WATCH ABOVE: Kristi Gordon’s hate mail video goes viral.
VANCOUVER – Meteorologist Kristi Gordon has received hundreds of emails and thousands of messages on Facebook and Twitter since she went public with some hate mail she’s received about what she wears on-air during her pregnancy.
Gordon says she is so thankful to everyone who has sent her and Global BC positive messages.
But she says she did not go public with the letters to get compliments. “More so it was about bringing up this idea that a) people on-air seem to be fair game to people and especially anonymous people. They send off these letters without their name attached. It’s just downright mean.”
Krop says male anchors can age, get overweight or lose their hair, but women cannot do the same.
Gordon says she knows her body is changing but she still wants to look good.
“It’s when it’s cupped under the belly that people, I get more emails then,” says Gordon. “I have a problem when it starts getting mean.”
Krop says women are subject to so much more scrutiny than men about their bodies and what their bodies are doing. “The most amazing thing is that you’re growing a person inside your body right now,” says Krop.
These are the types of tops Kristi is criticized for the most:
