Megyn Kelly Jokes About Fat Shaming

On NBC’s show “Today”, Megyn Kelly had the well-known “Fit Mom” blogger Maria Kang on her show for an interview and proceeded to insensitively and distastefully joke about being ‘fat-shamed.’

Kelly rudely said, “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 ass?’ And it works!”

Tactless, maybe?

    Megyn has not told us if they groped her at FoxNews. Why did she leave FoxNews when she was doing a great job there. There is something she is hiding from us. Now she looks old and wrinkled. Is it because she lost her job again?

    Not everyone is the same.
    I would not respond in a positive manner to being fat-shamed.
    There are too many mean and hateful people in this world.

      In the case that Megan uses, she *asked* to be fat-shamed! It was a matter of mutual consent & agreement that her father did so. So, how about any other heavy person that Megan denigrates? Do they directly *ask* for it before she does so?

      She using an apple to describe an orange there…

      • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

        No, I would never ask to be shamed about anything.
        If it worked for HER, then great. She has the ego to handle it.
        I’m just saying it would NEVER work for me.
        Feeling shame to the delight of another contributed to my overeating
        in the first place

    As long as the discussion is about Megyn…is it still Kelly? Someone help me with my question. She participated in the pre-planned “Me Too” Autumn Offensive. So the implication is that she gained her ascension to the highest levels of television journalism visibility at Fox News Channel AFTER having been propositioned by Roger Ailes. I seem to remember that her story is that she slapped him or reacted in some morally outraged indignant way. Yet, she ascended. Does that seem somewhat unlikely to you?

    Nearly all of the now-ascended, celebrity, Hollywood goddesses who claim that they were presented with the choice of either consenting to being soiled in return for ascendancy–or rejecting the interlude…in return for denial any further advancement to movie stardom. They all chose prostitution: “Have at me, but I expect to be paid…with the role I’m after in that there movie.” Were they “giving it up” for God and Country? For “the children?” Or was it for a reward?

    I guess my question is two-fold. Why are these females not being characterized as women with a low price? Sure, the “Johns” were abusing their powerful positions, and deserving of all the punishment they are receiving. It’s too bad that they can’t be neutered. But the “victims,” had a choice, which they made. And that choice was to sell themselves. There is a name for that act. Is there not?

    And, doesn’t Megyn Kelly qualify? I mean, hasn’t she earned the name?
    Just asking’.

    The only time I think about fat-shaming is when someone who is obviously obese tries to pretend she (he) is normal, and the rest of us should look to that person as a role model. I don’t look like Joe six-pack, and I don’t go around showing my slightly overweight body as if I were proud of it. So my take is, if you look like grated cheese under the skin, keep it covered. - 2015 | Privacy Policy
