Outraged Readers to Protest ‘Marie Claire’

A scene from Mike & Molly

Readers outraged by the recent Marie Claire article titled “Should ‘Fatties’ Get a Room? (Even on TV)?” are planning to protest in front of the magazine’s Manhattan offices today at 6p.m. The Big Fat Kiss-In plans to bring out people of “all shapes and sizes” who will kiss in all kinds of ways – platonic kisses, air kisses, Hershey’s Kisses, and more, according to the Facebook page – whether Marie Claire likes it or not.

Protesters are angry because of the article and because of the magazine’s refusal to apologize.
