TV Anchor Responds To An Email Where She Is Called Obese [Video]

Fat Bullied News Anchor

Jennifer Livingston, a TV news anchor, took a moment to reply to an email she received that criticized her for being overweight and setting bad example for kids watching.  The response has blown up on the Internet as a hero for the anti-bullying campaign drawing international attention.

Jennifer admits that she is overweight but that the viewer has no right to point that out to her.

“To the person who wrote me that letter — do you think I don’t know that? That your cruel words are pointing out something that I don’t see?”

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 the scale.”

I personally can’t decide what I’m more disgusted with, the email from the viewer or Jennifer’s dramatic response to an obvious point.  While bullying is bad, obesity is equally as big of a problem that our youth is facing.  The viewer sent her a private email that she took public, so I don’t know if this qualifies as the public shaming that she is making it out to be.

My question is simple.  Was the viewer wrong for expressing his opinion on the message that her image sends, or is she using bullying as an excuse to hide behind?
