Waynesville, MO (CBS46) -

A Missouri candy shop took advantage of "Fat Tuesday" to offer an unusual special to its customers.

The shop gave away free fudge, but with a catch.

The promotion only applied to obese customers weighing more than 300 pounds.

While some have found the promotion offensive, the candy shop's owner, Charley Dill, said that was not his intent.

"We're not trying to make a statement or do anything to offend anyone," said Dill to Missouri TV station KSPR-TV.

"We just thought it was a way to invite people to come in and have a good laugh."
