Mean tweets and online comments regarding weight are mean, degrading, and can destroy one's self-image - and they are all too real.

EllipticalReviews.com, sort of a body-shaming watchdog group, analyzed over 17,000 fat shaming tweets sent from across the country to determine if geography plays a factor in online bullying.

Unfortunately, South Dakota came in as the 5th most body-shaming bullies in America. Wyoming is ranked the most offensive and North Dakota comes in at #3.

According to the research, these are the 10 states with the most body-shaming internet bullies:

  1. Wyoming
  2. Vermont
  3. North Dakota
  4. Alaska
  5. South Dakota
  6. Delaware
  7. Montana
  8. Rhode Island
  9. New Hampshire
  10. Maine

Instead of letting someone know they should lose weight, encourage one another to change for a better, healthier person. Otherwise, it's just plain old internet bullying - and we're better than that.
