YUBA CITY (CBS13) A Facebook page created to criticize people about their weight is generating controversy in the Yuba-Sutter region.
530 Fatties appears to be created by someone who lives within the local 530 area code, and featured photos of overweight or obese people in public without their permission. With those photos are words mocking the subjects weight.
The page was taken down at some point on Monday after CBS13 began looking into it after several people reached out to us.
Jessi Lynn Howell, 18, is still mortified after discovering a picture of herself posted on 530 Fatties.

But if he’d been at a baseball game in the crowd, he would’ve been fair game for the hosts to ridicule as a drunk, tubby, etc.
I loathe the doublestandard media.
I loathe social media
This is an outrage!
If, however, these people’s pics were posted at People of Walmart, then that’d be OK.
(Its a JOKE, son)
Probably created by a sanctimonious liberal.
Approved my Moochelle, as she thinks it is good to “Fat Shame” people...
It would be funny if one of the vics traced down the originator and gave them a nice trojan.
If that’s Jessica, she is very pretty. If she’s also sweet and competent at some marketable skill, she should have no problems in life.
People with nothing to do but run down others on Facebook, on the other hand ...
Honestly, if I wasn’t so vain, I’d get fat just to stick it to people who hate fat people.
The blond girl in the photo is beautiful. Very cruel to mock her weight.
Got no beef with Jessica.
Those cops, OTOH ... They can’t possibly be serving the public as they should. Physical fitness is a job requirement for a peace officer.
I agree that police officers (and military personnel) should be physically fit. That doesn’t require being ultra-marathoner skinny, but definitely able to lift, climb, and pursue on foot.
Good thing the bailiffs are armed because they sure as heck couldn’t run after anyone.
Nice to see them texting on taxpayer time as well.
Nobody should look like that at the young age of 18. She is facing a lifetime of health problems. Which BTW we will inevitably pay for.
Also, she will never be able to land a decent husband with a body resembling Jabba the Hutt, so we will also wind up paying for her mocha-colored illegitimate children.
The FB poster is probably a loser but shame is exactly what the doctor ordered here.
It’s okay to have an irrational hatred of fat people. It’s the last socially acceptable bastion of bigotry, providing the perfect release for social ignorance.
It's perfectly acceptable to hate white, Christian men with a blazing fury that only demons could inspire.
Warm in the winter,
Shady in the summertime...

While I don’t agree with doing this people in public have no expectation of privacy.
Never? I have known some obese females who married and stayed married. They work. Their husbands work. I am not so sure about obese males staying in happy, long term relationships.
The other day, hubby and I met several members of a large family. Pun intended! They were some of the nicest, happiest, most welcoming people we have met in a while. The matriarch was stick thin at 83. Lol. But her children have had a lifetime of really good eatin.
