Although she was loved by Atlanta’s fellow citizens and was well appreciated for her job, some of Jennifer’s remarks have attracted a lot of criticisms.
During her forecast of weather around the Caribbean Island of Hispaniola in 2016, Delgado talked about deforestation in the area, and remarked that “Hispanic children ate trees.” People wanted her fired from The Weather Channel as they were offended by her remarks, but Jennifer did not apologize, saying that her observation was a fact.
