Fat Shaming Occurs Live on Air at KTLA
Sometimes joking can be appropriate at the right moment when it comes to news anchors. These jokes are usually light-hearted jokes that are not aimed at things such as body issues.
On a certain broadcast at KTLA, a little body shaming went a little too far. Sam Rubin was doing a report on air. As he was conducting his story, a certain traffic anchor was sitting in the traffic center. This anchor was minding her own business at first, talking about how Sam’s wife believes that he is fat. The anchor “he’s always been” the fat guy on air while he was doing his story. She did not realize her mic was on and the camera caught it all.
