NY Daily News: Angry Marie Claire readers are protesting the magazine's recent blog post maligning overweight people by staging a "Big Fat Kiss-in" in front of the Hearst tower near W. 57th St. in Manhattan.

The Hearst Tower

"Marie Claire chose to publish an essay in which the author shares her utter disgust for fat people - but moreover - physical displays of affection between said fat people," an organizer wrote on Facebook.

The blog, entitled "Should Fatties Get a Room (even on TV?)" has sparked online fury from readers aghast that Marie Claire, known for championing body-positive issues, would publish a post that expressed such contempt for the obese.
