BBC Breakfast reporter Naga Munchetty has taken to Twitter to call out a troll who mistakenly thought she was presenting the early morning programme.

Ben Thompson, who wore a suit, and Victoria Derbyshire, who wore her hair in loose curls with a pink high-neck top, were on the show and the latter interviewed Secretary of State Grant Shapps.

She grilled him thoroughly over P&O boss Peter Hebblethwaite after he admitted he broke the law after not consulting over the mass-sacking of 800 workers.

Viewers called him out on social media as a “hypocrite” after Shapps said he should resign, due to the fact that his party breached lockdown rules several times throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

One hater wrote: “Just had to turn Naga [on BBC Breakfast] off again. Interviewing Grant Shapps, then starts the normal childish: ‘Na, na, na, let’s blame you’. So tiresome.”

Unfortunately for the troll, they had made a fatal error as Naga was replaced by Victoria Derbyshire on the show, alongside fellow reporter Ben Thompson.

Calmly, Naga put the naysayer in their place: “Sally, I'm not at work today. Maybe you should turn off your default setting of hate instead? Have a lovely day,” and signed off with a kiss.

Fans were amused at the blunder and sent their own replies to the troll.

One called the mix-up “embarrassing” and asked the hater to confirm why they don’t like Naga.

Another said that they “can’t even troll very well” as “Naga wasn’t there".

One Twitter user tried to look out for Sally by sending her a video of some fresh spring flowers with the caption: “You seem really angry about stuff that isn’t real, so I’m just sending you some spring joy and wishing you a lovely day.”

They continued: “Hope you can overcome your bitterness at everything and turn your rage into kindness.”

Elsewhere, Naga also recently lashed out at online comments after the hashtag “ungrateful cow” began trending.

False detainee Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe spoke about the UK Foreign Office after she was released from her imprisonment in Iran, six years after her capture.

After five different foreign secretaries attempted to free her, she was eventually released but online trolls decided to take things further.

Naga circled the topic on her Twitter trending page and simply wrote “wow” in the caption.
