An obese influencer who wants to supersize hotels opened up about her ideas in a viral TikTok video posted on Sept. 1.

Jaelynn Chaney, who previously petitioned the U.S. Federal Aviation authority to give fat people free extra plane seats, opined on how “size inclusive hotel amenities” would make hotels “more inclusive and accommodating” to obese individuals.

@jaebaeofficial 🏨 Embracing Inclusivity in Hospitality 🌟 Creating a space where every guest feels valued and comfortable is essential. Size-inclusive hotel amenities are more than just accommodations – they’re a statement of respect for diverse needs and body types. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ From spacious chairs to thoughtful bathroom facilities, every detail matters. Elevators, pool areas, and dining spaces should be designed to ensure ease of movement and relaxation. Let’s make travel truly accessible and welcoming for travelers of all sizes and abilities. 💙⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ #InclusiveHospitality #TravelWithComfort #RespectAndDiversity #PlusSizeTravel #PlusSizeFriendly #InclusiveTravel #AccessibleTravel #SizeFriendly #TravelInclusivity #Fyp ♬ Good Vibes – Rerewrpd

In the video, Chaney argues that hotels should offer beds supporting a higher weight capacity, more spacious hallways and sturdier chairs without armrests. She also proposed size 6XL bathrobes and raised toilet seats.

Chaney stressed that employees should be trained on how to “be respectful, understanding and accommodating” toward “travelers of all sizes.” (RELATED: New York City Bill Outlaws Discrimination Against Fat People)

“The needs of plus-sized travelers matter just as much as anybody else,” Chaney said. “Size-inclusive hotel amenities are crucial for ensuring that plus-sized travelers feel welcomed, accommodated, and comfortable during their stay. We deserve an environment that respects our needs and body diversity.”

Approximately 41.9 percent of adults in the United States are obese as of 2023, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Roughly 19.7 percent of children in the United States suffer from obesity as well.
