A journalist refuses to send her daughter to a day care with “overweight” teacher.
British Daily Mail journalist Hilary Freeman has come under fire for saying she will not send her daughter to a school with an “overweight” teacher.
Freeman who was public about looking for a daycare for her school sent her daughter on a test trial but was not happy.
While the mother did say the teacher was nice and kind, Freman herself was not nice and kind with her words.
“She was only in her 20s, but she was already obese — morbidly so. She moved slowly and breathlessly, her face flushed,” Freeman wrote for the Daily Mail. “Would she, I wondered, have the lightning reflexes needed to save an adventurous toddler from imminent danger?”
“Would she, I wondered, have the lightning reflexes needed to save an adventurous toddler from imminent danger?”
Later, it was revealed that Freeman took her daughter to a school where “the staff are all a healthy weight.”
In all of her comments, Freeman sticks to her stance that she was not being discriminatory.
However, twitter users heavily disagree saying, “Cannot help but feel a tad sorry for her offspring!”
This is not the first time that Freeman has come under fire for her words towards “overweight” people.
She joined a mothers facebook page just to post a statement saying, “nobody is born obese.”
“What sort of unhealthy habits would she teach my daughter, who would be eating her lunch and tea there each day?” she asks, reaching for justification.
She finished by saying, “Perhaps I feel so strongly about this because I’m a slim person with a fat person inside, wanting to burst out. My body clings on to every calorie it can. A doctor told me evolution had ensured I would survive a famine — not that useful for a 21st-century North London girl with a sedentary job.”
