It’s great that size acceptance and a voice that counters the vehemence of the “war on obesity” is getting the kind of publicity that lands an ally on The Colbert Report, but far be it for Stephen Colbert to pass up the easy opportunity at some introductory fat jokes. Though I’m not really sure how to feel about the lead in for Farrell’s interview, I’m glad that she got airtime.
