Wisconsin News Anchor Responds On-Air To Email Telling Her She’s Too Fat For TV [FBHW]

CBS 8 LaCrosse, Wisconsin

This story is a case of bullying that was broadcast live in Wisconsin.  A news anchor received an email from a viewer about how she is overweight and therefore setting a bad example for the community.  The viewer had many things to say, including this “Surely you don’t consider youself a suitable example for this community’s young people, girls in particular.”  The anchor handled the story profoundly well, and was able to give the viewer a piece of her mind.
