Female commuters in London who were innocently making their way to work via the tube have been singled out and reduced to floods of tears by a professional trolling group, Overweight Haters Ltd.
The unsuspecting commuters were minding their own business and relishing, or perhaps dreading, another day at the office, when they were preyed upon by that most modern of monsters — the troll.
Often defined as cave dwellers or bottom feeders, trolls are a spiteful, resentful, and malicious sub species that delights in upsetting random strangers. Their driving force is often considered to be a massive inferiority complex and a deep subconscious disgust at their own cowardly nature and vile ways.
Trolls do not often venture out from the safety and shadow of mommy’s basement and into the sunlight of the real world, but when they do, they cause merry havoc, as a group of shocked commuters in London found out recently.
A trolling group called Overweight Haters Ltd caused untold grief when they handed out cruel cards to female commuters which described them as “fat, ugly humans,” and which gleefully pointed out to their tearful victims, “It’s really not glandular, it’s your gluttony,” before explaining why they had chosen to dish out the cards.
“Our organization hates and resents fat people. We object to the enormous amount of food resources you consume while half the world starves.
“We disapprove of your wasting NHS money to treat your selfish greed.
“And we do not understand why you fail to grasp that by eating less you will be better off, slimmer, happy and find a partner who is not a perverted chubby-lover, or even find a partner at all.
“We also object that the beautiful pig is used as an insult. You are not a pig.
“You are a fat ugly human.”
After being given the cards, with the insult “fat” looming large on the one side, the recipients were left gob-smacked, and some even started crying at the actions of the trolls who would presumably describe themselves as “Skinny, beautiful humans.”
The Daily Express reports that Kara Florish, from Southend, was handed a card by an unidentified male troll.
“I was handed this card on the underground. It is hateful and cowardly and could potentially upset people struggling with confidence.”
Another onlooker who saw a woman reduced to tears after being handed the Overweight Haters Ltd card at Oxford Circus, took to Twitter to vent his disgust.
“Young man just got on rain at Oxford Circus, gave printed card saying YOU’RE FAT to overweight girl. He jumped off. She read it and cried.
“Really. That just happened. She really cried. A random act of pointless cruelty.
“Am 99.9% sure this wasn’t staged. She didn’t even realize I was watching at first.
“Her stunned, desolate reaction was very real. Then tears.”
Transport for London (TfL) is conducting its own research of the incidents, and Tube passengers have been urged to contact the police if they have been given one of the the hateful cards.
“All of our customers have the right to travel with confidence, and this sad and unpleasant form of anti-social behavior will not be tolerated.
“If anyone is ever made to feel uncomfortable while traveling they should immediately report it to station staff or a police officer.”
If the actions of Overweight Haters Ltd prove anything, it’s that the trolls are gonna judge, and the haters gonna hate, but ugly is as ugly does.
