Personal injury lawyers are not very well liked in general, but Kenneth Krause managed to make himself the most hated man in America after he wrote a Wisconsin news anchor to complain that she's far too overweight to set a good example for young viewers, "girls in particular."
Despite the backlash against his letter brought on by Jennifer Livingston's four-minute on-air response, Krause, who is clearly into his looks (see photo above), has released a statement doubling down on his comments:
Given this country's present epidemic of obesity and the many truly horrible diseases related thereto, and considering Jennifer Livingston's fortuitous position in the community, I hope she will finally take advantage of a rare and golden opportunity to influence the health and psychological well-being of Coulee Region children by transforming herself for all of her viewers to see over the next year, and, to that end, I would be absolutely pleased to offer Jennifer any advice or support she would be willing to accept.
On CBS This Morning, Livingston, who just so happens to be the sister of Office Space actor Ron Livingston, said weight has been a constant struggle since giving birth to her first child a decade ago.
"If I could snap my fingers to be a size that I don't have to shop on the plus size rack that would be great, but I'm not ashamed of myself," she said. "Talk to me about the stories I cover, not the way I look."
Livingston invited Krause to appear on her show, but Krause declined.
