Fat shaming is a heinous thing to do to someone, especially when they are eating or about to eat. But that does not justify killing someone.
On August 14, this girlfriend from China had reportedly asked for buying an icecream. However, the boyfriend instead fat shamed her saying ‘you’re already so fat and you still want to eat ice cream?’
The woman in question reportedly bought a pair of scissors from a nearby shop soon after her boyfriend made the insulting comment.
In silent rage, she stabbed him four times with the pair of scissors, on the shopping street itself.
Onlooking passers-by immediately contacted the police and called for an ambulance, but it was too late to save him by the time the police had arrived.
The paramedics tried to save the man by sending him to a hospital for emergency treatment, but it was too late as he had lost too much blood.
The woman was arrested after she reportedly tried to escape, and suffered minor injuries as well.
The couple had been dating for less than a month.
Agreed, fat-shaming is unacceptable and extremely hurtful to the person at the receiving end. But that still doesn’t give anyone the license kill someone.
