Megyn Kelly recently had "FitMom" Maria Kang as a guest and discussed how "fat shaming" has actually helped her stay fit. “Some of us want to be shamed,” she said
Kelly goes on to tell the story “When I was in law school, I was gaining weight, I said to my stepfather, ‘If you see me going into that kitchen one more time, you say, ‘Where you going, fat ass?’ And it works!”
The Today host seems to endorse Kang's (in)famous Facebook posts that show off her fit body with the tagline, "What's Your Excuse?" Kelly tells her, "You should parlay the shaming thing into a professional business."
While this approach may work for some - like Kelly and Kang - it may not work for everyone.
