Making fun of fat people isn't funny

I went to see Pitch Perfect 2 at the weekend. What a load of musical muck.

There were many offensive elements in the movie, not least the self-ridiculing of Rebel Wilson (below) and her weight. Fat Amy, as she is known, did everything to make her physique the laughing stock of the movie.

It reminded me of being young in the playground and someone would make fun of themselves before anyone else got the chance to. I'm over the whole Rebel Wilson and Melissa McCarthy thing of "let's make fat funny".

It's not funny giving young cinema-goers permission to laugh at people who are overweight.
