Woman Hands Out Letters to "Overweight" Children on Halloween Instead of Candy

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Talk about scary Halloween houses. Imagine ringing a doorbell, calling out "trick or treat," and getting fat-shamed by the neighbor.

That's happening to children in Fargo, N.D.

A woman there has taken it upon herself to be the "village" and plans to pass out letters to the parents of children she deems overweight instead giving the kids candy.

Cheryl wants "to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight."

The letter pretty much speaks for itself, but says "Your child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some this Halloween season."

Cheryl believes that by giving candy to these children, she's contributing to the childhood obesity epidemic. That, in her mind, is unconscionable.

But fat-shaming children isn't. Okay then.

Couldn't she hand out apples? Or bananas? Or pretzels? Or not letters that fat-shame children on the one day a year it's acceptable to stay up past bedtime and eat sweets?

Healthy treats instead of candy. Not fat-shaming children. Crazy idea, right?

Halloween Letter To Overweight Children

We thought Maria Kang and her fat-shaming mothers was bad, but this story might be fat-shaming at it's finest, you guys. Where finest of course means worst.
