This Morning viewers slam ‘fat-shamer’ who wants obese passengers to be weighed

This Morning viewers have slammed a fitness guru who wants obese passengers to be weighed at airport check-in.

Fitness writer Danni Levy believes people should be charged according to their weight because they use more fuel.

She applauded the woman who was removed from a United Airlines flight for complaining about sitting between two "big pigs" in a vile rant.

Danni claimed "fat-shaming" can be positive and help people lose weight during a heated debate with plus-size body coach Michelle Bell.

She also clashed with Holly Willoughby, who asked if she should have been charged more when she was pregnant.

Dani said: "I think that you should be charged for the total weight of yourself or your baggage whether you are tall or plus sized. If you are using more fuel you should pay more money."

Holly argued that the additional cost was so minimal that it barely made a difference.

Dani asked: "Holly why are you and I having to pay huge excess baggage costs?"

This appeared to upset the presenter, who did not want to be associated with Danni’s controversial opinions.

Dani said: "At the end of the day if you’re morbidly obese and spilling into someone’s seat, making anther passenger uncomfortable, they should book an extra seat."

Outraged Michelle argued that the person with the problem should be the one to book another seat.

She mocked Dani by sarcastically claiming people would nip to the gym after being fat-shamed.

Michelle explained that flight travel was anxiety inducing for those who are overweight and incidents like on the United Airlines flight added to their woes.
