A Broadstairs teenager has been hounded off social media after posting a tweet saying women weighing more than eight stone make him "sick" - and should not leave the house.
Edward McEwan - known to his followers as "Ed mac" - tweeted the offensive message just after 1am on Monday.
In the tweet, which appears to have been sent while on a night out, the 19-year-old said: "I'm sorry but if your a girl and weight more than 8stone or taller than 5'8 you shouldn't be out. Too many fattys about making me sick".
