People suck

So tonight my mom and I watched the Grammys. Adele, as predicted by many, pretty much took the whole show, winning every award she had been nominated for (I think). CNN.com posted an article about her sweeping success tonight and, unfortunately, opened the article up for comments.

Why “unfortunately”? Here are a few of said comments:

  • “Adele is such a fat pig. I hope she has a heart attack.”
  • “a fattie that hollers & screams and it’s accepted as music”
  • “Oh, dont get us wrong, her singing sucks too. We hate that as well.”
  • “its just the sounds of a hefty woman cackling & yelling”
  • “british singers used to be great… before you started exporting chubbies”
  • “she is hefty & homely hence the 2lbs of makeup caked on her mug”

We all know how I feel about size and sizeism, but putting all that aside—seriously, people? The woman has an amazing voice and you can’t get past her physical appearance? Chill the hell out and appreciate her talent, you jealous plebeians.

Holy freaking crap.
