Stars: They're Nothing Like Us (Or Are They?)

Think all celebrities get the royal treatment? Well think again. There are actually two classes of stars -- or maybe several classes of stars that kind of boil down into two categories - skinny bitches and fatty mcfatfats. If you are a star who falls into the skinny bitches category, not only will get away with just about anything, people will actually encourage your bad behavior (I'm thinking Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, etc.). However, if you are a fatty mcfatfat, I'm sorry to say that you are only about a half step above regular people. And that half step only accounts for the fact that people know your name well enough to make fun of you (I'm looking at you, Kirstie Alley).

Case in point: Kevin Smith

Kevin Smith is too fat to fly. According to a CNN article, the man behind the Jay and Silent Bob phenomenon of the late '90s/early 2000s was kicked off of a Southwest flight for being a fattie who could not lower the armrests on his seat. Even though he had purchased two tickets, they still kicked him off and only gave him a $100 voucher as compensation. So how can our chunky celeb friends fight back? Why the power of the media of course! Despite our general disgust at any famous person who is bigger than a size 2, everyone loves a chubby star discrimination story! Because when it all boils down, we just can't get behind the unfairness of a lack of special treatment for celebrities.

    Plus he has round glasses!
    Plus most people like it when I raise the arm-rests on a plane because then we can snuggle!
