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.
Jan is big mad. Don’t be like Jan. pic.twitter.com/ytAKJHMXBy

“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.
Demetria is a whole seasoned Thanksgiving meal and Jan is mad she’s a leftover tuna casserole https://t.co/SK0JiXUgz0

This is precisely how women of color are treated in the workplace wearing the same exact shit the white girls have on. pic.twitter.com/kAhRs0zX9B

Even Chance the Rapper had to get in on the conversation.
This my city and no complaints here… I get up faithfully every morning to watch the traffic now. #hateuscuztheyaintus

Obilar posted a video to Twitter on Friday where she thanked social media users who fended off the Shedd’s negativity.

The Texas woman later claimed Obilor’s ethnicity was of no relevance to her disgust and said the “racist mafia” was being too critical.

Nice try, Jan. Again, you can’t be us. Make peace with it.
