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
Yeah, I saw this yesterday. Whoever created it should be ashamed.
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...
photos of overweight or obese people in public
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.
Some doc was ranting on the radio yesterday about his going up to a guy in the grocery store and telling him about all the bad things that were in his grocery cart. Listened for quite a while hoping they would have a phone number to call in but they didn’t give one and it’s no wonder. Just nobody’s business what I have in my grocery cart unless they notice all the ice cream and want to know which flavor we prefer.
There is nothing wrong with shaming people who engage in self-destructive or antisocial behavior. Whether that behavior involves overeating, sodomy, promiscuity, voting Democrat, or something else.
This is how societies have enforced their mores for thousands of years.
I disagree with this. There is no reason, other than cruelty, to post pictures of fat people online on a ridicule website. We can talk all we want about how heavy people should lose weight and should not eat as much or exercise, but that is not a reason to publicly ridicule them. They aren’t hurting anyone by being fat.
What about people of Wal Mart? Does that site get permission to post peoples unflattering pictures there??? What are the laws or regulations for this sort of thing???
I heard they ate that dog.
Served him with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.
Back when I smoked I had a few great fat pigs try to admonish me for doing so.
I politely pointed out that they were not only great fat pigs but also hypocrites.
Shut’em right up it did to.
[If, however, these peoples pics were posted at People of Walmart, then thatd be OK. (Its a JOKE, son)]
Just the other day I was in the checkout line at our local Wallyworld. Directly in front of me was a father with what looked like about a 7 year old son. Just in front of them was a huge lady with a posterior that wouldn’t quit. Her cell phone went off giving off a series of BEEP, BEEP, BEEP’S.
The son suddenly said, “look out Dad, she’s backing up”.
For all of us who heard the above, it made our day.
now we just pass law to do all that.
bigger gubmint is better gubmint, comrades!
i think People of Walmart is no longer on the web.
One reason most public assistance is wrong is that it provides people with an “acceptable” excuse to despise and wish to control others.
If it makes you feel better, don’t think of your tax dollars as (possibly) paying for pretty young Jessi’s medical care. Think of them as paying for a state college professor of Queer and Transgendered Studies or Barack Obama’s salary.
(Unless you have an astoundingly high income, you’re not paying anything like enough taxes to cover either of those.)
cacomorphobia - A fear of fat or obese people, not a hatred or dislike. Literally terrified of being around a fat person without a rational reason.
Being a skinny fella, fat ppl do bother me somewhat, but a fat democrat causes my head to explode...just kidding on that last part.
Only on TV.
Barbara Mikulski would be dreadful even if she was thin ... see Nancy Pelosi.
I don’t know anything about the young woman pictured except that I think she’s pretty, even though she’s fat. If she decides she doesn’t want to be fat, Weight Watchers works for anyone who consistently follows the plan.
However, weight loss doesn’t change a bad person into a good one, and weight gain doesn’t change a good person into a bad one.
I have noticed many times that many fat, dumpy men won’t have a chubby or fat mate. No, they want 8s or 9s. It’s weird.
Did you not click through to the article? She had already lost 50 pounds from when that photo was taken.

'Cause that's FUNNY!!!!!
in the article the your women said she has already lost 50 lb and put up a pic of her new self
To paraphrase the late Johnny Cochran...
“If the hips are wide, you must deride....”
Obesity is not a conservative value, nor is stuffing your teenaged daughter full of Cheetos.
What makes us different from hippy dippy liberals is that we have community standards, and we’ll call people out for ridiculous behavior instead of trying to make them feel good about their poor decisions.
No government intervention needed, just good old fashioned social pressure. The way it’s worked for millennia.
She would be beautiful if she lost 50-60 pounds.
Good for her.
