In brief: Depends
We all face social problems and there are no particular social problems associated with being obese.
However people may face social problems based on a lot of factors like being obese or too thin, too tall or too short, white, black, yellow or red and on and on. Any of these can become a problem or not depending on how we view ourselves and cope with these factors relative to those around us.
