I’m guessing that Kaufman County resident Jan Shedd wishes she had never posted about Demetria Obilor.
Shedd started a firestorm last week when she posted on her personal Facebook profile that Channel 8 traffic reporter Obilor was “a size 16/18 woman in a size 6 dress.”
Since she made the post public, we can only assume that Shedd was hoping her hot take would get some traction. Well, it did. The post went viral after it was shared on Twitter by a user named Mother of Draggings and then shared by Chance the Rapper. Shedd was accused of body shaming, a type of bullying aimed at certain body types.
The story then got picked up by news outlets across the country.
Today you can’t see the original post — or anything else — on Shedd’s Facebook profile, but it doesn’t matters since there are thousands of screenshots now available like this one.
As for the heart of the controversy, I think Ms. Obilor is very pretty and if the photo above is the worst thing she wears then I really don’t know what all the fuss is about.
