American Idol Fan Says Show Removed Her From Front Row Because She Was “Too Fat”
So, you get free tickets to see American Idol in person! Pretty cool, right? Nineteen-year-old Ashley Kauffman from Riverside, Calif. thought so…before getting insulted by one the show’s “audience wranglers” and sent to the back row!
Ashley was told she was “too big” to sit in the front row! Not that it should make a difference, but what’s considered “too big?” Read on…
“She (an Idol audience wrangler) looked at me and said: ‘Oh no, you’re too big, too heavy to be in front!'” Ashley told MailOnline
Ashley is 5’2″ and weighs 150 lbs. Instead of the front row, she was sent to the back! Poor girl. Pretty ridiculous what happened to her.
My guess is it happens more than we’d think at TV tapings.
