METEOROLOGIST FORCED TO COVER UP LIVE ON AIR OR WAS SHE??

Forget the weather it was a meteorologist’s dress that created a storm, or so we thought. Meteorologist Liberte Chan was delivering the 8am weather report on Saturday when anchor Chris Burrous gave her a cardigan to cover her dress. My first thought was, “damn, she has some serious haters if they took the time to email”. But it turns out that she was only ‘playing along to a joke’ by covering up her ‘inappropriate cocktail dress’ during the morning weather report.

Well the joke worked but it caused a bit of an uproar. Twitter users criticized KTLA and Burrous for ‘publicly shaming’ Liberte and not standing by her. Chan maintains wearing the cardigan was her ‘simply playing along with my co-anchor’s joke’. ‘My bosses did not order me to put on the cardigan,’ she said.  The news station came under fire for being ‘deeply misogynistic and degrading as hell’ for the move, however Chan has stressed that she ‘was not ordered by KTLA to put on the sweater’.  Looks like her stunt didn’t go over so well.  Unless of course she just wanted publicity because then cha-ching!
