The Television weather reporter, Tracy Hinson, clapped back at a body shammer who messaged Hinson about hiding her stomach "Bulge." The newscaster fired back in a calm but direct manner.


Hinson is a meteorologist for KSDK News in St. Louis and is focused on reporting the latest in weather instead of dwelling on how she looks while doing it.

However, she found herself in the crosshairs of an internet troll who made comments about her stomach bulge. She shared the message with her followers, and it exploded beyond the market.



Hinson received a direct message from a female user who mentioned that she should hide her belly while on the air. The person suggested that Hinson use a girdle or top that covers the "bulge" while she's on the news and wrote:

"Do you ever watch yourself giving the weather report? Seems that you need a girdle for the stomach overhang which shortens the front of your dresses! Today was not the first time I have noticed this. Maybe you should wear a top that covers the bulge in your stomach."


The user goes by the name Mary, as Hinson wrote in her clap back tweet. Her point about hiding her belly because she didn't like the way it looked did not go well with the fans or Hinson.


Hinson took no time sharing the message on Twitter with her followers, along with a bold and straightforward message. She wrote how she did watch her reports later on, and absolutely will not cover up because of her. She dropped the last bomb by ending her message with a heart emoji and her name.

"Dear Mary, yes I do watch my air checks. NO I will not be strapping myself into a girdle because you don't like my belly. I like pasta, bread and cheese too much to obsess over my weight. I like my body and that's all that really matters."

The tweet has over twenty-two thousand likes and over a thousand re-tweets. Hinson's followers, along with people who didn't even know Hinson backed her up against the shammer.



Hinson's post became the first of a long thread of comments which supported her. One user wrote how he wished to visit Mary and cover her "magnificent perfection!"

Some fans took to provoking such shamers and advised Hinson to wear a fanny pack with the picture of a belly printed on it. Sadly, many comments are made on people's bodies and are criticized. Hinson is not the first person who has gone through the experience of body shaming, and nor will she be the last.





" published an article talking about the instances where celebrities fired back after body shammers targeted them. Celebrities like Whitney Way Thore from "My Big Fat Fabulous Life," and "White Chicks" star, Busy Phillips, fired with amazing responses to the insensitive shamers.

Thore took a swing at the shamer after they asked why she was working out in a sports bra instead of a tank top or t-shirt. The star replied with a list of reasons why.

"Fewer articles of clothing are more comfortable. 2) Please don't front like you'd have this complaint if I had a 6-pack. 3) I will take any and all opportunities to normalize fat bodies in motion. 4) it's my body, boo. You ain't gotta understand it."


Phillips, on the other hand, pointed out a grammatical error the shamer had made and called him an "[expletive] BODYSHAMMING LOSER." Read all about the thirty-one hilarious comebacks.
