Ok, So This Is Disgusting On A Multitude Of Levels....

I'll let the article from the NY Daily News speak for itself.

It’s not easy staying slim and beautiful over the holidays.

About 5,000 members of a popular dating site found that out the hard way, when they were booted from BeautifulPeople.com - the site is a dating and networking site for attractive individuals that has a "ban on ugly people" - for putting on a few pounds over the holidays.

"As a business, we mourn the loss of any member, but the fact remains that our members demand the high standard of beauty be upheld. Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which
BeautifulPeople.com was founded," Robert Hintze, founder of BeautifulPeople.com, said in a statement.

So how did these "fatties" get flagged? Other members, angry that the now-plumper members were still on the site, demanded action from the company.

"We responded to complaints by moving the newly chubby members back to the rating stage. This is the same as having them re-apply," Greg Hodge, managing director of BeautifulPeople.com, said in a statement.
The company sent an email telling the members that they would need to reapply when they had lost the holiday chunk.

"Their re-applications were reviewed by existing members and only a few hundred were voted back in. Over 5,000 were rejected," Hodge added.

The United States had the most members who got the boot (1,520), followed by the U.K. (832) and Canada (533).
"The USA has been grossly over-indulging since Thanksgiving - it's no wonder that so many members have been expelled from the network. We hope they will be back after shedding the festive pounds," Hodge said.
These are the douchebags that started the website. I am SO sorry about your penises, guys...truly.

Wow!! Where are the beautiful people in this picture? If we want...We could point out the douche bag hair style and the huge ears on the dickhead on the right and the piggy nose on the dick on the right and oh lets not forget his droopy eye. Ugh...I hate people like this. I would rather have a not so perfect person in my life than some douche bag like them. Besides I am Sicilian I like to cook and I love to watch you eat what I make for you LOL...
