no, it's companies like McDonald's that are insensitive to overweight people by trying to push unhealthy food on everyone.

No. Because it was not really directed at overweight people. It was meant to draw attention to the plight of the creatures on this planet who are suffering. You know, metaphorically speaking, humans have a lot of "blubber" around their spiritual heart. They don't feel the pain of others. I think something that has enough shock value to grab a person's attention and direct it toward human or animal suffering is in general a good thing.

Not necessarily.

A lot of people do gain excess weight from eating meat and it often leads to serious health problems. Obesity has become an epidemic in the U.S.

Blubber could also be referring to animal fat. As in, don't eat someone else's fat.
