This is how you troll
 
2012-10-02 11:56:40 AM  
Ok, which one of you Farkers sent that email to her? Liters, i'm looking at you.
 
2012-10-02 12:02:37 PM  
Small town newscasts are hilarious.

All I saw was three seconds of a Honda commercial before I closed the link.

And that letter was very professional and reasonable.

BUT POINTING OUT THAT OBESITY IS A PROBLEM AND SHE IS A PUBLIC FIGURE IS TOTALLY BULLYING GUYS
 
2012-10-02 01:19:40 PM  
I think it's cool that she turned that negative experience around and did something positive and helpful with it. But was that really bullying? Sounded like the email was the just the typical work of some judgemental fark, bolstered by the relative safety and anonymity of the internet. Polite in tone, yes, but many concern trolls can pull that off.

Still, good on her. And I hope whoever wrote that is embarrassed (which is doubtful).
 
2012-10-02 01:20:53 PM  
Politely expressing a concern doesn't really equate to bullying. Now if the email said "GET OFF THE SCREEN YOU FATTY FAT BLUBBER MASS OF OBESE VOMIT", then she might have a better case about standing up to bullying.
 
2012-10-02 01:25:40 PM  
I totally didn't read that letter as bullying. It looked more like a carefully-worded letter of concern for her health/weight, and the influence it might be having on impressionable youth.

Putting it on the air and turning it around as an attack? That's bullying.

Fatty McFatty Fats says "It's ok to be a slob and eat unhealthy, because if someone says anything they are just being a bully. So go ahead and suck down that milkshake and supersize that order."

Oh Snap!
 
2012-10-02 01:41:42 PM  
I'm no lightweight; I've received my share of "fat jokes" just as I dole out as many "blonde jokes".

With all that being said, I think the original letter was very concise and to the point. And while I don't necessarily agree with his point of view - really, is her weight that much of a concern for him? Moreso than the hundreds of other "fatties" he and his children see on a daily basis? - I don't see his letter as "bullying" in any way, shape, or form. If he had written to her and been all, "HA HA YOU'RE A FATTIE MCFATTERSON, YOU GIANT COW!" then yes, it would have been bullying. But that letter? No.

Is bullying a major issue in society today? Yes, absolutely. But telling someone an opposing viewpoint from your own and being respectful about it is NOT bullying.
 
2012-10-02 01:43:47 PM  
The video is 4:20 long, I had to get a snack when it was done.
 
2012-10-02 01:45:40 PM  
So basically...

Expressing concern about obesity = bullying.
Ignoring and supporting health problems = inspiring.


Got it.
 
2012-10-02 01:48:19 PM  
To be fair, Obesity has done far more harm to individuals and families than bullying.
 
2012-10-02 01:48:59 PM  
She's not bad looking but tldnw
 
2012-10-02 01:51:06 PM  
Umm.... i agree with the guy that wrote the letter, and i don't see it as bullying at all.
 
2012-10-02 01:56:44 PM  
At least wearing black provides a slimming appearance..........usually.
 
2012-10-02 01:56:54 PM

I hope it was a healthy snack... YOU TUB OF LARD, YOU DISGUST ME
 
2012-10-02 02:02:58 PM  
So I guess she is going to stay fat?

/not bullying
 
2012-10-02 02:14:17 PM  
Yeah, she's way off base. The letter was polite, and discussed an issue that is a real problem in the west right now. Instead of simply replying to him privatly, or even better just ignoring it...she is now a rally point for those who've jumped on the "fat acceptance" movement. But it's wrong to accept you are fat. Fat is unhealthy and it takes its toll not only on the individual but on society as well as we have to cover those health costs...
She is a public figure, and she is obese...and traditionally, little girls see the women on tv as role models, especially the ones with a professional job. So, yes, the message is that fat is ok.

She needs to not accept it, and hit the gym. She can afford it.

Losing weight would be caving in to bullying.
 
2012-10-02 02:25:59 PM  
That would be a very bad place to get the news if all she does is talk about her personal life. I mean, from the clip she said the guy doesn't watch her show, and knows nothing about her. Geez, take it as a wake-up call and hit the gym if you want to tell this guy off properly.
/assuming it was a guy. girls can get pretty catty too
 
2012-10-02 02:27:49 PM

That still gives you 21:40 to get to the gym
 
2012-10-02 02:32:21 PM  
All the comments supporting her on that page are so full of rainbows and unicorns. Someone needs to start trolling that.

Letter was not bullying, she just wanted to bring attention to her fat ass being fat.

Go be fat somewhere else.

