Bullied TV Anchor Has Famous Brother
In a span of a few days, Jennifer Livingston became national news for her brave stand by fighting back against a personal attack about her weight. Many people are proud of what she has done, and near the top of the list is her famous brother.
The story out of Wisconsin saw Livingston, a TV news anchor for WKBT out of LaCrosse, respond on-air to an attack by someone who admitted he did not watch her that ofter but felt compelled to call her out on her wait. The video of her stance has been viewed nearly 6 Million times on YouTube in less than 48 hours, and it has made Jennifer highly sought after to appear on talk shows to share her stance.
This kind of fame is not what Livingston was expecting, but her family understands being famous through her brother – actor Ron Livingston.
Ron has been a fixture in Hollywood for over 15 years having getting attention in Swingers, then starring in the “Cult Classic” film Office Space, followed by the acclaimed mini-series Band of Brothers, then came roles in Oscar nominated films The Cooler and Adaptation, and recently in The Odd Life of Timothy Green. He was quoted as saying today “my sister brings an exceptional dedication to her job, her family, and her community, and has been a role model for many many years”, and is extremely proud of her sister.
Jennifer Livingston has received support by tens of thousands across the country, and is now a face for National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. Look for Livingston to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres Show next week.
