Lad tells girlfriend she’s ‘overweight’ and Reddit users say he’s in the right

All sizes are beautiful, but if there’s one thing we know it’s that telling your partner they’re “overweight” is usually going to get you in trouble.

However, it seems that in one bloke’s experience people think he did the right thing in insulting his girlfriend.

Surprising right?

The man posted a controversial thread in the r/AmItheA**hole sub-forum on Reddit titled “Am I the a***hole for pointing out to my girlfriend that she is overweight?”

And, for once it seems people thought it was OK!

Do you think the boyfriend was in the right? Tell us why in the comments section below…


He explained: “I've been with my girl for two years now, and known her for three and since I've known her, she's had a really bad habit of making fun of people.

“Mostly behind closed doors, but sometimes in front of them.

“I always tell her to chill, but she never listens.”

He continued: “Well this past weekend, we went out to eat at a local place, and our waitress was a bit on the heavy side.

“Not fat by any means, but a bit chubby.

“All things considered, she looked good. About an 8/10 without makeup, and she was being really nice to us.

“We ordered, and when she walked away, my girlfriend started making fun of her weight.

“The girl looked back at us, then kept walking – I told my girl that the waitress heard her and she said she didn't care.”

His girlfriend continued to make fun of the waitress’s weight and when the server re-appeared he could see she was “holding back tears.”

The bloke added: “My girl is just giggling and staring at her.

“I got mad and said ‘Why are you laughing? She's thinner than you.’ She got up and walked out to the car.

“I paid for the food which wasn't even ready, left a tip, apologised to the waitress, and we left. She didn't say a word on the way home.”

The man said that his girlfriend keeps demanding that he apologise and his father and brother told him he was too “harsh”.

The poster said: “The only way she's getting an apology from me is if she gives one to the waitress. If she can't do that, then she needs to stop bringing this up.”

He asked if he was in the wrong and the resounding answer was no.

One person commented: “Please break up with that fat-phobic, inconsiderate bully, go back to the restaurant and ask the waitress out on a date.”

“It would've been different if she acknowledged that her words hurt the waitress,” another added.

“She seems to take pride and humour in bringing other people down to make herself feel better.

“If you can't take it, don't dish it to other people. What you said was harsh but warranted.”

A third added: “Being mean to service staff is such a toxic thing to do.”

Hundreds of comments agreed that, just this once, he was right for insulting his partner.

What do you think? Was he in the right?
