    Maybe she should think about losing weight before being annoyed at being called fat.

    "The mom says the yearbook staff apologized for printing the words but blames the publishing company for overlooking it."

    Piss-poor excuse from the yearbook staff. As if it`s the publishing company`s job to check the content! They just print what they`re given, it`s the yearbook staff who control the content.

    "are kids that much weaker these days?? We all got teased for one thing or another...my drating god..."

    It`s one thing for someone to to call you fat to your face. It`s another story when someone annonymously published the fact that you are fat in every copy of the year book. Remember, this isn`t something that was written in only her book, but it was coppied and published into ever book.

    These books are supposed to be proof read by the administration before publishing them. If that doesn`t happen, then the school isn`t doing their job. Simple as that.

    dear god that chick was disgustingly fat. and don`t give me that oh fat people can`t help the way they are bullsh** because back then there damn sure wasn`t as many fat people there is today. if you`re way overweight its you`re own fault and lifestyle choice. don`t cry when you get insulted and called out for being a nasty eyesore. its called lay off the cheeseburgers and exercise daily. i know many many people who this actually works for.

    Keith2 I can`t agree with you. Not every single fat person got that way on purpose from just eating unhealthily and not exercising. My sister has an irregular thyroid gland, causing her weight to fluctuate, no matter how healthy she eats and no matter how much she exercises. After she got diagnosed and started taking medication to correct it, she started dropping the pounds quick. I`m not saying everyone has a messed up thyroid, but I don`t think it is wise to call out people when it could actually be a medical problem. It makes you look like an a**

    Well, she is fat ofcourse, nobody can deny that, but a yearbook is not a place to be that disrespectful. Some people tend to keep that as a souvenir of schooltime, I can understand that the girl is really humiliated.

    Kids are cruel enough on their own, no need for any teacher to join them.

    You`re given just enough information to `feel sorry` for the girl, yet not enough to understand what really happened.

How is this even news? Big deal (no pun intended) they called her fat...tell the principal and stfu.

    What a freekin loser. She said she wants to be home schooled because she`s too embarrassed to go back... It`s not like it was a secret that she was a fatass. I`m sure that everybody knew she was fat before this happened. It`s not like people are going to go "OH MY GOD SHE IS FAT I NEVER NOTICED BEFORE!!! :O" when they see that in the yearbook. Anyway it`s just a yearbook people in my school write stuff like that too. They all knew you were fat before this happened. Get over it fatty!!!

    starfl4ke: It`s the swear filter. It looks for preset strings of characters, and replaces them. It doesn`t take context into account. Hence aeroplanes have roosterpits, because it detects the character sequence c-o-c-k and replaces it with "rooster".

    In your place, it detected the sequence n-i-g-g-e-r and replaced it with "I am a racist!", even though it was part of a different word, and not intended as a racist slur.

    I feel terrible for the girl for being so embarrassed, but to be honest, everyone suffers bullying. No one is really immune and you have to be a hell of a lot stronger than she`s being to get through school and the real world. Take it with a grain of salt, realize that the kid who wrote it is just a jerk, and move on.

    The ad before the video for adoptable kids kind of made me laugh. "Are you my family?" Because my news station does that to except for animals. Seems kinda odd to me that they would do that for kids.
    And in regards to the story, I think the yearbook teacher/editor or supervisor or whatever purposely overlooked these comments, I really do. Because, its kind of hard to NOT notice. Unless he was just a not-give-a-poo teacher who let the students send pages to the printer without looking over them first.
    Its true that bullyings gonna happen and stuff but this girl and the boy mentioned in the article have this in the YEARBOOK. Something thats supposed to carry cherished memories, now what does she have to remember?

    How do you know it was said to her face? I see it all the time, everyone is incredibly friendly and nice to one girl any other day but behind her back they run up to their friends going "oh my god she is such a dumb whore, i dont know why I talk to her"
    and she is being blatantly singled out by yearbook kids. Maybe she did have a group of close friends in high school and thats what she wanted to remember. Yeah she`s gonna have to get over being called fat eventually, but its being singled out that reallys hurtin.
    Its not like ALL the kids had something rude printed next to their names. She was trying to take part in the school by putting her signature in the yearbook with other members of the class.

    Ok here`s the thing, you can say that she needs to just "suck it up," but it`s an insult being directed toward her and she`s a freshman in high school. I can`t see her ever doing that, think about how insecure she must have been already. all that`s going to do is lower it. She`s probably going to be really sad for a while then she`s going to have major anger issues for the rest of her life or something. This is sad, I feel bad for that girl. High school is horrible.

    That`s a horrible thing to say. You don`t know this girl... chances are she struggles with her weight every day and i bet you she has tried many, many diets because she probably doesn`t want to be that way any more than you would.

    Lulz, made funny by the fact that the ad I got before the video was for Applebee`s new real-burgers, or whatever they`re called.

    And she definitely NEEDS to leave her room... And Maybe her house... And Maybe her neighborhood on occasion... On foot. Then maybe people wouldn`t be writing fat ass under her name in the yearbook.

    People like Sockbeam and especially Loxen should be ashamed of yourselves. There have been a lot of derogatory remarks made about this girl on this thread, and many are coming from 13-17 year olds. I`ll let those slide because they haven`t grown up yet, but especially loxen...age 30-39 being insensitive to a child just because sjhe`s overweight.

