Comedian James Corden’s had a masterful response to being fat shamed that everyone should hear. But he missed a few things that are important to note. Coach Elizabeth Hall took the time to break it down.
Among other things she corrected Jame’s statement about weight and health:
You said “we know being overweight isn’t good for us”? But it turns out that people who are overweight actually live longer than people who are smaller according to studies. Longevity is not based only on weight, it’s based on the behaviors a person engages in – no matter what size they are. So it’s not accurate to say that being overweight, without taking other factors into account, isn’t good.
Thank you James Corden for being vulnerable, and thank you Elizabeth Hall for filling in the gaps.
