A viewer attacked Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean for showing off her legs on television. Dean has multiple sclerosis. The viewer told her that her legs are unattractive and she should keep them covered. Dean responded to the comment in a brilliant way.
“Dear Janice, please stop allowing fox to dress you in those short skirts. They are not flattering on you. Your an attractive lady, love the 80’s hair, but your legs are distracting every time you walk on screen,” wrote the user on facebook.
“Fox doesn’t dress me. I dress myself. I’m sorry if you don’t like my legs. I’m grateful I have them to walk with. You’re right. I don’t look like the typical person on TV, and I’m proud to be a size 10. Imagine that! You can always turn the channel if you’re offended by my huge legs. Hope you don’t mind. I may share your post with everyone on my FB page. All the best, Janice,” she responded.
Many other commenters came to Dean’s defense, this prompted Dean to respond again.
“Well, now I’m in tears. Who knew a post sharing something disparaging about my legs would make me feel so good. Thank you all for being so kind. I truly am proud of my big strong legs. One day they may give out on me, but for now they help me walk, stand, jump, kick with the Rockettes and make snow angels. I am blessed. Thank you all for reminding me of that. xo” she wrote.
