Well yes that was an overreaction. But I think people tend to get angrier than they're not what the majority would want as preference. Since many guys prefer the shorter guys and she clearly doesn't fit what many like, hence why she's angry. Same when a shorter guy gets upset... since he's not what many girls would prefer, etc.
I guess people don't like it if someone else reminds them that they like what's more common; hence why a stereotype is made.

"I've also come across people on GAG getting upset when a person says they're not attracted to black girls or something like black guys dating whites girls."
saying anything even remotely close to this will get you a good handful of downvotes. Usually, me just saying that i don't pursue black women that much anymore (even though id still date one) tends to get me downvoted quite a bit... yet a lot of these girls tend to have preferences of their own (sometimes racial ones too). It's a funny world we live in