Speeding is unhealthy... fire anyone with speeding tickets? It's just accepting of their poor dangerous driving.
Depression is unhealthy... fire anyone with clinical depression?
Diabetes is unhealthy... fire anyone with diabetes?
 
2012-10-02 02:39:51 PM  
That's a pretty impressive wide angle lens they're using.
 
2012-10-02 02:40:28 PM  
The pinhead letter writer has thrust some 'moral judgements' about what a newscaster 'should' be (by his definition) If she were a dietician, I'd be slightly more inclined to cut him some slack.

Maybe it's a good thing she DOESN'T look like all the scrawny waifs we see on TV - maybe it's much ado about nothing, but it was a personal attack on her body-type and that has no bearing on him really.

No one is calling for her to be fired.

She has a pretty face, if she lost a hundred or so pounds, I'd probably tap it.

I'd have to push all the leftover, excess skin out of the way, first.
 
2012-10-02 02:51:11 PM  
On a doctor's chart?

They make them that big?

Loose some weight fatty.

No, not fired... I guess a TV news anchor can still do her job even if she isn't in front of the camera. Kinda like that actor guy who was in all those movies but was never seen on screen.
 
2012-10-02 03:02:07 PM  
That was a fairly mild email. I'm not condoning it, but the headline gave me the impression that the bully was calling her a fatty, fat, fark that couldn't keep her chubby fingers off of fried foods.

Did you even pay attention to what was written?

"Hi Jennifer,

It's unusual that I see your morning show, but I did so for a very short time today. I was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition hasn't improved for many years. Surely you don't consider yourself a suitable example for this community's young people, girls in particular. Obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain. I leave you this note hoping that you'll reconsider your responsibility as a public personality to present and promote a health lifestyle."

Yeah, that totally says "resign fatty"

Must've been the first time she's received a message of a personal nature from a total stranger. She seemed more offended that somebody didn't mind their own business, and found a convenient way to spin this into a human-interest piece on anti-bullying month. I'm sure she'll be praised for her inspiring courage or whatever, but this is overreacting AW-ing, IMO.

The issue that was taken is that's she's not a role model for others, especially for young girls and her three daughters. Her husband was the one who was the most pissed, which is understandable. Media people get hate mail and criticism all the time, it comes with the job.


/Her brother is Ron Livingston of Office Space fame.
//The guy who sent the email is a lawyer and now known as an all around douche bag.

"Hate mail" no.
Criticism? yes.
Valid criticism? yes.

Why is he "now" a known douche? Because he talks with the logic?

Here's why his letter was bullying, even if it was bullying lite - it's none of his goddamn business what her weight is, that's why. If she was on camera eating buckets of lard topped ice cream of constantly doing pieces on gluttony - then that would be something to call out, but simply being overweight does not set "bad example"

While the letter wasn't overtly insulting, it was a very lite version of the sort of bullying that overweight people put up with on a regular basis. Fat people know they were fat, and most of them want to lose the weight, but condescending comments like those in the letter are the type of thing that cause people to develop eating disorders, or to avoid going out in public or to the gym. If you're overweight and go to the gym, instead of "fit" people being supportive, you tend to get people glaring at you like you're going to break all the equipment, and somehow your presence disrupts their ability to function.

Come on people, this is Wisconsin. She isn't Wisconsin fat. She damn sure isn't Wisconsin obese.
 
2012-10-02 03:47:55 PM  

sure haven't: Why is he "now" a known douche? Because he talks with the logic?


The fact that he takes time out of his day to point out to someone who knows they have weight issues to say, "hey, guess what, you're fat" that is what makes him a douche. If he would walk up to someone on the street and say that to people, he'd get the shiat kicked out of him in no time.

There are a lot of things that I don't agree with, but I'm not going around pointing it out.

"hey you, buying cigarettes, that stuff will kill you"
"hey you, using food stamps to buy milk then buying lottery tickets, you're going to stay poor if you keep buying those"
"hey you, pulling up to McDonalds, that shiats gonna clog your arteries"
hey you, wearing those Nike shoes, you know kids made those things, you were over charged, they take away American jobs and you look retarded wearing them"
"hey you, pull up your pants and buy a belt, I don't like seeing your fat ass hanging out in front of me"

These are the sort of things you can't go around telling people just because you have an issue with how they live their life.
 
2012-10-02 03:54:18 PM  
She could have shortened that video considerably by just saying, "Hey asshat, I beat anorexia with a vengeance.. what have YOU done lately other than write an email?!?"

"purchase a high res copy of this video"
