Overweight chef denied work visa?

This was on eater.com this morning. Apparently a South African chef that has been working in New Zealand for years was denied his work visa for being too fat. (Despite being thinner than he was when he came to the country 6 years ago. Apparently he does not meet "an acceptable standard of health."
