Have you seen this video? It’s been making the rounds on Facebook and via e-mail in the past couple of days. In it Jennifer Livingston, an anchor and reporter for WKBT-TV in La Crosse, Wisconsin responded on-air to an extremely critical e-mail regarding her weight. It has sparked a lot of discussion.
You might remember that back in January, we hosted Be Nice on the Internet Week, a concerted attempt to bring back online civility. And given that October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and with this video in the news we thought it would be a good time to revisit some social media etiquette.
Tell us what you think of this news anchor’s response in the comments, and whether you applaud her for standing up or think she’s overreacting.
