News Anchor Gets Slammed Over Her 'Inappropriate' Look, Fires Back At 'Offended' Viewers

Josephine 12/08/2021

Award-winning news anchor Kristen Nicole was surprised when she received complaints from viewers about her "inappropriate dress." Take a look and see if you have a problem with what she was wearing.

Those who have a career which involves being on camera in any capacity quickly become accustomed to negative comments about their appearance, especially in an age where the internet has made anything and everything accessible to people from around the world, and social media has made it easier than ever to judge others from the anonymity of your own computer.

Kristen is the morning news anchor at "Good Day Chicago," a mother of one, and expecting her second baby. While she's been anchoring for years, this was the first time she'd received criticism about her appearance.

She shared photos from August 2016 to the present, in which she was wearing the same form-fitting blue dress.

Kristen is the morning news anchor at "Good Day Chicago," a mother of one, and expecting her second baby. While she's been anchoring for years, this was the first time she'd received criticism about her appearance.

But, she shut down the shade right away with a post, saying she wears the dress once per month and has no intention of stopping now just because of a few nay-sayers.

"LET ME SAVE YOU SOME TROUBLE," the news anchor wrote. "My email address is ***, but if you're writing to tell me that you're offended by the sight of my baby bump, don't hold your breath waiting for a response. It's not coming. I wear this dress probably once a month. No one has EVER had a problem with it. Wear it almost 8 months pregnant? (insert massive eye roll).”

Kristen revealed that she had received three separate emails, with one woman accusing her of using a fake baby bump to "boost ratings," another asking "when will you start wearing dresses fit for pregnancy,"and the last one telling her to "stop wearing tight dresses -- they don't do you any favors."

She confessed that she had felt self-conscious five months into her pregnancy, but her confidence was boosted when co-workers told her to embrace her changing body. She expressed that receiving the negative messages "was disheartening."

However, fans praised her for being incredibly honest.

One commented: "Can't believe anyone would take time out of their day to say things like that."

Another wrote, "You are beautiful. Ignore those who try to make someone feel bad, because they are so insecure."

It's hard to believe that many viewers in this day and age would actually take issue with a woman being pregnant without trying to hide their body under a tent. You're likely to see a much more revealing display by simply looking out your window as you drive down the street than what Kristen Nicole was showing in this blue dress.
