Anchorwoman: Viewer Criticizing Her Weight ‘Bully’ [VIDEO]


YouTube video

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) — A television anchorwoman in western Wisconsin says a man who wrote her an email criticizing her weight is a bully.

Jennifer Livingston responded to the email Tuesday morning during a 4-minute segment on WKBT-TV in La Crosse. She’s telling young viewers not to allow bullies to define their self-worth.

Livingston didn’t identify the man, who wrote that he was surprised to see her physical condition hadn’t improved for years. He wrote that he hopes she doesn’t consider herself a suitable example for young people, especially girls.

Livingston says she thought nothing of the email. But she’s angry that some children may not know to do the same when they’re criticized, or worse, by bullies.

She’s urging children who get picked on not to let bullies define them.
