VIRAL VIDEO: News anchor fights back

A Wisconsin TV anchor took to the air to defend herself after a viewer attacked her for being overweight.

Jennifer Livingston of WKBT received an email from a viewer who complained her size wasn't a "suitable example" for the community's young people.

The letter went viral after her husband, a fellow anchor, posted it online.

Livingston addressed the rude viewer on-air Tuesday and others who may be the victim of bullying.
