Megyn Kelly Faces Backlash Over Pro-Fat-Shaming Remarks

Megyn Kelly Faces Backlash Over Pro-Fat-Shaming Remarks

If anyone ever wanted to know Megyn Kelly's secret to staying in shape while in law school, it was being fat-shammed.

Kelly surrendered that she had said that "Maria's message appeals to a few people. Those comments can cut deep, trust me, I know". She then moved on to Kelly's comments - something she had also addressed on Twitter yesterday - noting that besides saying yesterday that fat-shaming can be good, Kelly also included diet tips in her book and that it came across that a woman needed to be thin to get ahead.

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". When I was in graduate school, I was putting on weight.

However, despite the uncomfortable laughter from the audience, Kang revealed that her husband will do the same thing to get her going, even hiding bags of chips if he finds her eating them. I spoke to my sister yesterday and she gave me permission to share that she was, at one point, over 300 pounds and ultimately chose to have gastric bypass surgery... 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. "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". Please know, I would never encourage that toward any person. "I've been pondering why I once empowered it toward myself". "Weight is an issue for millions of people, thin and heavy alike", Kelly said. "And neither deserves to be judged or shamed for how they choose to handle that struggle", she said. However, the co-hosts of "The View" seemingly were unimpressed with Kelly's lengthy explanation.

On Friday, Kelly clarified her statements on her show.

"People who are not comics should not do it", she added. "I said to my stepfather, 'If you see me go into that kitchen one more time, you say 'Where you going, fat ass?' And it worked!"

"I said something yesterday on the show that clearly struck a nerve, and I think it's a conversation we need to have openly. I've never shed pounds for anything". I have a hot spouse, I have a cool employment.
