Ginger Zee has the last laugh.

On Friday, ABC News’ chief meteorologist, 41, responded with a statement of her own after an anonymous critic decided to poke fun at his outfit.

“I kinda love trolls … plus, an update on #Fiona and the new tropical depression,” she captioned an Instagram post showing off the outfit: a black-and-white patterned pencil skirt underneath a black cardigan and a white collared shirt.

“I put this outfit together yesterday and I absolutely loved it. I couldn’t wait to wear it,” she writes in the post before highlighting a sweet note from a fan who complimented the outfit.

“Thank you! All I put together and this one I was dreaming,” she wrote in response to the fans.

After showing the sweet note, Zee shared a screenshot of a critical comment that read: “Gingerzee dresses and poses like a retired stripper turned street.”

“Oh no,” Zee wrote on top of the comment, along with several laughing emojis.

Zee ended the post by updating her followers about Hurricane Fiona. Later, she took to Twitter to share her thoughts.

“I’ve been missing these tough miscs on Twitter lately,” she wrote in a Twitter post showing the comment and her outfit. “Thank you for the smile. Now, in this storyline that you have invented, when was my turn to be a streetwalker? And how did I enter the GMA studios? If this is what a stripper turned prostitute wears .. . I’m out of the. loop.”

Zee has always been intentional with the outfits she wears, especially when it comes to reducing her carbon footprint. In October 2021, she spoke out about the importance of reusing clothes, urging her followers to consider doing the same.

“Reusing clothes is important to me in my personal life,” she wrote on Instagram at the time, along with an image showing her recycled outfits. “Investing in fewer, higher quality pieces is one of the easiest ways to reduce your footprint. In my job I rent or borrow quite a bit, but there’s nothing like reusing. I realized what why don’t I start working too!”

She later took it a step further by posting a photo collage of herself alongside her colleagues in blue pleather pants, writing, “another way to extend the life of a quality item…share.”
