Megyn Kelly: Some Women Want to Be Fat-Shamed

"Close to forty percent of Americans are obese". "We were discussing body shaming others, something I absolutely do not support, in fact quite the opposite ... Because some of us want to be shamed", Kelly said.

"If you don't mind know, I could never support that toward any individual", she finished up. We had on a woman named Maria Kang.

Kang was criticized in 2013 for posting a photo on Facebook that showed her with toned abs next to her three toddlers under the phrase, "What's your excuse?"

Turning to yesterday's controversial remarks, she addressed them head on, saying, "I said something on this show yesterday that clearly struck a nerve, and I think it's a conversation that we need to have, openly".

King told Kelly she has since softened her message to fellow moms. She has thousands of followers who created their own "no excuses" clubs throughout the country.

Many women have told me that they've done similar things to control their propensity to overeat.

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 do not endorse this reality. My Nana, my mom, my sister, and my brother. Kelly recalled a time when she was six years old when she heard a neighbor call her mother "fat". I was angry. And upset. "I said to my stepfather, "If you see me go into that kitchen one more time, you say 'Where you goin", fat (expletive)?' And it worked!" A brutal and unforgiving one. When I was in graduate school, I was putting on weight.

Immediately, Twitter was ablaze with backlash, with many taking the talking head to task for what they felt was encouragement of risky fat-shaming behavior, including one Meghan McCain, who posted her own tweet on the subject. "Those comments can cut deep, trust me, I know". Soon there were diet pills and obsessive exercise and I had reduced my calorie intake to 500 calories a day. "My heart was racing all day, my hair and my skin were dry, but I was thin!" "And because I was and remain afraid of dying in my 40s, which happened to my father".

"Please know, I would never encourage that toward any person", she concluded. "I've been pondering why I once empowered it toward myself". And neither deserves to be judged or shamed for how they choose to handle that struggle.
