A recent news report about Hurricane Irma in the United States has sparked a body-positive exchange that is captivating the internet, according to MSN.
Early on Monday morning, CNN news reporter Sara Sidner braved the hurricane’s brutal rainfall in Daytona Beach, Florida.
To illustrate the storm’s intensity, Sidner pointed out how she was being blown away by Irma’s strong winds, despite the size of her body.
The reporter said to CNN anchor: “The tops of trash cans [are] flying around. And this wind — I am not a small woman, as you know, Don. I am a chunky girl, and it is blowing me around when the gusts come really, really hard.”
When the camera cut out to the anchor, he told Sidner: “You’re a beautiful woman no matter what size you are. There’s nothing wrong with having a little curve.”
People immediately took to social media to laud the anchor’s response.
