Even though he is so fat, to have a father who is always by his side is a blessing/happiness.


Seen his JJ yet? How come his JJ is not proportionally sized? How does he ML? Please forgive me.


I have always believed that people who are fat because of overeating have too little self-control, and is extremely shameful (excluding fat caused due to genes or medicine). Those who allow them to eat are also extremely irresponsible! I have seem a teenage boy whose eyes are only slits [because he is so fat], and his mother was just next to him watching him eat fried snacks, the mother herself being rather slim. With her son being fat like that, how can she not be concerned?


He has a wife and child? Hehe, this woman is truly courageous.


He’s rather pitiful, [so] don’t maliciously laugh. I hope he can quickly and successfully lose fat, and begin a normal life.


That photo of him eating scared me…just one meal was more than two days for me!!!


Fatherly love and motherly love is always the most true/real, and the most touching!


How come we don’t see his wife taking care of him, but rather his old man?


Being this fat, isn’t the ultimate reason because of laziness? If he discovered himself becoming fat early on, then he should have persisted in exercising, and if he had an appropriate diet then he definitely wouldn’t be like this now.


Just one of his meals is even more than a meal for 4 people in my office! How could he not become fat? He’s simply a fat pig!


This person, I don’t know what to say, maybe he’s all too happy to get on television. At first, CCTV reported on him many times, and he became famous, even becoming a spokesperson for pig feed. Later, he said he did not want to lose weight, wanting to rely on his fat to earn money, sigh!! What use is money when you’re almost dead!! People cannot be like him, a good for nothing, no willpower, insatiable, only knowing to eat, truly no different from a pig. I already know about this person 4.5 years ago. I can only say, what happens next is his fault. This time he loses weight, next time he’s fat again, it is like watching a joke!!!


[He] has a wife? And a child?? NB, not crushing [his wife] to death while ML, could that woman be on the weightlifting team???? And his belly being that big, how long must his JJ be for it to penetrate [her]???? Losing 22kg in two weeks, damn, how come I can’t lose that much?


He indulges himself, becomes a burden to his family, is not a good son, not a good husband, not a good father, would eating less kill you!? A 30-year-old man, instead of being an upright man, is instead a freak, a burden on the family, a burden on society. Despise…


This fatty is comparable to the great Party, eating too much, itself starting to have problems, but the hospital still won’t let it die!


Let him see the bill every day and I think he’ll slim down a bit quicker.

Do you remember Brother Inspiration? chinaSMACK personals.
