Meteorologist Bullied Over Pregnancy

A Pregnant Meteorologist Is Being Bullied by Viewers Who Don't Like Her Wardrobe Choices

Cindy Morgan is not the first meteorologist to receive hate mail about her pregnancy, but she may be taking one of the boldest stands against it — and she has the full support of her network behind her.

But for people, strangers for that matter, to bully a pregnant woman for her seemingly conservative wardrobe choices because they don't fit into their idealized views of what an expectant woman should wear is beyond disappointing. Take your time and spend it on something more important. Your meteorologist's maternity clothing choices should be the least of your worries!
