Ginger Zee has fired back at a social media critic who felt that she was "too skinny."
On July 20, the "Good Morning America" meteorologist posted a video that showed her returning to in-studio work, having been working remotely. In the video, she swapped her street clothes for a striped dress.
"Look what she made me do… the transformation is REAL this morning as I'm back in the studio at @GMA," she captioned the video
One of Ginger's Twitter followers wasn't feeling the new look and felt that something had changed.
"I wish Hollywood would stop putting pressure on women to be this skinny," the Twitter user wrote.
Ginger saw the commented and clapped back, indicating she's "weighed the same" for almost 20 years.
"Hmmm I rarely get called skinny (athletic more often) -have a BMI of around 21 — I would think this is about right for me :)," she wrote. "I've weighed the same (barring pregnancy) for almost two decades. Definitely not Hollywood."
Many of Ginger's fans defended her and ripped the Twitter critic.
"I wish people would stop criticizing people for their looks," one person said. Another added, "One must consider the source. Obesity is the real problem in America, not Hollywood's body images. You look divine."
Ginger, a mother of two, has spoken of her body image before. While participating on "Dancing With The Stars" in 2016, she revealed she was anorexic as a young girl and teenager.
"We were moving, I had to make new friends … and I needed to control something, so I was like, 'I know what I'll do — I'll just not eat,'" she said. "[Ages] 10 to 14 was a bulk of my anorexia. I don't think I even knew how bad it was at that time."
Eventually she found a better path thanks to her stepfather.
"My stepfather is a saint. He came into our lives and he taught me about nutrition and self-love, and once I started to learn about taking calories in and working calories off, then I got obsessed with working out," she said. "Everybody goes through those stages. He helped me get out of that moment in my life."
