Jennifer Livingston, Wisconsin TV news anchor, takes on her bully
This week’s rant is solely directed to the imbecile who decided to tell Jennifer Livingston, Wisconsin news anchor, she was a poor role model. This “man” knew nothing about her, yet decided it was prudent to lecture the mother on her “bad habits.” What was more troubling was when ABC News got an exclusive interview with him on Saturday (ABC News exclusive interview with bully). In the interview he admits he was overweight as a child and didn’t mean to insult the news anchor. As someone who was once overweight he should have realized that most “fat” people know they are overweight. We aren’t dumb!
There are many factors as to why people are overweight. Being “fat” does not make one any less of a role model for children than a “skinny” news anchor. Livingston brilliantly told her bully the truth of his stupidity. In a 4 minute segment (Livingston video) she explained that this man doesn’t know her. He doesn’t even watch the show. And most importantly she isn’t defined by a number on a scale. This “man” fails to realize comments like those are irresponsible. Children don’t overeat because they see someone who isn’t deemed “fit” by society on TV. One reason they overeat is because of bullies.
Kenneth Krause, the bully, should simply shut up.
And remember as Livingston so poignantly states:
“We are better than the bullies who put us down….Do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies….The cruel words of one mean nothing compared to the shouts of many.”
