Veteran meteorologist Al Roker has clapped back at critics claiming that at age 67, he’s too old to report live from New Orleans covering the Category 4 storm that hit in Louisiana on Sunday. 

“Al Roker is almost 70 years old, why is this necessary?” one person tweeted amid Roker’s live coverage of Hurricane Ida, per PEOPLE. Another commented, “Maybe let’s not. A 70-year-old in the eye of the hurricane isn’t that much fun to see.

And to those suggesting he’s too old for the job, Roker said “Well, hey guess what? Screw you! Okay! Try to keep up!”

Roker had more to say on Instagram, writing: “For all those worried about me out on #lakepontchartrain a) I volunteered to do this. Part of the job. B) My crew and I were safe and we are back at our hotel and c) for those who think I’m too old to be doing this, try and keep up.”

A black man have to work. At least he is not at home collecting government money, he can work until he drop dead.
