Fox News meteorologist
hit back after an internet troll went after her with a derogatory comment about her legs.
Dean penned an op-ed
in which she acknowledged an insulting comment she sometimes gets:
“Dear Janice please stop allowing fox to dress you in those short skirts. They are not flattering on you. Your an attractive lady, love the 80’s hair, but your legs are distracting every time you walk on screen.”
Dean, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis over 10 years ago, offered this response:
“Fox doesn’t dress me. I dress myself. I’m sorry if you don’t like my legs. I’m grateful I have them to walk with. You’re right. I don’t look like the typical person on TV, and I’m proud to be a size 10. Imagine that! You can always turn the channel if you’re offended by my huge legs. Hope you don’t mind. I share your post with everyone on my FB page. All the best, Janice”
Dean came on Fox & Friends
to talk about this on Thursday, and she discussed how that insult really got to her. She also said that fans have been sending plenty of support her way, and she’s thankful for still being able to walk despite her condition.
“I’m so thankful for my big strong legs,” said Dean. “I want people to know that you know what? We have to be nice to each other, I think now more than ever.”
