A KTLA broadcast is making the virtual rounds via Twitter and Facebook, and it’s awkward as hell.
Viewers were so horrified by the sight of meteorologist Liberté Chan’s arms that an off-screen anchor handed her a sweater mid-report so she might cover her shameful upper body. As if by magic, a hand appears with a grey sweater. “You want me to put this on?” she says disbelievingly. “Why? ‘Cause it’s cold?”
“We were getting a lot of emails,” said the off-camera voice.
Chan later posted a video on Facebook of one of the anchors reading some of the awful comments and emails they received from viewers about her dress. It then devolves in some sort of roundtable about the dress she was going to wear but didn’t. The gist is her cocktail dress made her look like a harlot who’d dragged herself in from partying the night before, just in time to read the good citizens their weather.
Chan has multiple degrees and spent a semester studying at the Sorbonne, where she flaunted her biceps up and down the halls with nary a complaint.
