Why is This 6 Months Pregnant Canadian TV Presenter Receiving Hate Mail?

Why is this 6 months pregnant Canadian TV presenter receiving hate mail?

TV presenters are no doubt in the spotlight every day. They are with us at dinner time. They tell us the news, good sometimes, though mostly bad. So, it is not unbelievable that from time to time they might even offend us. But, the reason why this 6 months pregnant Canadian TV presenter is receiving hate mail should shock you.

No, she hasn’t just given away the plot to Episode 1 of Game Of Thrones. She hasn’t told you the score of the Swans game before you had a chance to watch the replay. She hasn’t even told you who is next to leave Home and Away… No. Apparently her burgeoning size – BECAUSE OF A BABY – is seriously grating on people’s eyeballs and means she deserves hate mail.

One audience member wrote: “Nowhere on North American TV have we seen a weather reader as gross as you. Your front end looks like the Hindenburg and your rear end looks like a brick s***house. We now turn off Global.”

Wow, body-shaming a pregnant lady for having a big belly. Shaming people for body size is never cool and picking on a pregnant woman is really a new low.

 

 

Kristi says, “I feel like I’m a pretty confident person, I wouldn’t be in this industry if I wasn’t. I don’t feel like this is affecting me, or has affected me.

“But I thought about some of the things I did last night; I checked the mirror to see how big I’m getting. I asked my husband, ‘Am I not seeing it? Am I getting really big?'”

“It wasn’t until I went to bed that I realised that – despite us saying that these guys are crazy – it’s amazing that when you say something mean about someone it still affects them.”

At Global BC, Canada where she works, they released a statement supporting Kristi – “To all viewers, thanks for all your feedback. We’ve read them all. We support Kristi, her wardrobe choices and all women who work while pregnant.”

We at Mum’s Lounge also support Kristi, her beautiful pregnant body and wish her the best for the safe and joyous arrival of baby #2!

Did anyone try to put you down when you were pregnant?
