Tampa-based Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) and a number of organizations -- including the American Board of Obesity Medicine -- submitted formal letters to the leaders of Amazon, Apple, Google, and Microsoft on Wednesday. The letters ask that the companies remove fat-shaming apps the groups deem offensive.
The apps -- among them Fatify, Fatbooth and Fat You! -- allow users to upload photos of themselves and to manipulate how big the face gets. They're also approved for minors to download in the app store.
