GMA's Ginger Zee apologizes for 'lesson learned' after fans spot glaring error despite host feeling 'so confident'

GINGER Zee has apologized, saying “lesson learned” after a fan spotted a glaring error.

The Good Morning America meteorologist, 41, took to Twitter after a commentator corrected her on her pronunciation of “Kearney”.

The social media user, using the name @tracycake, wrote: “Hey @Ginger_Zee in Nebraska we pronounce Kearny, ‘Carney’… for next time,” and then added “love ya!”

Ginger then responded by writing: “And I went into that so confident that I knew that one… lesson learned.”

Many fans of the TV personality, real name Ginger Renee Colonomos, expressed sympathy for her.

One responded: “I hate it when I've been pronouncing a word wrong in my head for years that I've only ever read on paper/a screen.”

“Texas is bad, too, Ginger. We always can recognize new weatherpersons by how they pronounce Buda, Elgin, Carmine, Pedernales La Mesa and Bexar,” another added.

A third person wrote: “To be fair, we have a lot of cities in the KC area that aren't pronounced as they are read. I'm pretty sure, as in New Orleans, there are a lot of other cities who do the same. People from New Orleans don't ever say New Orleens.”

Ginger was visibly moved last month when she appeared on the ABC morning program, following the horrific school shooting massacre in Texas.

The popular host choked up on screen and fought back tears as she revealed she “woke up crying” following the distressing events.

Appearing on the show with psychiatrist Dr Janet Taylor to discuss the incident, Ginger asked for advice on what everyone is “meant to do” in the wake of it all.

Getting choked up, she began: “This morning, like so many parents and grandparents who are watching this right now, I have two young boys who are meant to walk into their schools in just minutes. 

“And it’s taking all of me to not drive up there and not let them go in.” 

Before asking Dr Taylor: “What are we meant to do?”

The psychiatrist told her: “It’s important to understand that we can share how we are feeling with our children and acknowledge our own fears.”

After Ginger was asked how she was doing, she admitted: “I’m shaking.”

She continued: “I went to bed sobbing, I woke up crying and feeling a lot of fear. And I think that anyone can relate and we all feel it."

Ginger’s appearance on that show was her first after she was out for a little bit with Covid-19.
