She’s “Good Morning America’s” chief meteorologist — but Ginger Zee wasn’t feeling fine and sunny when she came after one hater.
The 41-year-old weatherwoman clapped back at a critic who accused her of “dressing and posing like a retired stripper turned streetwalker.”
On Friday, Zee — whose full name is Ginger Renee Colonomos — directly responded to the troll by sharing a photo to Twitter that showed her on the “GMA” set clad in a conservative white blouse and knee-length skirt.
“I have been missing these harsh disses on Twitter lately,” the TV star wrote in an accompanying comment. “Thank you for the smile. Now, in this storyline you’ve invented, when was my turn to streetwalker? And how did I get into the GMA studios? If this is what a stripper turned prostitute wears… I’m out of the loop.”
Zee’s tweet quickly wracked up hundreds of likes, as well as dozens of comments from fans who praised her for her savvy response.
“You always look classy to me and come across as very intelligent and informative,” one male fan cooed.
“Bless you Ginger for your lighthearted humorous approach to rude trolls. You’re a smart beautiful woman. There’s more of us than them,” another chimed in.
Zee responded directly to that Twitter user. “I get such a kick out of it,” she said.
Indeed, it’s not the first time that Zee has been attacked by online trolls, with one viewer previously claiming the meteorologist mother-of-two looked like a “hooker” because of her hair and make-up.
“Ouch I think @Ginger_Zee needs to fire her stylists (esp. makeup) It’s a tad stark and reminiscent of bad 80’s punk/hooker. A beautiful lady though… more natural would be a better way to go,” that armchair critic wrote back in October 2020.
Zee also responded to that hater. “I didn’t know a lot of “80s punk/hookers” as mentioned below — but unfortunately I can’t fire my stylist, makeup or hair — BECAUSE ITS ME. Y’all are fired up this Friday. I’m loving it. Also, enjoy your weekend!” she wrote.
Zee has served as the chief meteorologist on “GMA” since 2013.
The California-born star has been married to TV personality Ben Aaron since 2014. The couple share two sons, Adrian and Miles.
