Report: Overweight teen moved out of the front row at American Idol

The headline:  ‘Idol’ accused of weight bias; show denies claim

The summary:  A teenager who was in the audience for an American Idol taping claims she was barred from a front row seat because of her weight.  The show denies the charge.

The reaction:  Sounds like a classic case of he said-she said.  Judging by this article alone, it doesn’t sound like weight or size was the issue.  Even the girl in her group didn’t hear a single insult.

I doubt anything will come of this.  I watched countless episodes of Idol before and I seem to recall seeing all sorts of people sitting up front so I’d be surprised if they chose now to start being image-conscious.
