Breaking news bullying can happen to anyone, even news anchors. A Wisconsin TV anchor became the story, when she went on air to defend herself after a viewer attacked her for being overweight.
Jennifer Livingston of WKBT received an email from a viewer who complained her size wasn’t a “suitable example” for the community’s young people.
The letter went viral after her husband, a fellow anchor, posted it online.
Livingston addressed the rude viewer on-air.
I have so much respect for this anchor and woman you have no idea. Yes we put ourselves out there as media and you invite us into your home. But that does not give you the right to bully us. You forget that there’s a person in personality. So join me and take a stand against bullying.
What do you think about this anchor taking a stand?
Viewers serve up their thoughts:
Dennis: No one should bully anyone. There’s always a more logical way to handle/approach situations than bullying, it just brings you to their level.
