A Halloween obese letter is drawing a lot of fire for a woman in Fargo, N.D. who's determined to make a night of trick-or-treating about something else; a negative message. She wrote a letter about the kids who'll be knocking on her door being "moderately obese" instead of handing them candy, USA Today reports Oct. 30.
The Halloween obese letter was written by an unidentified woman who interviewed with radio station Y94.
"I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight. ... I think it's just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just 'cause all the other kids are doing it," she said.
The obese letter reads as follows:
"You 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."
Many believe that the children receiving this cold letter could lead to emotional damage, especially at such a young age. Halloween is suppose to be about fun, not being reprimanded by someone who has no role in their lives. Even if the Halloween obese letter is mostly targeted towards the parents, it's highly offensive and hurtful.
