News.-Meteorologist called out for sexy dress — on live TV

Meteorologist called out for sexy dress — on live TV


A Los Angeles meteorologist was forced to cover up her strappy black cocktail dress on live TV — causing social media to heat up over what some are calling #sweatergate.
Liberte Chan was in the middle of her Saturday morning weather update for KTLA Saturday when a frumpy gray sweater appeared on the right side of the camera.

“What’s going on? You want me to put this on? Why? Because it’s cold?” Chan asked as she slipped the sweater on over her sparkly Aidan Mattox dress.
“We’re getting a lot of emails,” anchor Chris Burrous quipped back, later claiming that viewers were upset she was wearing a New Year’s Eve-style dress for the broadcast.
“What? Really? I look like a librarian now,” she said, looking slightly confused.
The Twitterverse rained down criticism on the TV station, and Burrous, with many calling the on-screen drama sexist.
“This is so demeaning, why couldn’t they pull her to the side beforehand? Why on cam? Make her feel like that? Dress was fine,” wrote @pinksostuckup.
“What? Really? I look like a librarian now.”
“Nobody buys your excuse. You humiliated her on air. Shame on you,” @crowsight tweeted.
Burrous apologized for the awkward moment in a response to that tweet, writing, “I completely understand meant in jest but I see how it seemed. I am sorry. I hope you will give me another chance.”
Chan said Sunday during a Facebook Live chat with fans that she was surprised the incident became “this big thing.”
“I really wasn’t offended. People are kind of spinning it and saying it was sexist. I thought it was just funny,” she said. “I think we just played into the viewers saying you should come up so he brought me over a sweater. But not offended, I don’t think it was sexist.”
This is not Chan’s first wardrobe-related incident that made headlines. Back in March,Chan’s seafoam green dress blended with the green screen and caused the weather patterns to show up on her clothes.
