Kenneth Krause Turns Down Chance To Appear On-Air With Jennifer Livingston, TV Anchor He Called Fat

Kenneth Krause may have no problem making his feelings about TV anchor Jennifer Livingston known via email, but the personal injury lawyer has apparently drawn the line at an in-person meeting.

Krause made headlines when his email to Livingston criticizing her weight drew an on-air response from the anchor. He expressed concern that the La Crosse, Wisconsin anchor appeared not to have lost any weight since she was on the air and said that she is a bad role model for young girls.

Brian Simpson, a friend of Jennifer Livingston who works for The Morning Sickness radio show on 95.7 FM in La Crosse, offered Krause the chance to come on the show and “talk about his hatred for people who are a bit overweight,” 5 News KSFM reported.

Krause declined the opportunity, a Wisconsin blogger noted, but he hasn’t remained silent on the issue.

When discussing his email to Jennifer Livingston, Kenneth Krause said he would be willing to help her lose weight, Gawker reported.

Krause said:

“Given this country’s present epidemic of obesity and the many truly horrible diseases related thereto, and considering Jennifer Livingston’s fortuitous position in the community, I hope she will finally take advantage of a rare and golden opportunity to influence the health and psychological well-being of Coulee Region children by transforming herself for all of her viewers to see over the next year, and, to that end, I would be absolutely pleased to offer Jennifer any advice or support she would be willing to accept.”

Since her more than four-minute response to the Kenneth Krause email, Jennifer Livingston has found herself making national headlines. She has earned the backing of many people including Ellen DeGeneres, who tweeted her support for Krause.
