The Today Show meteorologist Al Roker feels that there is just too much judgment out there. He has been faced with a lot of criticism in his career so he knows what it is like to be judged. So, what else does the sixty-nine-year-old father of three have to say? Keep reading for more details.

Al Roker Feels There Is Too Much Judgment

Being judged is a part of being famous and it is synonymous with the job. Sadly, fans can be way too harsh and forget that celebrities are just regular people with feelings. They make their own decisions based on what they think is best for them and do not need outside noise though it is inevitably going to happen. Al Roker is a fan favorite and beloved by many but for many years, he was overweight. That did not mean viewers loved him any less but they did fear for his health.

Eventually, he underwent gastric bypass surgery in 2002 which helped him lose 100 pounds. However, according to Us Weekly, he was still the subject of scrutiny. Roker noted that he “took a raft of stuff” after he had the weight loss procedure. Now, why is he bringing that up twenty-two years later? Kelly Clarkson recently admitted that she had some help in the weight loss department. When she started her new season in late 2023 of her talk show, she was considerably slimmer, and many believed she was on Ozempic.

While speaking with Ozempic-user Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly shared she was using a weight loss shot but emphasized it was not what people thought. More so, she explained why she was on it:

“Mine is a different one that people assume but I ended up having to do that too because my bloodwork got so bad.”

Of course, fans felt duped that she had not been transparent from the get-go and that is where Al Roker came in. On the Tuesday, May 14th episode of Today, he had this to say about people criticizing Kelly:

“There’s too much judgment going on. People, as long as they’re working with their doctors and being healthy about it, people ought to back off and let them live their lives.”

Kelly Didn’t Know

The one thing that Kelly Clarkson and Whoopi Goldberg both agreed on was that they had no idea how much weight they had gained. It was not until Kelly had filmed a show and was going to put it out that she saw herself in a new way. Yet, she noted that people assumed she was depressed and that led to weight gain but in fact, she was happy. However, when her health became an issue, she had to get help and it seems that she does not need anyone’s approval. Now, Al Roker is speaking up and telling everyone to leave Kelly alone and quit judging.

Do you agree with Al or do you think she should have been open as to how she got so slim? Or, is it nobody’s business? Let us know in the comments below.
