Asshole Who Called Local News Anchor Fat Still Thinks She's Too Fat

After Wisconsin's WKBT News 8 This Morning anchor Jennifer Livingston's impassioned on-air response to a concern-trolly d-bag who emailed her to voice his disappointment that her "physical condition hasn't improved for many years" — aka that she doesn't look how he thinks she should look — went viral yesterday, thousands of people expressed their support and shared their own stories of being bullied for being themselves.


Unfortunately, Kenneth Krause, the "occasional viewer" and full-time asshole who wrote the email (which was titled "Community Responsibility," because he's made out of slime), hasn't been swayed by the wave of support Livingston's received from across the nation. Instead, he released this statement:

Given this country's present epidemic of obesity and the many truly horrible diseases related thereto, and considering Jennifer Livingston's fortuitous position in the community, I hope she will finally take advantage of a rare and golden opportunity to influence the health and psychological well-being of Coulee Region children by transforming herself for all of her viewers to see over the next year, and, to that end, I would be absolutely pleased to offer Jennifer any advice or support she would be willing to accept.


You know what would've actually been inspiring for the "health and psychological well-being" of local children? If Krause had realized the error of his ways. But that seems like wishful thinking at this point.

So, this lady gets PAID to be in the public eye, it is her job. Then when someone in the audience (a customer shall we?) has an honest comment about her and her health, he is suddenly bullying her? Would he be a bully if he told her to quit smoking because it was bad for her health and for the influence she has on kids? Being overweight carries health risks just the same. I'm not saying he's a great guy, but come on! Now we have to bullshit EVERYONE with nice comments or else we are a bully? I'm not a bully, but I won't bullshit you either!
