Neal Boortz Blames 16 Year Old Girl’s Panty less Yearbook Photo on Her Weight

Conservative talk show host Neal Boortz blamed a Florida 16 year old girl’s club yearbook photo that accidentally exposed her private parts on her weight. Boortz said, “If she wasn’t overweight the visible panty line wouldn’t be a problem.”

Here is the audio from Media Matters:

The incident in question involves a 16 year old high school junior at Sickles High School in Citrus Park, Florida who is too embarrassed to go back to school after her private parts were accidentally exposed in a club yearbook photo. The girl’s mother is demanding that all of the yearbooks containing the picture be rounded up, destroyed, and new yearbooks be issued without the picture.

Boortz blamed the girl’s weight for the situation, “This 16 year old girl at Sickles High School in Tampa, Florida. First of all, she’s a little hefty. She’ s still young enough that she hasn’t blimped up to the point that she is deserving of being an object of ridicule, but she is a little hefty, and her mom is a blimp, but this does play in here. ”

He then broke down step by step the decision making process of the 16 year old girl who was trying to avoid a panty line, but ended up with her private parts exposed. Boortz said that the girl has learned the consequences of bad decision making. In the same segment Boortz later said, “If she wasn’t overweight the visible panty line wouldn’t be a problem.”

I don’t think this incident has anything to do with her weight. Boortz is an idiot for trying to blame this on the size of the young lady. I really hope that Boortz doesn’t have kids, because with his attitude, they are going to need decades of therapy. The hypocrisy here is that Boortz himself is no prize. In fact, some have noted in the past that he is pretty damn ugly.

The girl in the photo is caught up in a high school nightmare, and the last thing she needs is some mentally challenged talker discussing her weight. I do think that the girl has to go back to school sometime, because if she doesn’t, she will never get past this. I don’t think that there is a reason for her family to sue. It was an unintended accident on everyone’s part.

The yearbooks have been handed out, and the damage has been done. I think everyone involved should be more focused on helping this kid through the situation than pursing legal options.

  1. We all know 16 year olds do dumb things. Not wearing panties, to an adult would is a bad decision, but to a teen it was a way to avoid a panty line. I agree about the suspect motivations. Instead of hiring an attorney, I think that this young lady could use a therapist.

  2. This school should be held responsible for distributing child pornography. The photo would have been checked out before publishing. Where are the police? That mother is quite right about suing, and she should watch her kid very closely. That child is at risk.

  3. …and why does this cynical stereotypical bastard have a show. No wonder I never heard of him prior to today. What is his hatred against overweight people. He needs to look in the mirror and see he is a dumb, four eyed, bald piece of shit.

  4. Are you commenters just commenting on this guy’s bullshit? If anyone of you looked into the issue, you would have seen the CNN interview with the girl and her mother both sitting on the couch wearing DAISY DUKES…. Ummmmm….. Hrmmm…. Also, you probably haven’t seen the pictures from the girls myspace page showing underage drinking & smoking WITH HER MOTHER….

    So, basically, you are saying that the school and/or yearbook company should be looking at every picture to see to see if it shows the slightest hint of genetals? Isn’t that a bit CREEPY??? What are you going to do, hire a registered pedophile to do it?

    If the girl & her mother want the yearbooks pulled, and re-published, there should be a law-suit involved. EXCEPT, it should involve the mother PAYING for the collection, destruction, editing, re-printing and distributing of the new year books. BULLSHIT should peoples taxes pay for that crap when her skank daughter did it intentionally. Expulsion anyone?

  5. ok. i just found out about this and the school should be held responsible. its an accident on her part and the school isnt owning up to its fault. this IS distribution of underage nude photos WITHOUT consent. thats more than enough for one hell of a lawsuit. and you guys that are bitching about taxes, how does a few thousand sound to take back destroy/sensor and pass out new books compared to a few MILLION they could get from a lawsuit. bottom line, the school system is at fault and needs to rectify this.

  6. Boortz bullies children pretty regularly. He ridiculed 13-year-old Bethany Hamilton for being “stupid” after her arm was bitten completely off by a shark. He’s lambasted two or three teen drivers who were involved in accidents that killed passengers. And he humiliated a nine-year-old disabled boy over a period of a full week in 2007: http://newsprism.wordpress.com/2008/03/07/breaking-news-boortz-ridicules-9-year-old-with-learning-disability/

    What a jerk. One day a parent is going to catch up with Boortz and give him the spanking he deserves.
