TV meteorologist in revealing dress given sweater – on the air

LOS ANGELES (WNCN) – A meteorologist in Los Angeles was stunned on camera Saturday when a co-worker thought her dress was too skimpy – and offered a gray cardigan.

“What’s going on?” Liberte Chan asked when a anchor Chris Burrous handed her a gray sweater.

“You want me to put this on?” she asked. “Why? Because it’s cold?

“We’re getting a lot of emails,” Burrous said.

“What? Really?” she said.

“There you go,” he said.

“I look like a librarian now!” she said.

“That works,” Burrous said.

Social media erupted over the incident.

Burrous apologized on Twitter, explaining that he offered up the sweater “in jest but I see how it seemed. I am sorry.”

Chan later addressed the incident on Facebook Live, according to US Weekly, and said, “I really wasn’t offended. People are kind of spinning it and saying that it was sexist. …  I thought it was kind of funny.”
