The upcoming reality show focusing on three "mixed-weight" couples
consisting of a "hunky" man and a plus-sized woman has received
widespread backlash on Twitter. As one Twitter user explains, "Since
TLC's production team somehow missed this, it is INCREDIBLY
disrespectful to first, characterize someone based solely on their size
and second, portray concepts of 'hot' and 'heavy' as polar opposites -
implying that hot and heavy may not ...characterize one person
simultaneously."
