Earlier today one of my facebook friends Jerome Cleary shared this photo. [I've removed the photo and replaced it with Maniscalco's apology, it was a photo of a woman who is clearly obese wearing a very short skirt and top that didn't quite cover her stomach. It was clearly not a picture that she had posed for, she was enjoying a snack at an airport. Probably LAX.]

 

Sebastian Maniscalco apologizes

 

His friend Sebastian Maniscalco shared it earlier in the day.

The funny thing about Sebastian Maniscalco is that he is a stand up comic with more than 15,000 fans on facebook. Presumably Sebastian Maniscalco knows what is funny and what is not. We’re supposed to assume that because Sebastian Maniscalco is entertained by mocking complete strangers who are NOT public figures it’s an okay thing to do.

I’m going to go through a few possible scenarios that I’ve come up with in the hours since I saw this photo:

  • This woman has very little willpower and she has gained weight from her lifestyle, on a vacation to Los Angeles she felt sexy, bought a cute pink outfit and at the end of the trip a not very funny stand up comic treated her like garbage. I feel badly for her.
  • This woman used to weigh 400 pounds and has lost a tremendous amount of weight. This outfit was a reward for her fitness and while at LAX she was targeted by the not very funny Sebastian Maniscalco (who I’m hoping will apologize). I feel badly for her.
  • This woman takes prednisone and gained a bunch of weight, she’s enjoying an ice cream because she has a hangover after going to a Sebastian Maniscalco show and being so bored because he is not funny that she drank too much. She’s trying to even out her blood sugar with a yogurt parfait. I feel badly for her.
  • This woman is just happy with herself and Sebastian Maniscalco is not a funny stand up comic (that one is just to entertain me and because I’m feeling punitive… I couldn’t help myself).

As of this writing 23 people have shared this photo and another 79 people liked it. I think they deserve a little shame. I’ve talked about how shame is a good thing in parenting, and I believe it’s a good thing in society. You see, if people are afraid that their asshattery will land them on a blog maybe they won’t be so quick to leave comments like this when they see someone being victimized.

If you recognize any of these people be sure to let them know that they’re being immortalized. Our words are incredibly powerful and it’s important that we have the chance to stand behind them. Here are the comments left on the picture you see above. These are some of the ugliest people on the internet.

    • Michelle Bryant You know what? I’m over weight. I weigh more than I should. I don’t look like her but I’m not going to act like I’m a thin model. I make sure all my stuff is covered up.

    • Sandy Hurtado jajaja..como me encantas Sebastian ! Siempre me haces reir !!

    • Sebastian Maniscalco This photo was posted on some elses face book page. It has nothing to with her size. I was just curious of the outfit she choose to fly. As you well know I do a whole bit about people and how they dress at the airport. It was well documented on the Jay Leno show where I did a Man on Street piece at LAX questioning peoples attire.

    • Sandy Hurtado jajajaja…voy a verte en Arlington TX con unos amigos Sebastian este mes !! I love you !!

    • Susan L Kirk well… maybe if she was wearing the right size??

    • Odette Kennedy I’m trying to figure out if it’s a skirt or a shorts… or something else…
      Maybe she thought it would help her join the mile high club.

    • Andrea Cardinale Really?

    • Melody Joy Colicchio this is AWFUL

    • Jazmin Fuentes Cover up girl ..leave alittle to the imagination

    • Melody Joy Colicchio and she’s in an airport… i wonder who the lucky chap was who got to sit next to her on the plane.

    • Cristina Blanco This can’t possibly be real!?!? I am completely emarassed for this person.

    • Juan Chase Hahahaha she look like the girl from willy wonka

    • Adriana Elizabeth What theeeeeee?! I had to do a quadruple take on this one…. yikes!

    • Vince Fugelsang Its just Her fat lags

    • David Aldi no reason to eat lunch now….

    • Nicole Wilmoth Unmanageable!

    • Josie AmicoTraum Oh Dio Mio…..!!

    • Jamiebeth Grant GROSS!

    • Bruce Altieri I can never eat ice cream again

    • Valerie Wisniewski Hearn Really come on who raised her man!!!!Being a large person I look in the mirror everyday when I dress.

    • Marie Goguen That is so wrong!!

