This isn't the first time The Biggest Loser has come under fire. But this time, the show's producers are fighting back.

"It's been hard to sit back and listen to an attack and not come out and call afoul, but I have done that for many years," the show's co-creator and executive producer Dave Broome tells PEOPLE exclusively. "I've held back for many years on this because I didn't want to give it any credence or credibility. But I think at this point we just feel like there needs to be a balance with this story."

The "story" Broome is referring to stems from comments made recently by Kai Hibbard, who was a contestant on the third season of the NBC weight-loss reality competition.

"The whole f–ing show is a fat-shaming disaster that I'm embarrassed to have participated in," Hibbard told the New York Post on Sunday. "You're brainwashed to believe that you're super lucky to be there."
