BeautifulPeople give Fatties the Boot 04-01-2010


Social network and dating site has given around 5,000 users the boot after complaints that they had gained weight.

BeautifulPeopleBanner have a member voting process to see if you are attractive enough to join the site and call themselves "the largest network of attractive people in the world". 

Around 5,000 of these members have been kicked off following complaints from existing users that they had gained weight over the festive break. 

If this wasn't funny enough, site founder Robert Hintze was quoted as saying "Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which was founded."

This has got to be our quote of the year so far...
