WRWD (Augusta) Anchor Laura Warren got a voicemail from a viewer telling her that she needs to buy some new clothes to help cover up her pregnant body.
Here is the voicemail that she was left:
Warren posted to her blog, "So, the thick skinned journalist in me who knows better than to give comments like this a second thought says, delete the voicemail and move on. Unfortunately, I'm pregnant, hormonal, currently not allowed to drink wine, and feeling extra in touch with my feminist side."
She then wrote:
Here's the stream of consciousness I went through:
Did she just call a pregnant person disgusting? What kind of...
I am only at week 20 of this? Am I going to have to deal with this crap another 20 weeks? Should I have my consultant or my boss call her and tell her tailored, form fitting clothes look way better on air then baggy ones, especially when pregnant? Is that a WOMAN who called me?!? Is she a MOTHER?!?!? The freaking nerve...
Do I really look disgusting? What outfit is she talking about? Why did she call on Friday, I wasn't even working Friday....did she boil over this all week and wait until I was off to leave me a voicemail? Oh crap, am I tearing up at my desk? NOT here. And, NOT over this. This lady doesn't deserve to get a rise out of me. Does she know that I'm wearing maternity clothes? What does she want me to wear, a moo moo from the 50's? Does she know this is 2017? WHY DID SHE CALL ME?! And, why can I not stop thinking about this?!
FTVLive finds it amazing at what people will say to people they don't know and have never met. Also, poor Laura is an Anchor in Augusta, GA, dose anyone think she can afford and entire new wardrobe on that salary.
I have said in the past and I will say it again....women in this business have it so much worse then men when it comes to getting criticized.
As for Laura Warren? Screw this lady and know that you look fine just the way you are.
