Naga Munchetty has been praised for her typically brilliant response to a rude troll.
The BBC Breakfast star – who sadly is no stranger to receiving cruel messages on social media – hit back after an online troll described her as ‘poisonous’.
The user in question wrote: ‘Quite frankly, I’d rather someone take a cheese grater to my b***end than go near that poisonous person.’
Sharing the tweet, Naga sarcastically quipped: ‘Happy to help’.
Not surprisingly, her fans loved her reply and immediately defended her from the bully.
One follower wrote: ‘A curious comment in so many ways. Hate is an odd emotion’.
Another said: ‘Nasty comment from someone by the look of should know better’.
And a different fan questioned the nasty message, adding: ‘Why!?… just ZERO need to be toxic’.
This comes after the Radio 5 Live presenter was met with online abuse after an appearance on Saturday Kitchen.
She tweeted: ‘Am winning at life in a small way this morning… Just been refused to be sold a bottle of wine at the local supermarket by the lovely lady at the till because I had no I.D. YES!’
However, one viewer relied: ‘Would have thought after your appalling behaviour on @SaturdayKitchen You would have given up alcohol.
‘I certainly stopped watching @BBCBreakfast after watching some of your performance I couldn’t stand the whole show.’
The comment came after the Beeb programme received more than 700 complaints about Naga and Charlie Stayt’s appearance.
BBC said in a statement: ‘Saturday Kitchen Live’s format allows for an informal chatty style and the guests are encouraged to feel relaxed in the studio.
‘Some viewers found the behaviour and comments of the guests this week to be inappropriate and that they were rude to presenter Matt [Tebbutt]. We appreciate the feedback and we shared it with the Saturday Kitchen team.’
Meanwhile, newsreader Naga previously revealed she likes to deal with trolls in an ‘assertive way’.
She said: ‘I have rather, shall we say, an assertive way, of dealing with people who abuse me on Twitter. I don’t like it, I won’t put up with it.’
Naga also thinks people are more unpleasant on Twitter than they might be in person.
She said: ‘People saying anything on Twitter, they would never say to your face. Not that I’m inviting anyone to say anything horrible to my face in real life – just don’t say anything horrible to me.’
