Is SuperSize Me a Con?
— Posted by John Campea
According to THIS website, the details laid out in the now popular film Supersize Me may not be accurate.
Is this a conspiracy theory of “valid testimonies” to discredit the now tubby film subject?? Consider also that Spurlock once ran a short lived TV series called “I Bet You Will,” which paid contestants money to performing disgusting culinary acts like eating live cockroaches.
An interesting article at Tech Central Station sure makes me wonder.
In a nutshell “He sends a terrible message to America: Obesity is not your responsibility. It’s the fault of greedy corporations….Spurlock believes that moviegoers are dumb enough to think that it’s McDonald’s that made him fat — rather than the amount of food he consumed and his slothful habits.”
Maybe its the “slothful habits” that were under attack by this documentary, not McDonald’s fatty foods.
Not saying this film is a total scam, but there is some controversy.
