    A woman is under heavy fire on social media after she attempted to blast a news reporter for wearing what she deemed inappropriate clothes.*
    On Wednesday, Facebook user Jan Shedd posted about Channel 8's traffic reporter, Demetria Obilor, in Dalls Texas complaining about her dress fitting.**

    'Has anyone seen Channel 8's new morning traffic reporter? Her name is Demetria Obilor & she's a size 16/18 woman in a size six dress and she looks ridiculous,' Jan said in the post that has since been deleted.

    On Wednesday, Facebook user Jan Shedd posted about Channel 8's traffic reporter, Demetria Obilor (pictured), in Dalls Texas complaining about her dress fitting


    'Has anyone seen Channel 8's new morning traffic reporter? Her name is Demetria Obilor & she's a size 16/18 woman in a size six dress and she looks ridiculous,' Jan said in the post that has since been deleted

    '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. I'm not going to watch Channel 8 anymore.'

    Shared by the likes of Kinfolk Kollective and Mother of Draggings, the picture of Jan's post quickly circulated and garnered a lot of backlash towards the woman - who is white - and support for the Nigerian American reporter.

    'BIIIIIIG MAD,' said Chance the Rapper.*

    'Jan just mad she look like aged leather strips with her lazy eye don't mind her,' added another.*

    A different user said: 'Jan is big mad. Don't be like Jan.'

    'That old sack a s**t jan mad demtria slayin that dress all while jan dresses saggin off hee a*s and t*****s,' said a user.*

    'I'm bout ta turn on channel 8 right now! I need to c Miss Demetria...as for u Jan, #ByeB****,' said actor David Alan Grier.

    Another user spoke on the racial implications of Jan's attack and added: 'This is precisely how women of color are treated in the workplace wearing the same exact shit the white girls have on.'

    The news reporter took to Facebook on Friday to address Jan and the rest of her 'haters.'

    She said: 'This is the way that I'm built. This is the way I was born. I'm not going anywhere, so if you don't like it, you have your options.'

    Obilor thanked those that supported her and showed love to her fans.

    Jan would later go on to talk about how she was attacked by the 'racist mafia' after making the racist post.

    'Frankly, I didn't even notice that she was black. I was shocked that Channel 8 would put someone on the air that dressed so provocatively,' she said, according to Ebony.

    'The racist mafia did not appreciate the criticism and now they are harassing me.'*

    The woman's claim that she was somehow unable to see Obilor's race but couldn't see past her curves left a lot of people confused and further annoyed.*

    She has since been blocking those that criticize her. *

    I bet she wouldn't mind bottle blondes like Marilyn Monroe or Dolly Parton squeezing their ample curves into tight dresses. Ugh.

    I don't think that dress is professional or appropriate for a reporter. It has nothing to do with her size IMO.

    A lot of weather/traffic reporters dress like tarts. It depends on the market and the station, I guess.

    Agreed. And that's a bad ass job. Almost as bad as Kardashian.

    I'm guessing Jan hasn't said boo about the microskirts on the "reporters" at her beloved Foxnews.
