Obese people can indeed be that way due to genetics. We cannot assume that this girl is just lazy and loves junk food. That said, I am baffled that a paying customer could be kicked off the plane. Did she buy her ticket in advance or was she on standby?
Edit: One of the comments on the site claims the woman was on standby. In that case, fine. There was no seat available for her. The girl is only 14; the airline cannot just dump her off the plane and leave her in the airport.

That fat cow should have been forced to buy 2 seats. And in this case, pay for the smaller woman's hotel room.

Why is this on ATS? This should be on BTS. This is just a venue for OP to vent her anger at fat people. I did see some people taking a conspiratorial approach with saying how health foods are too expensive and whatnot. It is obvious the OP had no conspiratorial take on the story. This is just a rant.
And as someone said earlier, you idolize a heroin user while ranting agains those that do things to disable themselves or make themselves ill. Brilliant OP. Human hypocrisy at its best.
