    How come she didn’t stay heavy and be a role model? you people are always telling fat people how beautiful they are. Why did Adele and Rebel Wilson lose the weight too? Is it maybe that you’re lying to unhealthy people to spare their feelings? Why don’t you try that with heroine addicts? Spare their feelings let them use, see how that works out. Food is an addiction too. It’s time to stop the lies.
