News anchor goes on air to slam viewer who called her too fat for TV10/2/2012
Wisconsin newscaster Jennifer Livingston knows people in the public eye make easy targets, but today she fought back against one commenter who had sent her an email criticizing her for her weight. The letter accused Livingston of not promoting a healthy lifestyle on TV, a "responsibility" of hers as a public personality. After Livingston's husband, a fellow WKBT anchor in La Crosse, Wisc., posted the email on his Facebook page, support for Livingston began flooding in, so much so that she decided to address the issue herself. In her segment, she acknowledged she was, in fact, overweight, but said she was more than just a number on a scale and implored young victims of bullying to remain strong.
Do you think enough is being done to fight bullying?
