GOOD Morning America star Ginger Zee has admitted in an online exchange with a viewer that “no one is perfect”.
The meteorologist has been accused of making a “sneaky” reply after a TV mix-up.
Last week, Zee updated viewers on the winter storm warning in effect over New Mexico.
A viewer claimed that the daytime TV star said during her bulletin that it was snowing in Albuquerque.
The meteorologist later clarified, “I remember talking about the storm moving eastward affecting you all as a forecast since you were on a NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) winter weather report.
“Sorry if this got confusing. But that’s what it was meant for [the] future does not exist; I’m sure I just didn’t explain it well by going so fast (trying to cover so much).”
Max Golembo, a senior weather producer at ABC News, confirmed that the presenters have “limited time” to deliver the forecast.
The viewer hit back, “Thanks for the backhand reply,” before saying, “Nobody’s perfect.”
Zee quickly said that the answer shouldn’t be “backhand”.
She added: “Meteorology has come so far and we’re pretty good, but you’re right nobody’s perfect.”

It’s not the first time Zee has been approached by viewers online.
The US Sun reported how she hit back at a troll who criticized her beauty makeover last week.
Zee took to Instagram to show off her fingernail tips, inspired by the colors of the rainbow.
She further gushed in her caption, “Miles has been asking me to get ‘rainbow nails’ for months…thought this will work.”
The anchor received a ton of comments from fans who admired her nail art, but not everyone liked the design.
One gruffly commented: “For a teenager!”
Zee replied, “With an exclamation mark though.” She also added a cry-before-laugh emoji.
Trolls also called out the yellow ensemble she wore last week.
Critics commented after Zee shared a behind-the-scenes snap of himself alongside celebrity chef and author Ronnie Woo, 38.
She wore mustard yellow pants, a white button-down top under a sweater vest, and a pair of nude heels.
Her dark hair was lightened with what appeared to be blonde highlights.
Ronnie and Zee looked stylish in the picture; However, fans only questioned the moderator’s attire.
One viewer shaded: “I like the different looks but it doesn’t work.”
Last month, cruel internet trolls also made mean comments about their style.
Zee wowed fans after showing off her new hairdo, but one hater claimed it wasn’t a good look.
But the presenter quipped back: “Thanks for your opinion. It’s hair. Just have fun.”
Zee was redesigned after a battle with poor health.
