Now that Ellen Degeneres has tweeted the link to my video upload, I have disabled all comments because this was by far getting out of hand. Even if you disagree with Jennifer Livingston, no one, I repeat NO ONE is entitled to call her any names regarding her weight! It’s really a shame that something that started as a decent discussion turned into a mud fight. However it’s great that my video upload made at least some of you reflect the still underrated issue of Bullying in the world and even though I’m located in Germany, I’d be thrilled if Ellen would invite Jennifer Livingston to her show (which I love by the way, both, Ellen and her awesome show!). Thank you! ♥

WKBT anchor Jennifer Livingston took a moment during Tuesday’s morning newscast (Oct. 2, 2012) to directly address a recent email she received from a viewer complaining about her weight.

“To the person who wrote me that letter — do you think I don’t know that? That your cruel words are pointing out something that I don’t see?” Livingston asked in response. “You don’t know me. You are not a friend of mine. You are not a part of my family. And you have admitted that you don’t watch this show. So you know nothing about me but what you see on the outside. And I am much more than a number on the scale.”

Livingston went on to say that October is National Bullying Month, and that she hopes her response to the email will serve to raise awareness of bullying behavior, which is “passed down from people like the man who wrote me that email.”

“If you are at home and talking about the fat news lady, guess what? Your children are probably going to go to school and call someone fat,” Livingston said.

Livingston thanked friends, family and colleagues, saying, “I will never be able to thank you enough for your words of support, and for taking a stand against this bully. We are better than that email. We are better than the bullies that will try to take us down.”
