Megyn Kelly: Some women want to be fat-shamed, it works!

Megyn Kelly has upset hundreds on social media after stating on her television program"Today, that some women want to be fat-shamed

"When I was in law school, I was gaining weight, I said to my stepfather, 'If you see me going into that kitchen one more time, you say, 'Where you going, fat ass?' And it works!"

Speaking to Maria Kang, the "Fit Mom" blogger who herself was accused of fat-shaming in a post she penned in 2013, Kelly fondly remembered a time in the 1990s when her stepfather was tasked with criticizing her appearance in order to curb her eating.

"Some of us want to be shamed!"

Kang, who was on the show to reveal her new laid-back approach to fitness and her dedication to inspiring other mums to work out, rather than fat-shaming them, seemed taken aback by the host's comments.

This is not the first time Kelly has made uncomfortable on-air comments. She went on to say that she gained weight while she was in law school, and asked her stepfather to "shame" her in order to help her lose weight.

Kelly was swiftly condemned for her comments online, even inciting a tweet from fellow media personality Meghan McCain.

"I was publicly fat shammed early on in my career and it sent me to therapy".

"I was severely fat shamed (bullied-yes it's bullying Megan (sic)!) through high school". She has managed to stay slim after having three kids.

The always svelte Kelly has admitted in that she is a fan of The F-Factor Diet.

While Megyn said she's body-shamed herself in the past to gain control over her weight (and knows many other women who do the same), she doesn't condone that unhealthy thinking.

Not everyone was impressed with Kelly's weight loss hack.

Kelly also opened up about her eating habits back in 2009 when she participate in the New York Diet for Grub Street.

That piece also revealed that Kelly takes her coffee with "cream and half a Splenda" and her thoughts on bread and cake products.

Though Kang has since changed her motto to "What's your reason?", Kelly, 47, had some ideas up her sleeve.
