With just over two weeks until her third baby was due, Weekend The Today Show co-host Deborah Knight received an email from a viewer calling her body ‘repulsive’.
The co-host took to share a part of the email which helpfully suggested she sit down if she must be on air:
Charming viewer email: “Deb great BUT don’t need to look at pregnant body. If you must have her on keep her sitting down. It looks repulsive

Deborah responded to the email on The Today Show, explaining that she was “quite surprised” by it (post continues after video):
Speaking to News.com.au, Deborah said she was “more disappointed than offended that someone would genuinely hold that view in a modern era.”
We wish Deborah all the best with the birth of her third child.
And Deborah? We think you look fantastic.
