Get Stuff We Love
The weekend's weather forecast brought in more than just sunny skies and high temperatures for one meteorologist at a local station in Syracuse, New York.
CNY Central meteorologist Molly Matott received backlash from a viewer for her outfit choice on Saturday — and what she had to say to her haters will seriously inspire you to wear whatever you want.
WUSA 9 reports that a female viewer who "didn't want to be mean" wrote to Mattot to leave a comment about her on-air appearance, but didn't hold back from openly bashing the anchor's "underarm boob fat" and "garish jewelry."
"I don’t know, of course, who dresses Molly and I’m not trying to b (sic) mean or unkind but the way she is dressed today looks very much like she came directly from a night on the town to work!
"Good grief, have a little decorum and be more understated and conservative in your attire. There are so many things going on here and none of them are good, the range is from underarm boob fat, garish jewelry, clashes in color, AND makeup....I just turned on my television set and was shaken to the core (almost) at the sight of all of that going on this early on a Saturday morning!"
Sheesh, talk about unwarranted criticism. Can a girl just do her job?
Matott quickly took to Instagram to share her emailed response. “My job is to give the best and most accurate forecast in an understandable manner. … I’m sorry you chose to focus on my appearance and ‘underarm boob fat’ instead. Perhaps next time you wish to pen such an unnecessarily nasty email to a television professional, you too remember that less is more,"she wrote according to the screenshot.
Before setting her account to private, Matott shared the following caption alongside it:
"I was feeling WAY TOO GOOD about myself today to NOT reply to this nasty email (top left). If anyone else has any comments on my "underarm boob fat," I'll take them now.
"UPDATE: this person wrote back and could not understand my reaction to their 'constructive criticism.' Girl bye."
We love a gal who can poke fun at herself and speak out against body-shaming at the same time. You go, Molly!
