WKBT anchor Jennifer Livingston, from La Crosse, Wisonsin, responded to a letter she received chiding her for not being a ‘suitable example for this community’s young people’
The letter from unknown read:-
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 local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle.
So do you agree? I think the planet is being weighted down due to unhealthy eating habits.
Maybe subconsciously we all do discriminate one way or the other against morbidly obese people?
According to Wiki a bmi above 25 may indicate the person is overweight; a person may have a BMI below 18.5 due to disease; a number above 30 suggests the person is obese (over 40, morbidly obese).
