Chicago Anchor Shuts Down Negative Viewer Comments

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

After a handful of viewers suggested a Chicago anchor should no longer wear a certain dress because she’s pregnant, FOX 32’s Kristen Nicole called them out.

“If you’re writing to tell me that you’re offended by the sight of my baby bump, don’t hold your breath waiting for a response. It’s not coming. I wear this dress probably once a month. No one has EVER had a problem with it,” Nicole said on her Facebook page.

The eight month pregnant anchor’s post sparked a flurry of responses of viewers who slammed viewers for body shaming the Good Day anchor.


“To Karen, Gene and Sabrina who wrote to me today, use your time better. Pay someone a compliment. Do a good deed. To everyone else who has sent messages of congratulations and well wishes, you are keeping me motivated through these last 6 weeks.”

The station did a story on the reaction to Nicole’s post on the show this morning. You can watch here.
