Jennifer Livingston of WKBT-TV read a letter from a viewer who took issue with the fact that she is overweight. “Obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain,” the viewer wrote. “I leave you this note hoping that you’ll reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle.”
