A local weather reporter had the perfect reply after she was body-shamed by an unidentified viewer.
Tracy Hinson was approached by a bitter viewer on Twitter and was told that she should “wear a top that covers the bulge in your stomach”. she was also “advised” by the viewer to wear a “girdle for the stomach overhang”.
Hinson, who works for KSDK in St Louis, Missouri, posted a body-positive message in response to the body-shaming which read, “Dear Mary, yes I do watch my airchecks. NO, I will not be strapping myself into a girdle because you don’t like my belly”. In her post, she also wrote that she loves her body just the way it is. Her post ended with #nomorefatshaming.
Many took to Twitter to laud Hinson for her riposte. Her response, which was also posted on Facebook and Instagram, was met with a lot of body-positive messages from various people. Take a look at some of the heartwarming comments:
Sorry you have to deal with such mean comments. Love your positivity! Love your body and that’s what matters – great message!

What the deuce Tracy. You look great. Some folks can be so darn rude and catty.
This Mary character needs lessons in class.

Dear Tracy, I don’t know you, nor have I ever seen you on TV. But this tweet has spread beyond your market and I just want you to know that I hope you meant this deep inside and you change nothing. Thank you for this and props to you. I think you are beautiful. Be you.
