It wasn't about a beauty contest.
    It is okay.

    I agree with that, but it wouldn't have been necessary without the original offense. If someone took a serious feedback opportunity to voice a personal attack on me and mind my business I wouldn't be as professional.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Even with audio and video I wouldn't be able to tell you what she reported.

    No, his point was that by being extremely unhealthy and doing nothing to become healthy over the course of many years, she is a bad role model.

    How many days of work has she missed over the years?

    Do people send emails to supermodels with eating disorders and heroin addictions?

    I agree with the anchor, that he's being a bad role model by being an asshole.

    I shudder when my daughter calls herself "fat." Mostly because she is a skinny and athletic gymnast. But presenting only the ultra skinny, and valuing that, it only propagates the idea that true beauty is in being a size zero.
    I agree with the email, the anchor is a bad role model.

    How am I supposed to know? And what's your point?

    I'm sure they probably get plenty of emails regarding their severe underweight issues.

    Let's try and stay on topic. She is obese and it's unhealthy. Young viewers can point to her and say "It's okay to be obese, look at her." And that's not a positive message.
