I thought I’d never see the day that a Pixar family animation would cause controversy, however it seems today is that day.
WALL-E has garnered rave reviews for its satire on consumer culture, in which future humans are depicted as a group of obese gluttons who never leave their padded floating arm chairs.
But one group is not amused – the swelling ranks of fat pride groups, who believe the film propagates anti-obesity hysteria comparable with the quest for the perfect body by the eugenics movement in Nazi Germany.
The anti WALL-E crusade began on the internet. Rachel Richardson of the Coalition of Fat Rights Activists (Cofra), used her blog, “The F-Word”, to object that the film “singles out and targets obese people as the primary cause of mankind’s demise.”
Dear angry fat people, if you spent as much time exercising as you do getting pissed over a kids film then you would be a healthy and less fat.
That is all.
