This is far more important. This is an abc news exclusive, with the tv viewer who sparked outrage for his e-mail to a local tv anchorwoman, criticizing her about her weight. Abc's alex perez has the story. If jennifer's offended, i truly apologize to jennifer. That's the last thing I wanted to do. Reporter: Hisail sparked outrage across the country. And after days of hiding out, abc news tracked down kenneth krause, as he arrived for his midnight work shift and spoke to him exclusively. Did you feel the e-mail you sent was offensive when you wrote it? Oh, no. I had no intent to offend anyone. Reporter: Krause is the face behind the infamous e-mail, sent to lacrosse, wisconsin, news anchor, jennifer livingston, criticizing her being overweight. Surely you don't consider yourself a suitable example for young people, girls in particular. Reporter: Livingston, who has gotten support from celebrities like ellen, as well as our own abc affiliate, wxow, who rallied around jen. I'm so proud of jennifer livingston. He's trying to shame me into losing weight. That's not being helpful. That's being a bully. Reporter: But krause says he's not a bully. Are you a bully? I'm not a bully. I'm in no position to bully her. She's a big-time media permit. I'm a working stiff. Reporter: Livingston, the mother of three young girls, says she works out regularly, but a medical condition makes losing weight tough. She says she has a thyroid problem. Did you consider that before writing the e-mail? Of course. I've was obese as a child. I've been fighting with that all my life. I can empathize with that. Reporter: Krause says he's trying to cast a spotlight on the negative effects of obesity. Do you wish you handled things differently? It's possible I could have revised things. But I never meant to heart jennifer in any way. I apologize for that. Reporter: An apology, he hopes will put all this behind him. Krause volunteered to help livingston get that weight off. But no word on whether she'll take him up on that offer.
