It seems bullies are hiding around every corner lately, just waiting for an opportunity to sneak out and attack their victims. Sadly, bullying isn’t a tactic reserved for ill-mannered children either. In fact, some adults seemingly love to partake in the disgusting practice as one Fox News host found out after she posted a picture on social media, and it didn’t take long for one woman to comment about her “huge legs.” However, the fed-up host didn’t hesitate to fight back, and now, the bully isn’t laughing after she heard what the host had to say.
Janice Dean is a playful Meteorologist who greets Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends viewers enthusiastically every day. She often engages people on the street, naturally coming off as a fun and down-to-earth host, which is a refreshing trait to have in today’s society. Unfortunately, she learned the hard way that not everyone enjoys her segment, but she wasn’t afraid to put her bully in her place.
While addressing the needless attacks she has received about her appearance, she recently shared one particular instance where a bully-of-a-woman decided to shame her “huge legs” in a message. She shared the original message she received that hurt her feelings, reports BizPac Review. “Dear Janice please stop allowing Fox to dress you in those short skirts. They are not flattering on you. Your an attractive lady, love the 80’s hair, but your legs are distracting every time you walk on screen,” it read.
Some people can be utterly cruel. It’s easy to be a bully when you don’t have to show your face to the person you’re criticizing. Nonetheless, Janice Dean wasn’t about to let this woman belittle her, so she decided to fight back and has left viewers jaw-dropped with her epic response.
“Hi JoAnn,” she began, addressing the woman who sent the unnecessary and cruel message. “Fox doesn’t dress me. I dress myself,” she boldly declared.
“I’m sorry if you don’t like my legs. I’m grateful I have them to walk with. You’re right. I don’t look like the typical person on TV, and I’m proud to be a size 10. Imagine that!” Janice continued. “You can always turn the channel if you’re offended by my huge legs. Hope you don’t mind. I may share your post with everyone on my FB page. All the best, Janice,” she concluded.
The badass, yet classy response has since gone viral. In fact, as a result of the overwhelmingly positive feedback, Janice decided to share additional, personal information to explain her situation, and once she did, her bully was undoubtedly even further humiliated over what she stirred up with her cruel message.
Come to find out, Janice Dean was sadly diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a disease that results in severe nerve damage, more than 10 years ago, and the appearance of her legs means nothing compared to the gratefulness she has that they still work. She made it clear that she has now received plenty of support from fans since she bravely shared the cruel post and her private health struggle.
“I was bawling my eyes out Monday night,” Janice Dean wrote, recalling the rude message then the overwhelming support. “I could lose my ability to walk literally any day. So, I’ve learned to be proud of my legs, and am grateful for them every day of my life.”
Janice’s first MS nurse, Jen, who has since become a good friend, decided to give Janice some encouragement and praise. “Dear Janice, I LOVE those strong legs,” nurse Jen wrote. “I LOVE that you stand tall, walk, run, squat, lunge, skip, jump and hop on those legs. You are blessed and a blessing to have STRONG legs!!! Wear skirts proudly and show your STRONG legs!!! Love you my angel”
Janice has been nothing but being positive about her current situation, but sadly, some stranger, who didn’t know her struggles, had to jump in to criticize a physical trait that brings Janice a lot of uncertainty because of her diagnosis.
Unfortunately, people today can be horrible to one another. They seemingly forget that we never know what another person is going through. Although, that’s only one reason why you should never insult someone for something they can’t change and something that’s very insignificant in the grand scheme of things. I mean, who cares how someone’s legs look as long as they are doing their job and doing it well?
