Liberte Chan, an attractive meteorologist for KTLA, was forced to cover up with a sweater this Saturday morning after some viewers began complaining about her cocktail dress. There’s a full video of the event below, which is definitely worth watching. It begins with a behind-the-scenes clip of Liberte talking about her cocktail dress. The video then cuts to her report, when a magical grey sweater shows up on the right-hand screen.
“What’s going on? You want me to put this on? Why? Because it’s cold?” Liberte asks. Then in the background you can hear an anchor reply that, “We’re getting a lot of emails.”
In case you don’t believe that people would spend some time on their busy Saturdays actually taking issue with that, here are some of the emails:
“Liberte Chan looked like she stayed out late at a party and came to work in the same dress. Not appropriate for the morning weather report. The show’s producer should not have allowed her to do the report in a cocktail dress. Handing her the sweater during the report was also in very poor taste. Should have given it to her afterwards. All in all, poorly done.”
Funny enough, the whole handing over of the sweater thing really has people more upset than her cocktail dress. #SweaterGate quickly became a trending topic on Twitter. But don’t take our word for it, check it in the video below.
