Jennifer Livingston is a local news anchor in La Cross, Wisconsin. She's overweight. Recently, she received an email from a viewer who chastised Jennifer for being overweight and for being an unsuitable role model, asking her to consider her "responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle."

Jennifer responded to the asshole with a lot more restraint than I imagine most people could muster, rightfully suggesting that it's the emailer who is the poor role model and not the "fat news lady."

"We are better than the bullies who try to take us down ... do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies."

Jennifer Livingston rocks.
