A controversial post from journalist Maura Kelly on "Marie Claire" magazine yielded over 28.000 emails from readers complaining about the content of the text and an apology from the author. What was the story, anyway? Among other things, Maura said she felt "disgusted" to see two fat people kissing and that she felt "uncomfortable" when seeing a morbidly obese person walking down the street.

* The reporter just wanted to comment on the success of the sitcom "Mike & Molly", which has two overweight actors as protagonists, but, she lost the reason. "I apologize to whoever I offended, shouldn’t have been so quick to judge others," Kelly wrote later. Ok, then.
