Kori Sidaway, who works for CHEK News in Victoria, British Columbia, posted a photo on her Twitter of the critical message.

“This screenshot was sent to me and my colleagues in an attempt to shame and monitor my body. Well, I’m taking back my power, “Sidaway wrote in the tweet.” For the nameless cyber warriors trying to shrink women into a dress or body part: this generation of women can’t stand harassment. “
In the tweet there are two photos: one of Sidaway from the news, as well as an image of the torso of a woman with a plunging neckline, much deeper than the one Sidaway wore on the air.
In the screenshot, the email had “LATEST NEWS”

The email continued to criticize Sidaway, writing, “Too much cleavage can break your news. Don’t let that happen to you. Episode: Sunday September 6, 5-7pm”, apparently referring to the time Sidaway was on the channel.
“Attached are 2 photos. What you think we see is what we actually see, “claiming that Sidaway’s photo on his newscast resembled the deep V-neck shirt seen in the other photo.
“Dress appropriately, it was hard work getting there. Thank you[,] Vancouver Island Cleavage Patrol. “
Those online didn’t appreciate the trolling more than Sidaway and voiced the reporter’s support on Twitter.

Last year, a reporter from Tennessee had a similar encounter with a spectator.
According to Nina Harrelson, TV news host with WREG in Memphis, a stranger approached her and said, “You might look great on TV!”
Harrelson responded to the comment on his social media pages, criticizing the man and stating, “We are not your eye candy.”
He has received praise from others on social media for speaking out against inappropriate comments.
