Fox News anchor Julie Banderas issued a fiery response Monday evening to a woman who demanded she stop tweeting in Spanish.
"If you are American, speak English," the individual tweeted to Banderas, who is daughter of a Colombian woman and has been tweeting in Spanish while in the country.
The Fox News anchor publicly responded — and did not mince her words.
"I'm in Colombia and writing a Colombian airline so I'll speak Spanish. When I fly back to NYC I'll still speak Spanish. You sir may continue to speak the language of ignorance," she tweeted back.
