Disgusting and quite frankly,disgusting doesn't even begin to cover it ...

My soul sister and switched at birth twin,fraternal of course cuz she's much prettier than I, posted this and I was speechless.Doesn't happen often as I am not known in these parts for my quiet and demur personality.But,seriously, what words could I possibly come up with to articulate my complete and utter disgust with this.I wouldn't have laughed BEFORE I had Zoey and I am certainly not laughing now.As Gwen said,I am not sure which I am most bothered by,the content of this material OR the fact that an ENTIRE auditorium is finding this hilarious.I love comedy.I am all for humor.But this, this is not funny.

Click below,watch,and probably some of you won't even be able to get through it, and if you wish come back and let me know what you think and what,if anything we can do to change this narrow minded way of thinking and speaking..My point,I guess if there even is one,in re-posting this,is that,it seems no matter what we do,or how very hard we educate and advocate,it often is just not going to matter.I find that point to be so very,very sad.

VERY DISGUSTING AND VERY SAD!!!

My first thought is to get REALLY angry, which I am! But my second thought was this:

People that make fun of others and talk about others probably have a very low confidence and have LOTS going on with them, which causes them to be mean to others.

I think this guy is a real creep, but I totally feel sorry for him! He's obviously a very unhappy person who needs our prayers and some outside help!

These are my thoughts. This makes me sad, but instead of dwelling on it, I will choose to focus on the many people in this world that are nice to my son! And, thankfully there are many out there who are still good!

Love ya Heather! Hugs!!!

I am beyond disgusted. What hits home even more is that my daughter loves chocolate milk and asks for it in the same way he yelled it. I find his way revolting and her way endearing. I work at a college and we are very clear with words that are offensive and thankfully have a common vision to work hard at wiping the R word out of the vocabulary of our students.

no I didnt see the humor. I am pretty open minded. but some people feel that in putting others down they are raising themselves up. so rather than let people focus on his weight problem perhaps the speaker chose to deflect to making fun of someone else. I didnt even watch the entire clip. it was just not funny, amusing, or even INTERESTING.

How pathetic that someone who clearly has a significant physical/emotional problem would take it upon himself to target his brothers and sisters who also struggle to find acceptance.

I'm sure this guy has had every cruel fat joke spewed at him since childhood, which probably emboldens him to pass the hurt on to others. So gross.

Im sorry, I just cant watch it.
I hope Zoeys rash is doing better and that you have a FAB weekend!

I can't stand this guy. I will not even whatch since literally 99.9% of what comes out of his mouth is disgusting and offensive. He seems to be confused about what true humor is. He is truly disgusting.

Lacey said...

Maybe this guy should lose a few hundred pounds before he starts making fun of other people! Sad really!

Shari said...

I agree! Very disgusting and sad! Like VW's my first thought was to get angry! What it all boils down to is that people who joke about this kind of thing are uneducated and have no clue how it hurts others. Our own family jokes about this and no matter how much we tell them it hurts they still do it. I dont' understand why people 'don't get it'.

I always hated this guy. And this give me even more of a reason to never watch him.
He is a poor excuse for a human and shouldnt be making fun of others as he doesnt have much room to talk. He could loose a couple pounds, off his chin...nevermind the rest. Jerk.

DISGUSTING and SAD!!!!!! I won't bother wasting my breathe on a comment......instead, I will use that breathe to tell my precious Landon how VERY much I love him:)

i can't stand this guy - he's offensive in everything he says and worse, i just can't even look at him....he's worse than that tool andrew dice clay who i was appalled and offended by when he was popular when i was in my teens. i agree with others here in that sadly so many people have to put others down and make fun of people so that they feel a little better about themselves....disgusting!

i think what is worse, though, is that there are people that DO think people like this are funny and encourage them by laughing at them and paying money to see them....i'm so sick of society allowing anyone to be a "target"....we need to stop being so damned tolerant of this type of treatment and these actions....sorry....very riled up about this....)

i hope miss zoey's rash is doing better - poor thing!!!

What a creep.

Hugs to Zoey :)

OH I have words!! None I can put in print.

Emmie can take him you know. Five minutes and he'd be beggin' for mercy.

Ironic. Today I visited my kids school, with Miss Em. We gave a talk to the 6th grade. All about Ds. The first step is to educate. I think we squashed a couple of Ralphie May's today.

Hope he's the last of his breed. This is where extinction is not always a bad thing.

Jamie said...

This guys a Douche. Eww hes so gross and fat too! :p!

Brian said...

This guy is pitiful. I wish I could find more words besides what everyone else has said; disgusting, offensive, 'a douche', a creep... He is all of the above and plenty more.

Cammie Heflin said...

OMG! The audience was just as bad as the "comedian"!

Angi said...

Sorry Heather CANNOT bring myself to watch it (read comments first and that said enough to me)...hope Zoey is feeling better! What did you get for your tattoos? I read a comment on a website the other day...the difference between people with tattoos and those without...people with tattoos don't care (or judge) you if you don't have any...thought it interesting:-)

This is Joyce. Ok I have never heard of this guy(it is a male?) before, but before he ever uttered a sound I knew he had some issues. This is a great example of the instant access of the internet not being a good thing. So sad.
