Insert obligatory tricks over treats joke, here.
An anonymous woman in North Dakota has informed her neighbors that she will not be giving some of their children candy this Halloween because they are, in her opinion, “moderately obese.”
The offending letter has been republished online by North Dakoka news site Valley News Live, who reports it first got public attention after the author spoke out on a local radio show:
According to Valley News, the anonymous Debbie Downer also discussed the motives behind her little stunt, saying “I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight… I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it.”
Well, we think it’s really irresponsible to fat-shame five year olds on a sugar high (who also ostensibly have access to tons of eggs and toilet paper), and our hope is that the parents of West Fargo will step up and not allow grouchy neighborhood bullies to ruin their kids’ fun. Yeesh.
