when to ignore

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I saw a story on the news about a news reporter who took on a blogger/emailer (can't remember which) who called her fat in a post or email. I can understand the reporter being hurt and angry, but instead of giving the insensitive jerk more attention, I would have deleted the email or ignored the post. But that's just me, I don't believe in giving more attention to people who don't deserve it in the first place.

    I read a story about this and actually she did ignore it at first. It was her husband that posted it on facebook and because they got so much positive support/feedback, they/he encouraged her to address it on tv as a way of also addressing bullying which seems to be rampant in schools these days.

    I agree - do not reward bad behavior!

    I also heard about this, and heard about the response that the reporter gave on television.

I actually thought her response to this was much better than simply ignoring it. If I was that bully, I dont think her commenting would have given me more thrills, in fact I think I would have been embarrassed of myself and shocked that my letter had received such a reaction.

I think that she was a great rold model and really stood up against her bullies. She admitted that she was overweight, but she also showed that people should not take peoples comments to heart, as long as she is aware of her problems, and is working on fixing them, then how is that anyone elses business.

I was inspired by what she did!
