White Woman Boycotts Thick, Black Beauty #trafficbae


On Wednesday, Facebook user Jan Shedd stewed in frustration over the curvaceousness of a stunning reporter.

Apparently, ABC Dallas recently hired voluptuous and beautiful traffic ensemble reporter Demetria Obilor — affectionately known as #TrafficBae — and the middle-aged White woman is up in arms over it.

On Friday, Twitter user Mother of Draggings posted Shedd’s saltiness for all of Black Twitter to see.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?creatorScreenName=EBONYMag&dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=926508650947940352&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebony.com%2Fnews%2Fwhite-woman-demetria-obilor-double-standards%2F&siteScreenName=EBONYMag&theme=light&widgetsVersion=e1ffbdb%3A1614796141937&width=550px

“Has anyone seen channel 8’s new morning traffic reporter,” Shedd wrote on Facebook. “She’s a size 16/18 woman in a size 6 dress. She looks ridiculous. I understand that when I watch Channel 8 I’m going to get biased reporting and political correctness, but clearly they have taken complete leave of their senses.”

Any viewer could see Jan’s standards of dress probably weren’t as prevalent as the level of hating that was taking place. So Black Twitter took it upon itself to speak truth to the source of Jan’s true indignation and celebrate Obilor’s beauty.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?creatorScreenName=EBONYMag&dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-1&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=926544147024089088&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebony.com%2Fnews%2Fwhite-woman-demetria-obilor-double-standards%2F&siteScreenName=EBONYMag&theme=light&widgetsVersion=e1ffbdb%3A1614796141937&width=550px

Even Chance the Rapper had to get in on the conversation.
