People of London were absolutely horrified to see these buttons with the words "Tube chat?" popping up all over the place. The source, according to Mashable, turned out to be a man named Jon Dunne and his wife, both from small towns in America and now living in London. He told them, "I thought it would be way more fun [but] it was sort of brutal." 

No kidding, the response to #tubechat has been hilarious but not very welcoming.

A 5 year old girl noticed that there are plenty of police dogs, but not any police cats and she wanted to know why. So she wrote to her local police headquarters to get answers. The chief responded with a sweet note and a drawing of his own cat for good measure. Yeah, this story is adorable.

National Health Services (NHS) worker Kara Florish took to Twitter to document receiving a body-image shaming business card on London's Underground.

The card, which states to be from a group called "Overweight Haters Ltd", reads "fat" in large letters on one side. The other side contains a paragraph with a description of the "organization".

Writer Sean Thomas Knox witnessed a similar, separate body-shaming card incident, and tweeted about it's authenticity.



British Transport Police on Twitter are asking anyone with any information to get in touch with them.
