A Facebook page shaming northern California residents for their weight has been taken down after generating significant attention and criticism.

The page, named "530 Fatties" featured photos of overweight people living within the 530 area code. CBS 13 in Sacramento first reported the story after being contacted by several people who had been featured on the site.

Most of the photos appear to have been taken in public, while the person targeted was completely unaware that he or she was being photographed.

CBS 13 reportedly attempted to call the phone number listed as page administrator, but the line was disconnected. The address listed for the page was one number higher than the address for the Yuba City Walmart.
