Savannah Guthrie Claps Back at Today Show Viewer Who Blamed Producers for Her 'Fugly' Dress
Mindy Kaling and Adam Rippon applauded Savannah Guthrie for her response to a fan who called her rose-colored dress "fugly"
On Tuesday’s show, Guthrie, 46, opted for a rose-colored long sleeve dress by Derek Lam, which a viewer described as “fugly” on Twitter. “@SavannahGuthrie Don’t the producers @TODAYshow have any wardrobe standards? It’s one thing that you often wear odd choices, but today’s dress wins the prize for #FUGLY. #WhatWereYouThinking?” the critic’s since-deleted tweet said.
Guthrie soon responded, writing: “I dress myself! Don’t blame the producers!”
Actress Mindy Kaling supported Guthrie and commented, “I love your outfits! Literally wish there was a website to find out what everything is.” Guthrie thanked Kaling, writing, “You’re the cutest ever. Let’s share a closet.”
And figure skater Adam Rippon applauded Guthrie’s response, commenting: “Omg. I love you so much.”
In another tweet, the mother of two also laughed off other negative comments about her dress. “Twitter in a nutshell,” Guthrie wrote along with a laughing emoji.
This is not the first time Guthrie has clapped back at viewers and fans.
Guthrie clarified matters after receiving tweets and comments congratulating her for having a baby on the way. “It is just the dress. Excuse me while I go burn it,” Guthrie tweeted.
But the journalist revealed she wasn’t offended because the comments were so kind.
“They mean well,” Guthrie said during the Today show the next day. “We have the best viewers, they’re so nice, and they were so cute. They’re like, ‘Congratulations!’, and I’m like, ‘Congratulations on my second gym membership that I need to obviously go to.’ ”
