Thousands and thousands of reddit users are absolutely enraged over CEO Ellen Pao's decision to ban several subreddits today, most notably /r/fatpeoplehate, the 13th most active community on the site before its removal. It had more than 100,000 subscribers.
(pictured: the current top 6 posts on reddit.
23 of the top 25 updated: 49 out of the top 50 posts are related to the fallout from this, mostly either posts of Ellen Pao's face on the subreddit "punchablefaces," posts comparing Ellen Pao to dictators, posts demanding that Pao resign, or retaliatory posts making fun of overweight people (all women, of course!))
If you don't know, fatpeoplehate was essentially a hub for losers to post pictures of overweight people, mostly women, and make fun of them, call them horrible names, and belittle them. Just because they get a kick out of calling people "hamplanets." And also because their lives are empty. The ENTIRE SITE is currently full of people getting mad at Pao for banning 5 subreddits that existed solely to harass people. But the only one they're really mad about is fatpeoplehate.
People are also doxxing the imgur staff and posting their pictures and making fun of them because imgur banned posts from fatpeoplehate yesterday before all of this went down.( Collapse )

If anyone wishes to see the absolute mess of garbage currently dominating all of reddit, check it out here. The comments in the posts as well as the posts themselves are INCREDIBLY racist and INCREDIBLY fatphobic. Users are coming together to mass downvote anyone that says anything positive about this decision, or anything negative about fatpeoplehate. That not just a few, but THOUSANDS of people are outraged by this says a lot. This is a big deal.
