point" or if he crossed the line. The reason why I'm posting this video is because how the female news anchor responded to the gentlemen. IMO, she
killed him with kindness and she did it by bringing awareness to a issue our country is seeing today...Bullying... With October being anti-bullying
awareness month, its good to see people out there who care to not lash back when they're hurt, but instead they care to educate so these things will
not happen again. Please take a look at the story and video and let me know what you think ATS...

Let me start by saying I DO NOT CONDONE BULLYING !
I watched the YouTube version of the video and I personally found the letter by the man to the news person not offensive or "bullying" as she
insinuated it was. I thought the letter was tastefully written. The man was not demanding money, not pushing her around, not keeping her from doing
If you actually go back and read the context of the letter, it appeared that he has a genuine concern for her health and well being and also making
the point that she is a PUBLIC FIGURE in the area where she works,
and that in general, media people who get in front of the camera are not over weight because the MEDIA perception is that you have to be THIN to be
IN. It should be on her mind to be healthy and look as good as possible in front of the camera having said all that, and it appears that her handlers
and she does not care.
That's fine, but she will never make it to the National Level of MEDIA because of her weight. That is a fact.
Its not being mean, but that is the REALITY of the WORLD we all live in. Its the HOLLYWOOD SYNDROME
where you have to be THIN to be IN !
I sense a long history of people talking about her weight to her, which sent her over the edge to reply and respond. She's very sensitive about it
and maybe has not taken the time to do something about it. That is strictly her right and totally up to her. None the less, trying to "BBQ" someone
over a tastefully written letter that addresses the subject is also intolerable.
From a medical point of view, her weight is possibly going to contribute to a whole host of physical ailments and problems, from diabetes to heart
attacks and strokes. None of these issues were even brought up by her in her remarks. I presume she does not care particularly if she has been this
weight for a long time.
Some guys like women with a lot of meat on their bones. The rest do not. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I'm sure her husband is very content with her and I give them both kudos for sticking to it.
My advice to anyone reading this and about to reply, do us both a favor and do not respond if it is negative. It does no one any good.
