Naga Munchetty, 45, has grown a tough skin over the years and she’s not about to let rude comments and remarks get to her now. As a presenter on one of the most widely watched news shows in the UK, the BBC Breakfast host couldn’t help but respond with a sassy reply to a Twitter user who called for her to be axed from the show for being “false” and “annoying”.
Very constructive indeed (does that sound genuine enough?)
In the now deleted post, the troll also claimed that the 45-year-old doesn’t have a “nice or watchable bone in her body”, something Naga sarcastically accepted as constructive criticism.
The original post read: “I really wish they would axe her. She is so false.
“She hasn’t got a nice or watchable bone in her body. She is so annoying I have to switch off @BBCBreakfast.”
As an advocate for the Be Kind movement to stop online bullying and harassment, it wasn’t long before Naga decided to out the user for their harsh comments.
“Thanks for sharing your thoughts,” she began before mocking their claims she is false.
“Very constructive indeed (does that sound genuine enough?)”
While some voiced their concerns about her interview tactics, the majority of fans rushed to the comments section to back the presenter, with one writing: “Naga is one of the most watchable people on telly!! Take it from someone who watches a lot of telly,” they joked.
“Carry on being fabulous, Naga!”
Another agreed: “We rather like Naga here, but if we didn’t we would just turn over, not be rude about it.”
A third said: “Well I miss Naga on BBC Breakfast, she’s a great presenter.”
“Naga has the most chilled vibes on telly, love her,” a fourth commended.
Others branded her a “breath of fresh air” and thanked her for doing her job properly.
And if viewers weren’t convinced about Naga’s priorities when it comes to on-air interviews, some may think again after she took the time to reassure an upset guest who had to cancel their appearance her Radio 5 Live show at short notice.
The presenter sent her well wishes in a touching response to a member of the public who confirmed they wouldn’t be able to make the show.
The guest, who goes by the name of Grassroots Coach on Twitter, wrote to the presenter and sent his apologies.

“Sorry to @TVNaga01 – I was going to be on your show this morning regarding the huge problems with teenage kids and their schoolwork.
“In the end, I was too upset and just couldn’t face talking about it.”
He added: “Apologies again to you and the guy who phoned me.”
Upon seeing the post, Naga sent her love and urged him to take care of himself.
“Sending my best wishes,” she responded.
“Your wellbeing is far more important than a conversation on the radio.
“No need to apologise at all. Please take care.”
BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One and Naga’s BBC Radio 5 Live begins at 10am to 1pm Mondays to Wednesdays.
