Some commenters of this movie obviously have no idea what the message of this movie is about =_= It's not saying that fat people SHOULD be bullied for their weight, its saying that fat people DO get bullied for their weight. This movie is a glimpse into the life of a fat boy who experiences fatphobic bullying like many fat people and fights through it and achieves his goals and learns to love himself.
