6. Guess.

First she was a woman. That creates an immediate neanderthal response.
Secondly she is African-American. That was greeted by the usual racist jackasses.

However, after her first week or two, those who watched realized she was a very good anchor. In addition, she has a very warm personality. Robin is perceived as a truly genuine person. She could also convey humor, straight up knowledge, gravitas or whatever was needed for a story.

The true assholes never stopped. However, that's true across the board if you read comments or responses to tweets. They are beyond vile.
