Too Fat For New Zealand

33-year-old Rowan Trezise planned to move to New Zealand with her husband, but was told she was too fat. The British woman along with her husband tried to get into the country for residence, but were told they were too fat and could be a burden on their health care system. 
 
Rowan's husband lost the weight and was allowed into the country where he got a job as a technician. Rowan had to stay behind in Britian.
 
New Zealand assess weight based on people's Body Mass Index. They said,

"The immigration department can't afford to import people who are going to be a significant drain on our health resources. You can see the logic in assessing if there is a significant health cost associated with this individual and that would be a reason for them not coming in."

Rowan hopes to lose the weight by Christmas, so she can be reunited with her husband.

My question is what about people that are too skinny or smokers? They could be a burden on the health care system too. Not all fat fucks have health issues. That means most Americans better not even think of moving to New Zealand.

That's cold. I'd hate to be the bitch that has to tell someone, "Sorry you're too fat to live here. NEXT!" Actually, that might be kind of fun.
