Breakfast host Hilary Barry has taken to Twitter to put a Facebook commentator in his place.
Barry, a mother of two, hosts the TVNZ current affairs show alongside Jack Tame five mornings a week.
But she wasn’t impressed when a man called ‘Rob’ blasted her for leaving her kids at home.
Under a recent Facebook post, he commented: “Maybe you should be home bringing up your children Hilary Barry and not leaving them to their own devices.”
The 47-year-old rebutted with: “The assumption my children are home alone because I'm at work. Wow.”
But Barry didn’t stop there, commenting on posts as the thread gained support.
Under the comment, “They're in the car with a bag of chips and a can of coke each, right?” she sarcastically replied: “That’s what all good mothers do right?”
Barry, also known as Hilz Baz, describes herself in her Twitter bio as “an early riser who likes strong coffee.”
