Her response is awesome!
Bully Calls News Anchor Fat, News Anchor Destroys Him On Live TV
I saw this and someone said to me, "Oh, so now just calling someone fat is a bully?" And my answer was (and this is a discussion we've actually had on this forum): Yes, it's bullying behavior because (1) she knows she fat and therefore he's not telling her anything she doesn't know. (2) The only reason that someone so wholly unconnected to her would tell her she's fat is to be a bully.

But I def agree that the person who wrote the letter intended to bully her.

And good for her that she was mentally strong enough to post the letter and call this person out on his/her BS.

Some definitions say bullying is repeated action, and committed by someone who has or tries to exert power over another or intimidate them. Thats the definition Im most familiar with. Every act of rudeness isnt bullying or bigotry.

I also disagree with the definition of bullying springcurl suggested. I see bullying as the intentional infliction of mental and/or physical distress through harassment, physical violence, mocking, gossip, social exclusion etc. by a person who is in a position of relative power over the victim and who abuses that power.

Calling someone fat may or may not fit that definition. It depends on who says it to who and why and in what context, etc.

The comments made putting someone down automatically puts them in a position of power.

Intentional infliction of mental or physical distress through harassment...etc, etc.... sounds like a very 'dictionary' definition. Whatever. How is calling someone fat at least not an attempt at bullying. Even if the person was self confident and not afflicted by her size, the attempt was still there.

If some homeless, drunk person on the street calls me fat, that does not give them power over me.

If a little child calls me fat, that does not give them power over me.

If my boss calls me fat, he has power over me already and calling me fat is an abuse of such power.

The guy's name is out there. I was just getting my nails done and some show with Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda (can't remember her last name) was on tv. They showed the text and the guy's name was right at the top. I think he might have posted a response to her.
