MSNBC’s Megyn Kelly got in trouble with her network when she told a guest that she liked being ‘fat-shamed’ because it helped motivate her to lose weight.
“Some of us want to be shamed! When I was in law school, I was gaining weight, I said to my stepfather, ‘If you see me going into that kitchen one more time, you say, ‘Where you going, fat a**?’ It works!” laughed Megyn Kelly. Now, after possibly being yelled at by the producers, she came back and made the exact opposite statement.
According to Kelly, there is only one solution to obesity. Kindness. Tell obese people they are fine just the way they are and let them die from it so you don’t hurt their feelings. Close to 40 percent of Americans are obese. They need support, they need kindness, and one thing they definitely do not need is to be body-shamed,” said Kelly.
“I said something yesterday on the show that clearly struck a nerve, and I think it’s a conversation we need to have openly. We were discussing body-shaming others, something I absolutely do not support. In fact, quite the opposite,” said Kelly.
“My entire family is or has been overweight, or obese. My Nana, my mom, my sister, and my brother. 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,” said Kelly. “Those comments can cut deep, trust me, I know.” Is she totally fake?
