Bullied anchor speaks out on 'Ellen'

Posted: Updated:

Jenifer Livingston's response to a viewer went viral. She stepped up to the man who said she wasn't a role model to the community because of her weight.

Because of her response, Livingston gained a huge following and became a role model for taking criticism and standing up to bullies. Her character created a following and even Ellen Degeneres invited Livingston on her show Tuesday. With all the support Livingston received, her head is still held high. Here's what she had to say:

"It's not about him for me, it's about all of the people like that in this society that are using the Internet, that are using twitter, that are using facebook, that are trying to bring people down and make them feel bad about themselves. Clearly I am not the shining example of perfect health—I've never claimed to be. But that doesn't mean my worth should be this big."

Jennifer is a shining example of standing up for kindness. Ellen even rewarded her with a trip to the Caribbean on Tuesday's show.
