Daily Mail shamed a presenter for wearing 'granny pants' and women reacted in the best way


ON SUNDAY, DAILY Mail Australia published an article about presenter Sam Armytage, which highlighted the fact she was wearing granny knickers.

A woman wearing big knickers while out and about? Stop the presses! Inform CNN!

The article was published with the headline:

Sunrise host Sam Armytage dares to bare with granny panties showing a visible line as she steps out in Sydney … after slamming rumours she’s dating Channel Seven colleagues

And as you might expect, the piece provoked outrage from readers with many accusing the Daily Mail of “shaming” and “bullying” Armytage.

Following the outrage, the Daily Mail amended their headline to this:
