Kevin Smith Knows Fat Hate Is Everywhere

February 23, 2010 02:39:48 GMT

He went public with his story and slammed bosses at the U.S. firm for the unfriendly move, receiving two apologies from Southwest chiefs. But Smith fears the negative reaction from airline staff is indicative of a much wider problem, insisting many overweight people face discrimination on a daily basis.
