Actor Ron Livingston of Sex and the City and Office Space fame spoke out Wednesday for his sister–the ‘fat’ TV anchor from Wisconsin who was bullied for her weight. Jennifer Livingston is an amazing woman for her response to that rude and hurtful bullying, and her brother is a great guy for giving her his public support.
According to a report from People.com, not many people realized that Jennifer Livingston had a famous brother. His public defense of his sister on Wednesday came as a surprise to many.
“My sister Jennifer … brings an exceptional dedication to her job, her family, and her community, and has been a role model of mine for many, many years,” Ron said in a statement to the media.
He also expressed his pride in Jennifer–an Emmy-winning journalist and hard-working mom of three girls.
Jennifer Livingston appeared on air at WKBT–a CBS affiliate in La Crosse, Wisconsin, on Tuesday, responding to the cruel email she received from a viewer.
“I was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition hasn’t improved for many years,” the viewer wrote. “Surely you don’t consider yourself a suitable example for this community’s young people, girls in particular.”
“You know nothing about me but what you see on the outside,” Jennifer Livingston replied on-air. “And I am much more than a number on the scale.”
It’s abundantly clear that this viewer knew nothing about the dynamic woman with the famous brother. And it’s great that Ron Livingston waited a couple of days before speaking out in his sister’s defense. She did a perfectly fine job of defending herself in an eloquent and intelligent manner.
It never hurts, however, to get that wonderful ego boost from one’s big brother–and Jennifer no doubt felt like she received a big, warm hug when learning of Ron’s statement.
