from Star Wars Kid to “Little Fatty” net 小胖网
Posted on by Lyn Jeffery
Jason dubbed him the Chinese Star Wars Kid due to his ubiquity on the PhotoShop spoofing scene in China, but I’m glad to see that the child wasn’t scarred in the way that the original Star Wars Kid was. Indeed, he’s set up his own website. Reader Fergus points us to “Little Fatty Net” 小胖网, which sensibly reminds us that Little Fatty has given netizens plenty of pleasure, and expects to be respected in turn. The site includes:
- Little Fatty’s biography, which reveals that he’s currently 19, lives in Shanghai, and weighs 98 kg. One day someone snapped his photo during a school traffic safety activity and, “Little Fatty’s soulful, eye-catching gaze quickly conquered the hearts of net friends, setting off a crazy flood of Photoshopping and making Little Fatty unwittingly into a star known around the world.”
- a gallery of 90 “Little Fatty” Internet spoofs, from Harry Potter to the Mona Lisa to Brokeback Mountain.
- news and articles on fatness and China, such as “China World’s Number One “Fat” Country”, “Guangzhou Opens First White-collar Fat Women’s Club”, and the horrifying “Corpulent 114 kg 13-year old Abandoned by Father, Wanders to Chongqing,” which shows photos of a naked 13 year old surrounded by crowds.
