A Chubby Guy Got Shamed on Twitter . . . So 1,700 Women Are Throwing Him a Dance Party

Someone in England posted two photos on Twitter last month of an overweight guy dancing at a club. The caption said, “Spotted this specimen trying to dance . . . he stopped when he saw us laughing.”

It turns out the guy’s name is Sean, and he’s from London. In the first photo he’s dancing, and in the second he’s just staring at the floor looking sad. (We’re not sure about his age, but he looks like he’s in his early 30’s.)

But shaming him online totally backfired: Cassandra Fairbanks and Hope Leigh are part of a women’s group in L.A. that throws events, and the photos made them angry . . . so they decided to do something about it.

They offered to fly Sean to L.A. for a dance party with their 1,700 members. A company called Discover L.A. is going to cover his travel expenses . . . the L.A. Coliseum is going to host it for free . . . and Pharrell, Moby, and Andrew W.K. have all offered to perform.

Someone started a GoFundMe page too. And as of last night they’d raised over $35,000. Any money left over goes to an anti-bullying campaign.

A Kid Stood in the Background of a News Report, and Showed Off His Embarrassing Dance Moves

On Thursday night, a reporter in Las Vegas was doing a story on a new shopping center. And one of the people behind her was a kid who wouldn’t stop showing off his embarrassing DANCE moves.

It was actually half-dancing, and half-posing like he was on a catwalk or something. Then apparently someone in the crowd annoyed him, because he shot a nasty look their way . . . then went right back to dancing.
