This Meteorologist Was Asked To Cover Up On Air

by Robyn Smith

A meteorologist was asked to cover up Sunday morning by her co-worker, who was playing a joke on her, according to her personal blog.

Liberté Chan, who works for KTLA in Los Angeles, was given a gray sweater on air that made her look “like a librarian” in response to emails saying her sparkly little black dress was too inappropriate.

Many viewers took social media by storm, angry that Chan had to cover up just because some viewers disapproved of her LBD and dubbing the situation #sweatergate.


“I was surprised since I hadn’t seen any of the emails and didn’t think there was anything that inappropriate (the beads/sequins were probably a little much for the morning, but what girl doesn’t like something that sparkles?!), so I played along and put on the sweater,” Chan said on her blog, Life of Liberté.
