The popular TV meteorologist was shocked when a viewer only known as Mary sent her a scathing email.
Mary decided to reach out to Hinson to let her know her stomach had been protruding out of her dress.
Mary took offense to the weather reporters' body confidence and intended to make her feel ashamed.
The email had the opposite effect and Hinson decided to hit back on the troll on social media.
All power to her!
Here's what went down...
Tracy Hinson is a ray of sunshine.
Even when the weather is reaching extreme temperatures...
Which was why Mary's comments were even worse.
Tracy was not going to let a troll win.
Dear Mary, yes I do watch my air checks. NO I will not be strapping myself into a girdle because you don’t like my… https://t.co/N5GtkaV3ke— Tracy Hinson (@Tracy Hinson)1570840056.0

Tracy restored the appetites of her fans.In a political stand against fat phobic Mary, many of the people responding to Tracy declared they would eat carbs that night.
Tracy isn't going to stop eating mac and cheese for anybody.
Few things in life are more beautiful than this sight right here ❤️🧀 #MissMacNCheese https://t.co/fL6EjqEcXD— Tracy Hinson (@Tracy Hinson)1571097262.0

What's a girdle you ask?It's basically a contraption used to bind the stomach, giving one an appearance of a flatter tum. Now frankly, I think girdles sound awful. I bet you a pretty penny anyone that wears a girdle must suffer from chronic stomach ache.
Tracy's message was clear...
@tvalwx Tracy sounds like the kind of gal that I’d love to unapologetically smash some extra carby pizza & beer wit… https://t.co/sewTSNjUTm— Alyssa Andrews (@Alyssa Andrews)1571016689.0
The days of the skinny b**ch rule are over.
Women are no longer afraid to eat what they want.Thank god that the days of Diet Coke and girdles are behind us.
Female television personalities have forever been the victims of body shaming.

Young women need role models like Tracy.Role models that say it's okay to love macaroni and cheese... in fact, role models that say: "Isn't macaroni and cheese great? Let's have seconds!"
Tracy is the mac and cheese queen!
@tvalwx Tracy, I ever see you out, the mac and cheese is on me! You are a queen!— kholleman (@kholleman)1571079163.0
Cheese makes life better.And melted cheese between slices of bread? Now you're talking!
Ever tried a grilled mac and cheese toastie?Boy, if not you really haven't lived... These bad boys are where it's at. I'm sure Tracy would agree.
Have things changed?
@tvalwx Although it’s tough to see that nothing has changed in 30 years (do they still comment on your wardrobe, ha… https://t.co/GFjM3pRZey— Kimm Viebrock (@Kimm Viebrock)1570978648.0
