A Malaysian fashion critic has been on the receiving end of  a lot of heat after suggesting people who weight more that 60kgs should not attend  catwalk shows, the Metro reported.

"Your thighs are spilling over onto the chairs on your left and right," Zaihani Mohd Zain is quoted as saying in a now deleted Facebook post by the Malay Mail.
 
"It's so awkward and uncomfortable for the persons seated next to you!" she went on to say.
