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.
