TV anchor responds to her bully on the air
(via Raw Story
On Tuesday, Jennifer Livingston, morning anchor for LaCrosse, Wisconsin’s WKBT, took a moment to call a viewer who wrote in about her weight a “bully” and thank readers for their “inspiring” support. The viewer wrote to Livingston on Friday, in an email with the heading “Community Responsibility.” “It’s unusual that I watch your morning show, but I did so for a very short time today. I was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition hasn’t improved for many years,” he said. “Surely you don’t consider yourself a suitable example for this community’s young people, girls in particular. Obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain.” “You don’t know me, you’re not a friend of mine. You’re not a part of my family and you have admitted that you don’t watch this show.” she said. “So you know nothing about me but what you see on the outside, and I am much more than a number on a scale.” She went on to say that she believes that there is something for everyone to learn here. October is National Anti-Bullying Awareness Month. Bullying, she said, is an issue that extends through all of our schools and all levels of society.
