    All you have to do is look at the failed attempt at English by Jazmyn and Rachel. Their own issues bring out the bashing of others. I feel sorry for the lack of self confidence and the complete butchering of the English language. Leave the overweight people alone and get an English tutor, One with a lot of patience to teach idiots or at least make the attempt.
