Ginger is the chief meteorologist and Kenneth is the national news correspondent, so they typically don’t run into each other that often during their shifts.
Like any public figure, Ginger has faced criticism and backlash from fans, volgelinge, and viewers.
After posting the photo to Facebook, one of her followers commented, “Who’s raising your kids?”
Ginger had the perfect response for that troll.

The 41-year-old followed up her post with another one after she noticed the rude comment.
“This morning I posted this photo on Facebook,” she captioned the video, referring to the one above.
“One of the first comments was, ‘Who’s raising your kids?'”
She followed up with, “My response?” and then proceeded to show what she wrote.
“Ek is, with the help of my husband and our nanny. You don’t come from a home where both parents work? Ek doen. And it was amazing,” sy het gese.
She ended the post with a video of her and some advice, “And a reminder. When people have an opinion/critique, it says more about them than it does about me.”
Ginger continued, “I’m so peaceful/grateful for the family I’m creating while fulfilling my career goals. It’s not for everyone, but I’m not everyone. I’m me.”
The meteorologist captioned the post, “Wat beteken Tickna meer o'beng, I welcome criticism, even of my parenting. I think it’s an important topic and I don’t take the responsibility lightly. Dit gesê, what’s “good” for you would not be good for me. I hope other new parents can feel the support and understanding that comes with all different parenting structures. There is no right or wrong if love, support, and guidance surround the child.”
” I am so lucky to have grown up with a mom and dad that both worked but also loved me and raised me with the help of my grandma, babysitters, and eventually my step-parents. Everyone’s village looks different. The point is, it takes one and I’m lucky to have them,” she ended the post.
Verlede week, Ginger blasted another troll as they criticized her weather report.
She gave a report all about rising temperatures, just as Summer was beginning.
GMA shared a clip of it on Twitter, writing with it: “The first official day of summer is breaking dangerous temps for millions of Americans. @ginger_zee has the latest forecast.”
One troll on Twitter replied to the tweet, sê, “Ja, just like us humans, the weather changes.”
Then another sarcastically replied about Ginger’s report: “Nope..you can’t beat the heat…at least not on GMA.”
“It would have been interesting to hear about the ice snow and really frigid conditions up in the white mountains where a Hiker died a couple of days ago but nope..stuck on HEAT!”
Seeing the comments online were about her, Ginger got on Twitter to respond to the trolls, “We spoke about @MWObs yesterday— you must have missed that! Watch every single second then critique me please.”
The fan then responded, “My bad…I don’t watch Gma all the time.”
Ginger has been off the morning show for a bit and returned this week with an announcement.
She revealed in an Instagram post that she and her filming crew suffered a flat tire while driving on the rural roads of the Rockies.
They had a tight turnaround to get to the airport before realizing their flight was delayed.
