Megyn Kelly Says Women Like Fat Shaming, Twitter Screams

Twitter users immediately called Kelly out for the cringe worthy statement and pointed out that she continues to put her foot in her mouth. Television personality Megyn Kelly just proved that on her show Thursday morning, when she sat down with the controversial "Fit Mom" Maria Kang to discuss weight loss motivation. They need support, they need kindness and one thing they definitely do not need is to be body-shamed. "For so long in society, we've thought that shame can be a great motivator, and whilst it is proven that it can have results in the short-term, it doesn't in the long-term, and even worse than that, it doesn't account for the impact on one's mental health", Michelle Elman, a body-positive activist, tells CafeMom.

"I said something yesterday on this show that clearly struck a nerve", Kelly said in her apology on NBC on Friday.

"This hit me by and by", she stated, reviewing that her first visitor appearance on The View was to react to being fat-disgraced by Laura Ingram.

She proceeded with, "This talk is hazardous and I need to tell every one of the young ladies here: I'm a traditionalist political investigator; I'm as yet an extremely an exceptionally political individual regardless (Kelly) has chosen to do with her vocation. In fact, quite the opposite".


"My entire family is or has been overweight, or obese".

Former Fox News host Meghan McCain weighed in and immediately pointed out that she was fat-shamed years ago by current Fox News host Laura Ingraham. By the time I got to middle school, the hormones and the weight kicked in. "Those comments can cut deep, trust me, I know".

"Soon there were diet pills and obsessive exercise and I had reduced my calorie intake to 500 calories a day", Kelly said. "And so unhappy. I was scared of gaining weight because of the insane standard this country holds its women to and because I was and remain afraid of dying in my 40's, which happened to my father". What I know without a doubt is that weight is an issue for many individuals, thin and overwhelming alike. She explained that one time, Imus brought a personal trainer with him on air to say that Dean needed to work on "her hips and her butt". "And neither deserves to be judged or shamed for how they choose to handle that struggle".
