First Lady, Michelle Obama, Please Don’t Endorse Bullying By Appearing on Biggest Loser!

Please join 100 organizations and professionals in sending The First Lady this important message about body image, weight stigma and bullying.  Sign the petition here: http://tinyurl.com/mpu3x3h

Add YOUR VOICE to the MashUp by clicking on the below video:

Research shows that:

  • Bullying of individuals in larger bodies (both children and adults) is the #1 cause for bullying.
  • Television shows such as The Biggest Loser directly contribute to low self-esteem, increased weight stigma and toxic shaming — the known risk factors for obesity, eating disorders and mental illnesses alike.
  • Victims of bullying fall victim to suicide, eating disorders and addictions.

By appearing on the show, The First Lady would directly be supporting bullying of children and adults.

PLEASE DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN.

Visit the YouTube MashUp and add your voice.  Tell your story.  Sign the petition.

  1. Sharing this. I agree, “Hate is not health,” as stated in this video. Sad that the biggest loser is accepted as okay.
