BeautifulPeople give Fatties the Boot 04-01-2010
Social network and dating site BeautifulPeople.com has given around 5,000 users the boot after complaints that they had gained weight.
BeautifulPeople.com 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.
