Discrimination against Obese Women and Girls is Not Okay

Recently someone shared with me a video going viral featuring Jennifer Livingston, an overweight anchor on Wisconsin’s WKBT.  It really disturbed me to watch then as I pondered it more it broke my heart to witness the pain while she reported about being bullied by a viewer via a letter.  After viewing the video fully twice,  I would not classify the letter as bullying but who I am to say that classifaction is wrong.  It didn’t happen to me yet what I would consider it is clearly discrimination by a male viewer in regards to why Livingston should not be on camera based on her weight.
