Jacquie Beltrao, 57, hit back after a Twitter troll criticized her appearance on Saturday night. The presenter was clearly taken aback when a user, named John, wrote in a now-deleted tweet: “I have to turn off Sky News when Jacquie is on.
Following the exchange, dozens of Jacquie’s fans rushed to the comments to defend her.
Chris clapped: “Classic answer Jacquie!”
Marie repeated: “What cruelty! Sorry, you have to read stuff like that.
“Like my mom says, if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. We all love you in our house.
“People are entitled to their opinion. What matters is that I’m fit, healthy and fit for duty and I’m thankful for that even though the alarm says 3.45 (and my bottom teeth are crooked)!!
“See you tomorrow morning, hopefully. »
It comes after Jacquie was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time in 2020, having first beaten the disease in 2014.
In a tweet shared in February, Jacquie explained that she was “living on a tightrope” but received good test results.
In messages written on scraps of paper, Jacquie said: “This #breakingnews is the only news I wanted this weekend.
“I live on a tightrope – scan to scan – living life in 3 month increments.
“Thank you to everyone here for your support and positivity – it makes a difference.
“The scans have arrived and…I have NOTHING!” Yippee! »
The scan showed her cancer was gone, but she added that she knew that didn’t mean she was completely cured.
