Megyn Kelly Says Women Like Fat Shaming, Twitter Screams

14 January 2018

During a segment with "Fit Mom" Maria King Thursday, the host of NBC's Megyn Kelly TODAY argued "fat-shaming" could be the key to meeting weight-loss goals. Wait for it ― fat shaming. When I was in graduate school, I was putting on weight. I was chubby, by any standard and soon I found myself on the wrong side of some vicious bullies.

Kelly at that point got individual, telling the gathering of people, "Everybody in my family is or has been overweight stout" - that her sister was, at a certain point, 300 pounds previously having gastric sidestep surgery, that she once returned home crying after a neighbor call her mom fat and that she was harassed over her own weight amid her center school years. Please know I would never encourage that toward any person.

However, despite the uncomfortable laughter from the audience, Kang revealed that her husband will do the same thing to get her going, even hiding bags of chips if he finds her eating them. What I know without a doubt is that weight is an issue for many individuals, thin and overwhelming alike. Soon there were diet pills and obsessive exercise and I had reduced my calorie intake to 500 calories a day. "I've been thinking a lot about why I once encouraged it toward myself". And so unhappy. I was scared of gaining weight because of the insane standard this country holds its women to and because I was and remain afraid of dying in my 40s, which happened to my father.

She continued, "This rhetoric is risky and I want to tell all the girls here: I'm a conservative political analyst; I'm still a very a very political person no matter what (Kelly) has made a decision to do with her career. And neither deserves to be judged or shamed for how they choose to handle that struggle". The co-hosts weigh in.

Twitter users immediately called Kelly out for the cringe worthy statement and pointed out that she continues to put her foot in her mouth.

Leaving the clasp, she stated, "The strain to be thin is omnipresent in America and the individuals who are not can confront tragic mercilessness. Don't go there." Meghan McCain's response was probably the best one.

In a recent interview with Moneyish, Dean discussed how shock jock Don Imus used to fat-shame her on a daily basis when she worked with him.

"I was publicly (fat-shamed) early on in my career and it sent me to therapy", she tweeted. She added, "I think we need to be responsible in our rhetoric on television. I've never shed pounds for anything".
