More Body Shaming Bullies?

A pregnant news anchor recently shared with viewers letters she had received that could be classified as hate mail. Were people angry at the inaccurate weather forecasts, you ask? No, these letters had to do with how much people hated looking at Kristi Gordon's baby bump.  

Gordon recently announced on-air that she was expecting her second child, the stationreported.But she had an unusual request. She asked the viewers to please be nice about what she wore during her pregnancy, because she was criticized during her first pregnancy for her outfits."It was horrible last time," she said on the air.

Gordon said in an online segment last week that she has received even more hate mail since she asked viewers to be nice.

Gordon's predicament has inspired an outpouring of support from the online community. If you would like to show your solidarity and help fight body shaming bullies, please post your pic with #kushionsforkristi
