Some people can change their opinions based on new information, others can't. Understand it is very difficult for people that have invested so much of who they are in a certain world view to discard that. Better said in this well known quote:

"When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either quit being mistaken, or cease to be honest.".

If this was posted there, there would be mental gymnastics to dismiss it, count on it. I personally do find fat people extremely ugly, I admit I have a bias against them but I don;t hate them, I also know there are certainly issues that make it much harder for some to loss weight than others, so land whales do need to work harder than many. As long as people keep researching this, hopefully they get some help because not only are they doing harm to themselves but putting a burden on our medical facilities.
