Warner Bros slammed for fat shaming in new Scooby-Doo movie as a 'cursed' Daphne morphs from a size 2 to a 'horror of horrors' size 8

Warner Bros has come underfire for 'fat shaming' with its latest installment of the hit cartoon series Scooby-Doo.

In its new direct-to-video release, Frankencreepy, the female lead Daphne Blake gets 'cursed' during an adventure in Pennsylvania and is horrified to see her body morph from a size 2 to a size 8.

Many viewers have criticized Warner Bros for the plot line, loosely based on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, stating that it sends the wrong message about body image to children, especially when the average dress size among American women is reported to be a 14.

Some have also suggested that Daphne's new shape looks far bigger than a size 8.
