Social Media Defends Dallas TV Anchor Demetria Obilor
What you’re not going to do is come after Channel 8’s Demetria Obilor.
On Friday, a viewer’s Facebook post criticizing the Dallas traffic anchor for being a “size 16/18 woman in a size 6 dress” went viral. Jan, the woman behind the post, wrote, “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.”
Jan is big mad. Don’t be like Jan. pic.twitter.com/ytAKJHMXBy

Twitter quickly came to Obilor’d defense. Even Chance the Rapper chimed in.
Demetria is bad as hell I think Jan is jealous 🤔
