Pregnant Meteorologist Shares Cruel Letters About Her Appearance (VIDEO)

Anyone who has flipped past Fox News knows we don't let any woman on TV—even a news anchor—off the hook when it comes to her hotness. For those who assume pregnancy is the one time when women are given a pass, a Canadian meteorologist confirmed our worst fears about society when she read some of the horrific letters she has received from viewers about her body while she is pregnant with her second child.

Global B.C. meteorologist Kristi Gordon is savvy enough to know folks are going to hide behind their anonymity and spew hate over the Internet over her appearance no matter what. That's why she actually asked people to be nice to her when she first revealed her second pregnancy on a segment of the show. The fact that she even feels like she has to do that is appalling.

But the realization that she was totally right—some people really are that mean and unhappy with their own lives—makes matters 100 times worse. It seems Gordon has been receiving hate mail and none of it addresses the way she discusses cold fronts. Nope, people just really don't like seeing her pregnant body on their TV screens and, I guess, want her to stop being pregnant. Or at least have the decency to hide herself away while pregnant.

To the news program's credit, they actually took time out in the show to let Gordon share portions of some of the letters she has received. And they are eye-opening, to say the least:

"Nowhere on North America TV have we seen a weather reader so gross as you,” read one letter.

Another: “Your front end looks like the Hindenburg and your rear-end looks like a brick sh—house. We now turn off Global."

They turn off the news because they can't stand seeing a woman creating life?! Sound like charming folks.

Third letter: “Buy some decent clothes and have more respect for your unborn child."

Another fashionista had this to say: “Looser tops would look much more professional.”

Let's be real: Gordon's attire has nothing to do with this. Some cowardly people still feel they should use the little power they have while hiding in their homes and typing away on a keyboard to attempt to bring down a woman who is trying her best to have kids and a career (heaven forbid).

More power to Gordon for confronting her bullies by addressing this issue instead of letting it take over her psyche. I sincerely hope she turns up to work while 9 months pregnant wearing the tightest dress she can find. If she could flip the bird while delivering the weather without losing her job, I totally support that as well.
