It wouldn’t be the first time that a female news anchor was subjected to the many opinions of her viewers, whether it be about her outfit or her overall appearance, as a result of being in front of the camera on a near daily basis. In fact, it happens so often that ABC News’s Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee almost seemed prepared to respond to criticism when it was aimed at her.

The 37-year-old, who quickly became a fan favorite when she first officially joined Good Morning America back in 2013, recently went on a 3-month maternity leave after giving birth to her second son. And while most viewers have been quick to express how much they missed her while she was gone, one woman had quite a different opinion.

Taking to the television personality’s Facebook page, Lucia Bennett called Zee out on what she calls “bad” styling choices post baby number two.

However, rather than ignore the fashion shamer, Zee hit back.

“Your grandma has got it going on!” Zee replied. “Sorry you haven’t been a fan of the choices of late…but I’m loving it! Wishing you the happiest Wednesday and thanks so much for watching!”

Others also came to Zee’s defense in the comment section, questioning Bennett’s intent in sharing her negative opinion. And when the woman responded saying, “I do love this beautiful lady, that’s why I care,” another stepped in to ask an important question. “Just curious…if she were a man, would you have ever commented on what she was wearing?”

Regardless of Bennett’s opinion, most seem to be loving Zee’s style lately, which is mostly thanks to her wardrobe stylist Jamie Salazar.




Salazar also commented on her client’s clap back to the criticism on her own Instagram page, sharing the Facebook comment on her story and writing, “Thanks for not firing me!”
