NBC's Megyn Kelly walks back from fat-shaming comments

Did Megyn Kelly endorses fat-shaming 1312018

Megyn Kelly was hit with backlash on Thursday after suggesting some people want to be shamed for being "fat".

"I said something yesterday on the demonstrate that unmistakably struck a nerve", she disclosed to her gathering of people, "and I believe it's a discussion we need. We were discussing body shaming others, something I absolutely do not support", she said. "Indeed, an incredible inverse".

Kelly surrendered that she had said that "Maria's message appeals to a few people". The internet was not happy, and neither was I when I had her on my old Fox News show where we had a rather contentious exchange. "And afterward I uncovered something I used to complete 25 years back".

"You should parlay the shaming thing into a professional business".

'Arrogant' UK Surgeon Burned Initials Onto Patients' Livers
I genuinely believe that the failure of the liver was due to the actions of Simon Bramhall burning his initials on to it. The surgeon pleaded not guilty to alternative charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm .

"I've never had to lose a pound, I got a hot husband, I got a cool job, I've never lost weight for anything", McCain said. When I was in law school, I was gaining weight, I said to my stepfather, "If you see me going into that kitchen one more time, you say, 'Where you going, fat ass?'" And it works! I do not endorse this reality, the truth is, I loathe it. "In all actuality I abhor it". "Trust me, there are real life ramifications for fat shaming of any kind, it is NEVER acceptable". I've been thinking a lot about why I once encouraged it toward myself. What I know without a doubt is that weight is an issue for many individuals, thin and overwhelming alike. "And neither deserves to be judged or shamed for how they choose to handle that struggle".

In any case, the ladies over on ABC's The View didn't rush to pardon, particularly Meghan McCain. In response to Kelly claiming today that it makes her "cringe" when she hears someone attacked for their weight, Whoopi Goldberg expressed confusion because Kelly was directly calling for fat-shaming just a day before. "I have been fat-disgraced freely and mortified my whole vocation".

"I was publicly fat shammed early on in my career and it sent me to therapy".

As for Kelly's anecdote about her dad shaming her into not eating, Elman finds it to be "particularly dangerous" and "verbally abusive" because he was treating eating as privilege when it's an "essential requirement for survival".
