Just a few days ago, TLC announced they have a new show coming out, and it’s called Hot & Heavy.
It’s a brand new reality TV series about “mixed-weight” couples, and people on Twitter are up in arms over it.
Three different couples are featured on the new show: Adrianna and Ricardo, Kristin and Rusty, and Joy and Chris.

Here’s where people are finding offense in all of this.
It’s not that the show features couples in love that are of different shapes and sizes, that’s something pretty much everyone would happily applaud.
It’s the way certain things have been handled that people are taking issue with. People are first and foremost upset with the title, which they are saying is pretty offensive.
They’re also not happy that all the couples feature women who are the biggest ones in the relationship, saying that this is another example of fat-shaming women.
The concept would have worked if you had some men heavier than the women. By only targeting overweight women, y’all made it weird. #HotandHeavy
Of course, only the women are heavier.
Let’s retitle, “How Can Men Possibly Love Fat Women?”
