Shameful Seating for the Obese Installed on Brazilian Subway

As if overweight people don’t already feel self-conscious enough about their size, now special fat seats have been installed for them on Brazilian subways.

Labeled "priority seating for obese people," the vibrant blue seats are almost twice as wide as normal chairs and can support passengers weighing up to 550lbs.

It comes as no surprise that the seats are being ignored by obese passengers, with Metro bosses in Sao Paulo admitting that overweight people are probably too ashamed to use them.
