Megyn Kelly says some women want to be fat shamed, sparking outrage

Did Megyn Kelly endorses fat-shaming 1312018

Kelly retraced her steps a day later, saying Friday she doesn't support shaming.

The TV host was in an interview with fitness personality and mother Maria Kang, talking about mothers getting back in shape and finding reasons to work out on Thursday when she made the comments. Please know I would never encourage that toward any person.

Kelly made the remark in a segment featuring controversial "fit mom" blogger Maria Kang, who Kelly even encouraged to "parlay the shaming thing into a professional business".

One of The View's co-host, Meghan McCain also took to Twitter to express her thoughts on Kelly's harsh comment. She added, "As a result, I have gotten healthier in my approach to eating, but I, like every woman I know, still wrestle with body image, and still cringe when I hear a person attacked for his or her weight".

The revelation triggered nervous laughter in the audience.

Kelly revealed that her her family has struggled with obesity and shared that has sister gained over 300 pounds, which led to her wanting to having gastric bypass surgery. "When I was in law school, I was gaining weight".

Vikings officially activate Sam Bradford for Sunday

"The problem is that she's not a comedian", Behar said.

Kelly added that she herself was "chubby" in middle school and faced bullying before later taking diet pills - once reducing her intake to 500 calories a day. "And so unhappy. I was scared of gaining weight because of the insane standard this country holds its women to and because I was and remain afraid of dying in my 40's, which happened to my father". "I think that she was trying to be amusing". "Weight is an issue for millions of people, thin and heavy alike", Kelly said. "I'm still a very political person, no matter what she chose to do with her career". "What's more, neither should be judged or disgraced for how they handle that battle".

"I was publicly fat shammed early on in my career and it sent me to therapy", McCAin said.

On The View today, the panel didn't really seem to buy Kelly's backtracking statement as guest host Wendy Williams snarked that the NBC star sounded "so authentic" after they played a clip of Kelly's monologue.

Leaving the clasp, she stated, "The strain to be thin is omnipresent in America and the individuals who are not can confront tragic mercilessness".

"I said something yesterday on the show that clearly struck a nerve, and I think it's a conversation we need to have openly", Kelly said. I have a hot spouse, I have a cool employment.
