Former Fat-Shaming Bully Apologizes on Reddit After Gaining Over 100 Pounds Himself

嘲笑胖子的人,自己却变成了胖子

Sadly, body shamers are everywhere. In the last few weeks alone, trolls called photos of Simone Biles in a swimsuit "ugly" and "gross," Amy Schumer's social feeds were filled with hateful comments after she was cast in an upcoming Barbie movie, and Lena Dunham felt the need to defend her un-Photoshopped Glamour cover.

爱嘲笑别人身材的人,哪里都有。几周前,还有人发帖骂体操女将Simone Biles的泳装照又丑又恶心。微胖女星Amy Schumer宣布出演真人芭比电影的消息后,她的社交主页也骂声一片。莉娜·杜汉姆因自己未PS的Glamour杂志封面照片备受争议,还决定出来说点什么。

嘲笑胖子的人,自己却变成了胖子

Now, at least one body-shaming bully is trying to make amends with the people he used to harass. On Tuesday, Reddit user roundrobinator posted to the weight loss subreddit LoseIt an "Open Letter of Apology." "I am the one who was giving you dirty looks in the grocery store. I am the one who rolled their eyes at you in the restaurant. " he says at the beginning of his screed. Later, he reveals what caused his change of heart: After a lifetime of being thin, he ruptured his Achilles' tendon and gained 119 pounds, and became the butt of the same types of jokes and insensitive comments he used to dish out. He wrote the apology letter shortly after a random passerby made pig-snorting noises at him.

不过令人欣慰的是,有个曾经嘲笑过别人身材的人,最近试图站出来对他伤害过的人道歉。上周二,Reddit上一位叫roundrobinator的网友在“减肥”专栏发了篇“公开道歉信。”“我是曾在商店对你们投过鄙视眼神的人;我也是在饭店对你们翻白眼的人。”他在长文的开头这么说。随后,他分享了自己改变想法的心路历程:自己之前一直都很瘦,后来跟腱撕裂养伤期间,胖了119磅,切身体会了被人嘲笑肥胖的体验。在陌生路人对他开玩笑,发出猪哼哼的声音后不久,他觉得是时候写这封道歉信了。

"[I hoped] that someone like me who's never been big and tended to judge those who are would read this and just go out into the world with somewhat of a different perspective the next day," roundrobinator told Health via Reddit. (He declined to provide his real name.) He also said he wants to be a more body-positive role model for his daughter.

“我希望那些像我之前一样的瘦人和那些喜欢以貌取人的人,看到此文后能有所改变,”roundobinator(他拒绝提供真名)通过Rediit告诉Health网站。他说自己也想以身作则,给女儿树立一个身体自信的正能量形象。

The letter received an outpouring of positive comments—more than the anonymous writer says he ever could have imagined. He says other Reddit users have offered him health advice books they've written, complimentary consulting services, and simply words of support on his journey to reclaim his own health.

这封信获得的评论如潮——原作者也没想到会是这个结果。他说Reddit网友中,有人给他提供自己写的有关健康建议的书,有人提供免费咨询服务,还有人鼓励他重拾健康。

Regardless of the author's motives, he concludes his apology with a message we wish we saw more often: "I know now that you are so much more than your weight."

无论道歉信作者的初衷是什么,他在结尾说的话,也是我们希望更多人能明白的:“你本人比你的身材重要的多。”