    Some people here have a point, it can`t be that hard for her to lose weight if she really feels this strongly about it.

    However, the real issue if the fact that the teacher should be editing EVERYTHING that`s given to them by high school students, being well aware that many students lack even basic moral values and common sense.

    Allow me to rephrase what I said before:

    1) She should quit crying and do something about it if it really bothers her.

    2) Students should never be in charge of anything that gets printed and sent to other students, that`s just retarded.

    You should have seen my high school yearbook. There were blatant spelling errors, names spelled wrong, favoritism (because the popular, preppy girls ran the yearbook, only their friends made feature pages), and other ridiculous mistakes.

    The fact is, my yearbook teacher was dumb enough not to know when something was done wrong, or promoted the fact that there was favoritism because she was in her 20`s and partied with the girls that did it. The only good yearbooks produced are the ones in elementary and middle school. They`re done by adults. In high school, expect a load of poo with a pretty cover and glossy pages. I felt ripped that I paid 60 something dollars for something that seemed to be written in a different language and the same faces were plastered on every page until it got to the classes.

    Listen, I used to be 204lbs. I went on Depo Provera, a birth control shot that among its list of annoying side effects, gaining 20 pounds in less than a month was plausible. Sure enough, I did. Yea, I lost it. I`m down to 145 now and working hard to get to 130 but unless you`ve been there and experienced how it feels to be overweight, you don`t understand why people who are don`t just jump up and work it off.

    It`s not that you`re lazy. It`s that you`re depressed, tired all the time, and you feel hopeless. When I reached that weight I though it was impossible. There was no way I was going to get back down to my previous, 170 that was content with and surpassed.

    I got tired of feeling so sick. It messes with your head. You feel as if you fit a stereotype. Nothing fits you. You feel ugly-I was almost suicidal at times. It was amazing how much losing weight fixed a lot of my psychological problems.

    I suggest before you rattle off solutions, walk a mile in her shoes (so to speak.)

    On topic. Mean kids suck, but don`t run from them. Go back to school and laugh at them because they`ll end up the ones stuck on welfare with a bunch of small children running around. Karma`s a bitch and paired with stupidity I reckon the kids that did that don`t have too big of a chance to accomplish much later in life.

    Pil- everyone is entitled to an opinion, however putting that opinion in a yearbook at the cost of another`s feelings is beyond reprimand. I`m sure there are things about yourself that you don`t like and I`m also very sure that if anyone had written about them in your High School Yearbook in such a manner you`d have been mortified and hurt. The bottom line is yes she could lose weight but no one in the world should be allowed to do that to another person.

    "Fat girl is called fat and all hell breaks loose?"

    It`s not appropriate for this to be in the yearbook. Maybe from a counselor, a nutrition, a concerned relative, her mother—but getting it from random students in high school isn`t going to help her. Seeing it written in the yearbook isn`t going to help, it will actually make things worse.

    Puritans. It`s all their fault. >_>

    ANYWAY...that was a real dick move. Joke or not, it`s not at all nice or very funny.

    Of course High School isn`t all of life and once you graduate it`ll all be behind you. Many people don`t keep their HS friends, some might, but many grow apart. Natural cycle and all.

    So be nice, be respectful, don`t be a douche. You`ll live a lot happier that way and people will naturally like you more. Empathy works too.

    see this is much diffrent then the girl with no panties on-- that was her own fault and she deserves what she got

    this poor girl is probably just going to have more weight issues becuase emotion is a huge over eating triggers

    whoever wrote it should live to be her weight and then get fat-butt written permanately on something of theirs for 2000+ people to see

    Ok, commando girl deserved what she got, but this girl, not so much. Not at all really. I agree with Slepre on this one. Her mood will likely deteriorate to the point where she gains even more weight. Why are we so stupid over here in North America (I`ve seen reports similar to this one in Canada as well)? I never hear about crap like this happening anywhere else. I`ve even looked.

    To be honest, I rarely feel any pity for obese people because I`ve seen countless examples of them stopping their whining about their weight and the sh*t that they get from it, and entering a exersize regimen that allows them to become much more healthy and lose lots of weight. Of course, as with everything, it`s not as easy as it sounds, and this girl did not deserve that kind of degradation, but still I feel like if she really tried to, she could return to a healthy weight.

    I`m not so little around the middle either, but I can`t help thinking this wasn`t entirely unprovoked.
    Sure, the kid who wrote it was a jackass, but for all we know, the girl could be a real bitch, too.
    Sure, high-schoolers are cruel, but I`ve known many a girl bigger than her, and nothing like this happened to them.
    However, even the skinniest girls are called fatasses, be they bitchy enough. :/

    I dunno. If she`s a good person, then whoever wrote it should just rot. Judging by some of these comments, it`s entirely possible.
    But I really can`t guess her character. She could just be another bratty little girl who pissed the wrong person off. :/

With that being said, I`m sorry. Did I say "boobs"? I meant knuckles. Yes. She IS a child. Feel free to insult as many people as you want, but you have to have pretty low self-esteem to pick on a high-school kid, you dumb bitch.
