A Wisconsin news anchor for WKBT-TV, Jennifer Livingston was subjected to fat shaming via a viewer who thought that her appearance needed criticizing. Livingstonâ€™s husbandâ€“also an anchor was so upset about the viewerâ€™s comments that he posted it the stationâ€™s Facebook page. This viewer isnâ€™t the first, nor the last to complain about someone elseâ€™s weight. Iâ€™m curious about societyâ€™s disdain for fat and more specifically fat women. Why is our very existence an issue?
