Here's the video in question...
Pat's take: So rail thin models promote healthy women? Last time I checked that's a big no. What an idiotic thing to go after.
I also don't see her as "very, very obese." I see her as normal, average, typical in build. This doesn't promote obesity, it promotes a clothing line that fits people who aren't built like a classic model, which is pretty much everyone.
Some people hit the genetic lotto. Some don't. Being thin doesn't make you a good person and doesn't mean you're healthy.
