TV Reporter Shuts Down Troll Who Told Her To Wear A Top That Covers Her ‘Stomach Bulge’

We are in 2019, yet body-shaming is a reality we still fight. Haters and trollers find it easy to comment on someone’s appearance and probably feel liberated and happy with their act. But it might leave someone heartbroken and have a huge impact on their mental health. It might seem that the society has moved past fat-shaming with #selflove taking over everyone’s Instagram accounts, but the reality isn’t as pleasing.

In a shocking incident, a news presenter was body-shamed by a viewer for her visible ‘stomach bulge’. According to News18, the reporter is Tracy Hinson, a local weather reporter at KSDK in St Louis, Missouri. A viewer identified as Mary told Tracy that she should “wear a top that covers the bulge” in her stomach. “Do you ever watch yourself giving the weather report? Seems that you need a girdle for the stomach overhang which shortens the front of your dresses,” Mary allegedly wrote to Tracy.

But Tracy proved that although body-shaming isn’t cool, one shouldn’t let trolls rain on their parade. Tracy took to social media and took Mary down in a very dignified manner and wrote on her tweet, “I like pasta, bread and cheese too much to obsess over my weight. I like my body and that’s all that really matters.”

The internet applauded Tracy for giving a befitting reply to Mary.

Body shaming is not cool and neither are the people who think it is okay to comment on someone’s appearance anonymously using finsta.

More power to you, Tracy.
