Janice Dean, a Senior Meteorologist on Fox News, is going viral for her response to an online troll.

According to Inside Edition, a viewer named Joann posted on Facebook a rather biting comment about Dean’s appearance. She said:

“Please stop allowing Fox to dress you in those short skirts. They are not flattering on you. (You’re) an attractive lady, love the 80’s hair, but your legs are distracting every time you walk on screen.”

Although Dean said she normally ignores online bullies, she felt she had to respond to this one. She said back:

“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.”

And while Joann was focused on physical appearance, she didn’t know something important about Dean: she suffers from multiple sclerosis. As many know, the incurable disease that can be extremely debilitating. Dean’s size ten body is a sign that she’s surviving the illness in good health and against the odds.

To top it off, she had another response to Joann: “(You) can always turn the channel if you’re offended by my huge legs.”
