions. Just because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean it should be funny. There are many things many of us don’t understand but to laugh at someone’s misfortune or the cards they were dealt should be shameful.
Around the world, many of us are fat because of the food and restaurants your country has sent to us. I would just think you should have an open mind. You could have fat kids one day. A fat spouse. A fat friend.
Don’t shame. It’s shameful!
