You have the upper hand here, even if you don't realise it!!

Fat is not a "protected class" (meaning there is no such thing legally as a "fat hate crime").

There is a hate crime related to sexuality though (and him assuming you have AIDS could be interpreted that way!)

Go to HR and put in a complaint about what he said to you. He will be in some serious trouble for saying that!! Waaaay more so than what you said to him!!

No kidding. Any HR person with half a clue would shit their pants if they heard how this went down. I'd advise HR that if the complaint against you isn't withdrawn and your complaint acted on that you will take legal action. These dumb fucks just made a MAJOR screwup.

THIS!! Not only that but against disabled as well, and if you did have a health condition how shameful that would be.

Shoot some states have things about HIV specifically too.

Ooooh, I wasn't entirely sure about the disability hate crime aspect! I wasn't 100% that it applied in this situation unless he genuinely does have HIV.

As you know though, I'm not from the US so I'm not always aware of what legal rights you guys have!
