600-pound man evicted because of his weight?

 A 600-pound Conn. man claims his landlord is evicting him and his mom because of his weight.
25-year-old Joey Dibendetto lives with his mother Debbie Verab in a walk-up apartment in New Haven, Conn.
He is always on oxygen and can hardly move at all, except when he does when move, he damages the apartment.

And he believes that is why he is being forced out of the apartment.
Plywood covers a hole Dibendetto says he put in the floor with his foot.
His mother says its been unfixed for a few months.
The floor and tub are sinking in the bathroom and the family says the toilet doesn't flush anymore. (yikes)
Apparently, the eviction has nothing to do with any rent issues, the family has paid it on time every month. 
Instead there are violations that no one wants to talk about.
Dibendetto says the family has not been given enough time to find a new place to live.
