News Anchor Responded To Viewer Who Called Her Fat

Jennifer Livingston is a news anchor from CBS WKBT. During a normal day at work, she received a berating letter from a viewer calling her obese.

The person wrote an email to her saying that she is overweight. And that Livingston is not acting as a role model for people in her community because of it.

The person goes on to say that “obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain.”

In response to the letter, Livingston took a few minutes of air time to address the email she received.

She says the letter was hurtful and basically created to bully her.

She goes on to say:

“You don’t know me. You are not a friend of mine. You are not a part of my family. And you have admitted that you don’t watch this show. So you know nothing about me but what you see on the outside. And I am much more than a number on a scale.”

“October is National Anti Bullying Month,” she adds.

Then she speaks directly to the man saying, “If you are at home and talking about the fat news lady, guess what? Your children are probably going to go to school and call someone fat.”

She hopes that her response to the email will bring awareness to bullying behavior.

What do you think of the email and Livingston’s response?

    The freedom to express what we feel was implied by the viewer, I think there’s nothing wrong with that. LOL The newscaster had just over reacted that she was bullied.
