TV Anchor’s Great Response To Being Called Fat

An anchor for CBS News received a very hurtful email that focused on her weight, calling her out for being a bad role model for young girls. She showed the email to her husband, who posted it on Facebook. Immediately, the email received a huge outcry of support, and the anchor, Jennifer Livingston, decided to make a public comment. She started by reading the email, and then said what all girls have felt at one time or another: “You don’t know me. You know nothing about me besides what you see on the outside, and I am much more than a number on a scale.” Watch the video for the rest of her uplifting response.
