He wasn't wrong, though. Maybe she thinks that looks normal - maybe she's very into fashion - but in the real world not many people dress like that and most men would call it weird and distracting. She works on camera and should be concerned about what the audience thinks.
Why would it be hidden? Everyone that is responding to the business twitter account have their full name on their twitter profile.

Also, why would she care? He initiated the conversation.

I would rather see high waisted pants on women, then some of the plumbers crack pants on men.

I don't know what his Twitter name is and don't care to look. Anyway, it's generally considered against the ethics of journalism to put a private citizen's name in an article or broadcast per mere comments without that person's permission. Even using the words without permission is a gray area. (Submission guidelines on letter-to-the-editor webpages allude to that.)

He posted on a public FB page.

He did not expect to become part of a news story. Media standards call for explicit permission for a seemingly real name to be used. There are members of the media active here, and someone will confirm if he or she reads this thread.

I could care less what others think much less random women I don’t know, why can’t she just ignore the trolls?

But somehow I've managed to mind my own business and refrain from telling friends, coworkers, strangers, and random celebrities this.

Bc what they choose to wear and what they like IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS. What they feel good in and enjoy is their thing. Rock on, dudes. You do you.

Let women do whatever without always having to throw your opinion out at her. It's getting so old.

I think both of these are correct. Most people this day in age are hypocrites. People are quick to criticize others, but become super offended when they're criticized. It never ceases to amaze me what hypocrites people can be and I hear and see it all the time in my daily life. I've also noticed that if people have any type of opinion on anything, they must voice it instead of deciding first if voicing it would actually be productive or just critical and condescending.

Just for the record, I am NOT talking about the posters who I quoted. They both brought up good points that I felt could develop my thought on the matter.

That said, IF you take a job as a presenter of TV news, you better be prepared for fools making comments about your appearance. Not endorsing what the guy said or did...but it comes with the territory.

A bit like a professional athlete complaining when the fans get irate when your team loses or you have a poor game. If you can't take the heat stay out of the kitchen.

Not a fan of Fox News or Fox Business but I recall Neil Cavuto (the Fox business reporter) reading viewer comments. One viewer told Cavuto he has a "big head"...as in literally too big for his body. To Cavuto's credit he read the comment out loud and didn't let it bother him.
Reminds me of the "mean tweets" on one of those late night talk shows. They are so funny.
