Ginger Zee hit back at an internet troll who criticized her for being too skinny.

The critic drew attention to the “Good Morning America” meteorologist’s weight after she posted a video to Twitter Tuesday of herself in a striped dress to celebrate returning to the studio after working remotely.

“I wish Hollywood would stop putting pressure on women to be this skinny,” the Twitter user wrote.

Zee, 40, defended herself, stating she’s “weighed the same” for almost 20 years.

“Hmmm I rarely get called skinny (athletic more often) -have a BMI of around 21 — I would think this is about right for me :),” she responded. “I’ve weighed the same (barring pregnancy) for almost two decades. Definitely not Hollywood.”

Zee, who shares two sons with husband Ben Aaron, has been candid about her past struggles with anorexia, revealing that she began starving herself at age 10 following her parents’ divorce.

“We were moving, I had to make new friends … and I needed to control something, so I was like, ‘I know what I’ll do — I’ll just not eat,’” Zee shared during her tenure on “Dancing with the Stars” in 2016. “[Ages] 10 to 14 was a bulk of my anorexia. I don’t think I even knew how bad it was at that time.”

Zee credited her family, especially her stepfather, with helping her recover.

“My stepfather is a saint. He came into our lives and he taught me about nutrition and self-love, and once I started to learn about taking calories in and working calories off, then I got obsessed with working out,” she said. “Everybody goes through those stages. He helped me get out of that moment in my life.”
