English TikTok star Ed Matthews recently made a video where he lambasted fat people. During a bizarre clip, he said: “A lot of people think I have an agenda against people. I was thinking about it and I think I do. There’s something about fat people that I can’t take them seriously. How can you not control their weight? Probably the easiest thing you can control unless you’re depressed. Then don’t spread some body positivity confidence when you know you’re fat. Even if you’re confident, do not poison the youth. Get in the gym today.”
The video was captioned ‘deep thoughts this morning’. The video garnered nearly 1,500 comments. Here, some agreed with him while others called him out for being overly critical. As ever with Ed Matthews, it looks as though his thoughts are divisive as ever. As the saying goes, there’s no such thing as bad publicity. Nonetheless, some accused him of going too far on this one.
Overall, it will be interesting to see how Matthews continues his online career. So far, he has made a name for himself for being outspoken and controversial. However, this behavior may also stop him from becoming more popular, meaning his self-promotion remains in a precarious position. As seen in the comments section, it’s also possible that this time, he went too far in terms of annoying people.
