Respected meteorologist hits back at viewer who told her to stop wearing dresses that fit 'snugly' under her breasts on television

A meteorologist for ABC affiliate WATE in Knoxville, Tennessee recently received some rather unwelcome fashion advice from an elderly viewer in a handwritten letter.

The letter tells Julya Johnson that while she's a 'great meterologist [sic],' she would get a lot more compliments if she didn't wear 'those high bodice dresses.'

The letter-writer left no return address, so Johnson posted the letter on her Facebook page along with a polite but firm response to the advice therein.

 
 

 

The letter begins by complimenting Johnson at her proficiency at her job but quickly gets to the point: Johnson's appearance.

'Please change your appearance!' reads the letter from someone who describes themselves as an 'elderly person.'

'Do you Have any dress or dresses that don't fit snugly under your (Bust)? Please! You are Beautiful – But you need a change,' it goes on.

Johnson, rightfully, was annoyed at the unsolicited fashion advice.
