A Canadian television anchor hit back at a
viewer who sent an email criticizing her cleavage
during an appearance she had made.
On Sept. 7, Kori Sidaway, an anchor at
CHEK News in Victoria, British Columbia,
took to Twitter to share the email.
The sender, who claimed to be the “Vancouver
Island Cleavage Patrol,” advised her that “too much
cleavage” could “break” her news story.
They also attached two photos: one of
Sidaway as she appeared on air the day
before and one of a woman wearing a
dress with a much deeper V-neck cut.
“What you think we see and what we actually see …
Dress appropriately, it was hard work to get there”.
In response, Sidaway chastised the viewer for
body-shaming her in a strongly worded tweet.
“To the nameless computer warrior(s) who
try to reduce women into an outfit or a
body part — this generation of women,
doesn’t stand for harassment”.
Sidaway’s tweet has since received over
7,000 likes and more than 1,000 responses
