  • Good Morning America anchor and ABC News Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee was criticized on Twitter for her outfit on Tuesday morning's show.
  • The GMA star responded to the online troll in the best way possible.
  • Other TV anchors rallied behind Ginger after her tweeted response.

Safe to say, one online troll is regretting his decision to go after Ginger Zee of Good Morning America right about now.

Tuesday morning, a Twitter user made an incredibly rude comment about the GMA star and ABC News's Chief Meteorologist. "Ginger Zee is so much hotter and credible when she doesn't dress like the weather bimbos that are raining down everywhere," he tweeted.

By the way, not that it matters at all, but she was wearing this:



Ginger has clapped back at Twitter followers before, so it's not too surprising that she decided to hop on Twitter and give this guy a piece of her mind:

"Sorry you feel that way. I have a turtleneck and skirt on ... strange to see that as a bimbo," she wrote. "Fascinated to know what you think I need to wear to make my education (bachelor of science in meteorology) count. And most females on television are degreed meteorologists."

Ginger's post has clearly resonated with her fellow female TV anchors. Meteorologist Lindsey Slater from a Wisconsin local news station tweeted back at her "Wear a suit tomorrow ... with shoulder pads ;)" while a news host in Boise, Idaho, said she was "so done with these people."

Moreover, when one fan begged Ginger to not give "these morons" the time of day, Ginger said she was "happy to reply to positive and negative" comments, noting that she believes sometimes "negative starts a really important conversation and gets the point across."

And to be honest, she's right. The same guy who made that comment later apologized on Twitter. "I made a stupid remark that was misleading and meant as a compliment, but turned out to be STUPID. I DESERVE all of the backlash and apologize for my stupidity at this moment."

Moral of the story? Let folks wear what they want to wear and hold your tongue if you have nothing nice to say - just like grandma always said to do. Second moral of the story: Mess with Ginger, and you'll get the spice.
