  • James Corden you are not grossly obese like we are in America the fact that you jumped all over this shows that you probably space out when you go to eat your Donuts

  • I used to make fun of my sister who was slightly overweight and never was skinny.
    My son got big too as a child and I had to really curb my attitude so he could have happier
    memories. Then when he was 20 and I had a heart attack, I had to eat a heart healthy
    diet. I got healthier and he lost 90 lbs. Eating no animal fats and more vegetables with our meals.

  • food is not the main reason, stress and the main one is sleep, sure food matters, but sleep and be active all day is 2 main reasons of obesity so sleep well during the night be active all day and eat not burgers but salads, meat no sugar drink soda or dressings and toppings get better

  • Shaming fat people just makes them eat more. I'd be willing to wager that if you shame alcoholics and drug addicts, their situations would get worse. Empathy can go a long way in helping people become healthier.

  • I call b.s. on Corden. I'm fat and I am American (and I live in the U.S.) At the end of the day I am fat because I'm both genetically predisposed to be so AND because I fail to always take into account what it is I eat and how much I exercise. Let's not kid ourselves here: Corden is a millionaire with access to personal trainers and above-standard nutrition. He has so many options available to him that if he really didn't want to be fat anymore he'd make a change to not be fat anymore. Just like me and just any other fat person living in the U.S.

  • Shows like Family Guy ,and The Simpsons love to poke fun at fat people ! 🙊 I guess when you put someone else down, it makes them feel Superior ! 🤔🤪💥

  • BILL thinks "FAT SHAMING" is good. How about "JEW SHAMING" Bill, is that good also👍😏 You Bully us about our SIZE, GENDER, RACE and we Bully you back.

  • fat is a dysfunction, not something to be ashamed over. if all you care about is appearance, kiss your life goodbye after 50, because you are going to be ugly full of wrinkles. you got to get a deeper appreciation of life than that.

  • I hear Democrats want to ban competitive team sports from American schools. Because their fat kids never get into the teams, you see, and because the fit republican kids who are the stars of those teams, keep bullying these porky and dum democrat kids.
    So, soon there will be no saturday night football at the local high, if the chubby, fitness hating dems get their way.