    • Grant Founy big stomach bones ? :P

    • Scott F. Miller What no Jimmies?

    • Kim Hunsinger Are you freaking kidding me?!!!

    • Leah Segedie You are all one major sickness away from being overweight yourselves. Laughing at her because of her size just shows me how sad all of you are. What if she suffered from sexual abuse as a child and has an eating disorder from it? Would you think that was funny? Careful what you laugh at. Karma is a bitch y’all.

    • Jessica Wilzig Gottlieb I’ll take my post down when you take this picture down…. maybe.

    • Chantilly Patiño ‎1) Absolutely ridiculous that you took this picture and 2) didn’t even take the time to conceal this woman’s identity. Who gave you the right!?

    • Carrie Gardner Two words: COVER UP

    • Adriana Lopez Come on … really !!!

    • Jen Doherty Pretty terrible that you would help spread a picture around to collect insults for someone who is a HUMAN BEING. You should be ashamed…comedian or not…this is not funny.

    • Rose Latka Wow. I just read about this on Jessica Wilzig Gottlieb‘s blog and had to check it out for myself and here it is, a public post humiliating an innocent girl obviously suffering from a slew of issues. My heart breaks for this girl, and I really hope she NEVER finds out about this post…. Who knows, maybe she has, has anyone checked the suicide reports yesterday, as something this humiliating could bring a person to that. Sebasstian, you really are an ass and I have to ask, with all of your good looks and media presence, is this really how you choose to leave your mark on the world? I hadn’t heard of you before and now will forever remember you as the egocentric, insecure talentless asshole, named Sebasssstian, who gloats in the limelight of other insecure losers hard up for a “laugh”.

    • Mariellen Wood And none of you have EVER done ANYTHING that would embarrass you if someone took a picture of it and posted it online? What she chooses to wear and what she chooses to eat is NONE of anyone’s business. If you don’t like how she looks, DON’T LOOK! Simple as that. You’re all asshats and douchecanoes for ragging on a stranger for her choice of clothing/food just because YOU don’t like it. Get over yourselves and get a life.

    • Rose Latka I wish Oprah or some other big name would do a small segment on internet bullies and expose everyone of you meanies to the world.

    • Mari Harju Because mocking people for their bodies is soooo funny and edgy. Ugh. You’re disgusting for posting this with the intent of mockery.

    • Jaime Mukherjee this girl is a human being And deserves some respect. You don’t have to Like her body or her clothes but you do need to show some human decency and leave her be.

    • Tasha Niemi what posses people to be out in public like that.

    • Atchka Fatty What posses people to talk bad?

    • Eric Braun I agree Tasha…cover up

    • Mari Harju Except.. you don’t know where this picture has been taken.

    • Tasha Niemi Im not saying anything about her size. I am a big girl too, but I dress accordingly

    • Ludmilla Utter Didja mean “possesses” Tasha? And are you implying she needs to be hidden away because YOU don’t like how she is dressed? My my, I bet the majority of you are fun to be friends with….

    • Boombands Em Wow, Sebastian – I’d never heard of you before this and will probably never see any of your comedy or hear of you again. What I do know is that you took this from someone else’s FB page and posted it – hoping for reaction. Not a positive reaction either – you’ve posted this to laugh at someone, you don’t know and have no right to try and humiliate. Basically – as someone who didn’t know you before this – all I know now is that you are pretty much a bullying, mean arsehole. Great first impression, man. Well done you.

    • Mary Baird Tasha– “accordingly” means what, exactly? “According” to a fear that if you dress a certain way people will ridicule you? Doesn’t seem fair to me.

    • Atchka Fatty Tasha, again, if she was thin and wearing this outfit, would that be considered “accordingly”?

    • Tasha Niemi If she was thin I would still say the same thing. A skirt that short is fine for the club or whatever, but not the airport or other such places. Her size has nothing to do with it.

    • Ludmilla Utter Who died and made you the fashion god? The only arguments I make for appropriate dress is for court. But it doesn’t matter thin or fat. OP posted a picture with hopes of getting people to snark and humiliate this girl. What a great guy

    • Rebecca Jane Weinstein You know what does have to do with size? Sebastian Maniscalco has a 3 inch penis. If only that were a joke …
