Default Hey CNN - This wording is offensive!!

"When the fat girl disses sweets" is used as the 'come on' title to attract readers to the story of a woman whose chocolate addiction almost took over her life. Then article page title is "My faith: When the fat girl kissed sweets goodbye". Really? They had to use FAT GIRL? It is offensive on so many different levels!

I doubt the author titled the article. Her book actually called "Made to Crave". Looks interesting.

But really - CNN - you should be ashamed of yourself.
