Being overweight is not always a choice, and it is harder for the women that have children and certain genetic factors to fight this. Very easy for a man to make these statements that he knows nothing about. Instead of attacking those of us who struggle with this problem, why not do some research into the food additives that likely contribute to this? Just stopping eating doesn't work, and these types of negative comments do not help either.

IF it's gluttony and not a medical condition, that would make it between her and God then, P. Jack. NO BULLYING!!!

Really?! Bullying Was Not About Homosexuality. One Of The Earliest Cases Was When A Young Girl Killed Herself For Being Bullied About Her Appearance. Law And Order Actually Wrote An Episode Depicting As Much As They Could About That Incident Which Brought Awareness To Bullies Around The Country! There Were Many Variables To The Anti-Bullying Movement. Lady GaGa And Oprah Has Done Monumental Things In Regards To It. Read More Please. It Would Help To Keep Things In Proper Perspective.

I saw nothing at all in this e-mail that indicated that he was a bully. His letter was polite, while stating his opinion that being in the public eye does make a person an example. Being overweight is unhealthy and is certainly not a good example, for girls especially. We now have an epidemic in this country of Type Two Diabetes in children, something that was absolutely unheard of before, as Type two occurred in adults who had many years of wrong, and unhealthy eating habits.. If Jennifer looked to be an Anorexic, letters would be pourng in by people concerned about her health. In an era of fast food, over indulgence, super-sized everything, this mans letter was certainly a valid issue, and was written with respect, certainly not the "attacker" he has been made out to be. The only bully I see in this situation is Jennifer, who has a "bully pulpit" as she has the advantage of taking this nation wide. She is the one who has unjustly called this man a cruel bully, and escalting this to be something that it was not intended to be by him. She also said that children hear everything that adults say, and take wrong ideas and hurtful words outside the home into school. I am wondering what she thinks that she is doing by wrongfully smearing this mans name, now a national issue, in the mud, with her children hearing every word, as well as mine? We used to have a God given right to have an opinion in this country, but no longer lest someone is offended. Once again I also would like to know why something of this nature is on God-Tube? More and more this venue that once was only used to bring glory to our Savior, and bring the love of God to many who are hurting in this crazy world that is becoming a very hard place to live, a place you knew you could turn to and hear good things about the Lord. Nothing in this issue has up-lifted the Lord to anyone. His name was not even mentioned. I do not know who selects what is allowed on God-Tube, but I pray that they would go back to where it began, a place where the goodness of the Lord could be seen in many ways. This is something that belongs on Youtube, not God-Tube!

He who does not have a speck in his eye let him cast the 1st stone! God sees a perfectly righteous and beautiful woman if she is saved. He loves her and she is His child. God is not so crass as to look at the outward appearance like some mere humans. He is a perfect God w/ perfect love for all of us (unconditionally)!!! I'll be praying for you as now you will probably receive the discipline from God for judging and maligning!

So Many Emotions Arose As She Spoke. I Remembered All The The Nasty Things Said To Me, Especially The Attacks From My Mothers Family and Her Last Spouse, During My Upbringing. I Received ABSOLUTELY NO POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT To Combat All The Ugly I Took In.. Bullies, No Matter Who They Are, Need To Be Shut Down Immediately. The Emotional Damage That Stems From Verbal Bashing Weighs Heavy on The Impressionable Young Community. Imagine What Type People They Will Turn Out To Be. Thank You For Speaking Out Expeditiously. It Needed To Be Addressed. You Are Beautiful. And You Know This Woman.

We must be examples of Christ's love in action, not in criticism. God created each of us with gifts and who is he to tell her how she should live? I don't think what he said is bullying however- I do believe she was right in addressing his remarks. There is nothing wrong with what she said. Attacking someone for their weight is irrelevant to one's moral fabric. We have amazingly beautiful entertainers with awesome bodies- but what is to be said of their character? The content of their music? The graphic shots of film? God wants us to be healthy in all forms but do you think he really cares how much you weigh on the day you die?

I agree with Kelly. People have used social media to say some pretty horrible things to others. This gentlemen had no right to tell her she is a poor example to those in her community. Yes there is an obesity problem in this country, there is also a media driven view of what a women should look like. Woman are saturated with magazines that have skinny girls in them that have been airbrushed to make them look thinner and more beautiful. This news Anchor is showing woman of all sizes that you can be successful what ever size you are. Of course it had to be a man who responded to your comment Kelly, how would he know what it is like to be a woman and the critcism that is given when you put on a few more pounds than you want. I say kudos to the Anchor, maybe her message will help those young ladies feeling not so wonderful about themselves when they look in the mirror and see that beauty comes in many shapes and sizes.

Thank you for sharing. Bullying is bad. Our politicians need to remember this during this tension filled election year. Also, it is important for all those who use facebook as well to be an example as bullying comes in many forms.

Being overweight should not be a reason you cannot be a newscaster. The magazines show lot's of anorexic girls in designer clothes I wonder if he attacks those ladies and in most cases, girls about being bad role models because they are starving themselves to be accepted in a world of models. Her job is to bring us news and information, if she is doing her job well than she is being a good role model of a competent, hard worker. Yes, we believe the bible condemns homosexuality but that still doesn't give us a reason to bully a person for that. I believe that is where she was coming from and in my opinion she was right. Hate the sin, love the sinner, don't bully them.We aren't the ones who transform people that's Gods role. Remember we are to spread the Good News, not pharisaical bullying. Those people in the bible who did the pharisaical bullying had quite the run in with Christ! While we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Think about it, are we getting mad at her for telling people not to be bullies?
