I was recently on Facebook and I saw a link. And it was about a news reporter by the name Liberte Chan. She had to change outfits at the last minute. She switched to an all black dress. It was sleeveless but it was still classy not hoochie at all. Her chest was fully covered, and the dress was at knees length. No back was out and the dress wasn't even form fitting. While she was live on air reporting the weekly forecast her boss reached over and you could see his hand reaching out to hand her a sweater. She then laughs as if she thinks its a joke . Because that's of course awkward especially to be done live on television. Her boss then tells her to put the sweater on because they received too many complaints. I was bothered at the fact they handed her a sweater live on television like that. I'm sure the reporter was super embarrassed. Then I feel it was so silly for people to call in and complain about her dress. I feel it had to just be jealous women, because shes a pretty woman that had a cute dress on. And the dress was totally classy.

Liberte Chan who is a meteorologist on the KTLA Channel 5 morning weekend news, was handed a sweater to cover her dress in the middle of a weather report. It seemed a little awkward because she was caught off guard. It was done on live TV which does not help. The reason given was because they were receiving a lot of e-mail complains from viewers. Her response was "what's going on?" "you want me to put this on? Why? 'Cause it's cold?" The morning show anchors at KTLA are jokers, they have fun on live tv but this was a little out of taste. This is the second time that they have done that to her. Last time it was because her dress blended in with the green backdrop.

I watch KTLA on weekend mornings because my favorite TV anchors and of course meteorologist Liberte Chan is on. I saw this and was like "Did they really just do that? On live television?" Yes they play around a few times but this was just like what is going on type of situation. The black dress seemed fine and nothing was wrong with it in my opinion. This was a backup dress because she had issues with the one she was wearing to begin with. Alicia is absolutely correct. That dress was classy and not showing nothing. I do not know what people were complaining about. People will always judge no matter what.
