While she is overweight, the woman is very pretty, IMO. She probably is hypersensitive about her weight because it is OK to bully overweight people now. Everybody does it. Everybody. Maybe she just got tired of it. I applaud her. She could have just ignored it, as I'm sure she's ignored the other 200 that came before this prick's email. Maybe his just got to her in some way.
Besides, people should not be finding role models on TV anyway. She's just on there to report the news. If he doesn't like the way she looks, he can change the channel. Nobody is forcing him to watch her. I have an entire news channel here full of ugly people. I don't watch them. They aren't pleasing for me to look at. Instead of emailing them, though, and saying, "Damn, y'all are ugly. Do something about it," I just change the channel. It's not that hard to do.
The guy was being a gigantic douche nozzle and wanted to force his healthy lifestyle down her throat. Bastards. I hate when people do that, whether it's health nazis, smoke nazis or veganazis.
