Woman Says She'll Give 'Obese' Trick-or-Treaters Letters, No Candy

Ding dong.

"Trick-or-treat."

"Sorry kid, you're fat."

That's pretty much the scenario that will be played out tomorrow night at the home of a North Dakota woman who insists that she'll on handing out letters to kids that she deems to be moderately obese. The Fargon, N.D. woman told a local radio station that will hand out letters to kids that reads:


"Happy Halloween and Happy Holidays Neighbor!

You are probably wondering why your child has this note; have you ever heard the saying, 'It takes a village to raise a child?' I am disappointed in the 'village' of Fargo Morehead, West Fargo.

You (sic) child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season.

My hope is that you will step up as a parent and ration candy this Halloween and not allow your child to continue these unhealthy eating habits.

Thank You."

The woman is only identified as Cheryl and her letter has quickly gone viral. In the radio interview, she said, "I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight ... I think it's just really responsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just 'cause all the other kids are doing it."
