News anchor addresses weight-shaming email on-air

Posted: Updated:

It's a YouTube video that's already going viral: Jennifer Livingston, a news anchor in La Crosse, Wisconsin, takes to the air to call out a viewer who has sent her a bullying email about her weight.

"I was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition hasn't improved for many years," the viewer wrote to the WKBT-TV personality. The person goes on to say that Livingston was not a "suitable example" for young girls. "I leave you this note hoping that you'll reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle."

On Tuesday, Livingston stood up for herself and addressed the email on-air, while also thanking the hundreds of people who have supported her.
