Tracy Hinson Body-Shamer
on October 17, 2019, KSDK-TV decided to address the body-shaming in a follow-up story.
Anchor Kay Quinn explained that they wanted to address the point that body-shaming is never acceptable.
In the on-air segment, Hinson described feeling “touched” by the kind responses she received after publicly responding to the body-shamer.
It’s such an important message, No matter what you look like, what you like to eat, you know, that’s part of living. We need to be kind to one another.
Hinson added with a laugh; I will always treasure my carb baby,” as she touched her stomach as if she was pregnant.
Quinn added It’s easy to sit at home and make these comments and share your opinions, but I think we also have to think about the effect our words have on other people, even if we never see them in person.
