Fat Cosplayers Facebook Inspires Rage In Anime Fans Who Loathe Cosplay Fat Shaming

That angry sound you hear is not the voice actors from Dragonball Z: Battle Of Gods doing their best to power up. That’s the sound of the rage inspired by the so-called Fat Cosplayers 2.0 Facebook page that was apparently set up with the intention of fat shaming overweight women dressing up as their favorite anime characters.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, a slut shaming study claims the usage of the insulting term is actually a fight caused by class warfare. A fat shaming study claims the practice does not motivate obese people to lose weight and also offers advice on what does work.

The Fat Cosplayers community page was set up on September 27, 2014 and already has become infamous with the anime communities. Although there are relatively few Facebook likes for the page, it is being spread around on social media if only to criticize the message. For example, the admin writes in the description for several photos that the women are a “disgrace to the character” and advises that people should not “insert anything into [their] eyes if they hurt, just switch tabs.”

One of the targets of the Fast Cosplayers Facebook page noticed she was being criticized and took it all in stride, simply highlighting who made the costume for her. The comments that followed were all supportive and congratulated her on the quality of her cosplay costume.

Another photo shows a woman is only slightly overweight, which actually fits the character. One comment called out the Fat Cosplayers admin for highlighting the photo in the first place.

“This woman is beautiful, and what gives you the right to say she is fat? Really? FAT? No wonder so many women feel they have to be a size 0 to be accepted in this world. It’s because of people like you who don’t know what true beauty is. So how about you grow up and stop being a ignorant a**hole.”

Unfortunately, these type of fat shaming Facebook pages have become a popular trend in recent times. One fat shaming page was dedicated to the Iowa State Fair and, although the focus seemed to be on humor, not many people found it too funny. The so-called 530 fatties Facebook page became infamous for collecting photos of obese and overweight people in California only to mock them publicly. When reporters began investigating, the 530 fatties page was taken down but by then the damage had already been done.
