"Good Morning America" personality Sam Champion might be about to tie the knot with his longtime boyfriend, but that didn't stopped one of the show's viewers from expressing their opposition to the marriage.

Responding to a congratulatory message to the couple from the "Good Morning America" Twitter account, the viewer wrote:


DebraDompieri
As much as I love watching Sam and , I'm 100% against same-sex marriage. Sorry.

But Champion clearly wasn't feeling any of it. He promptly responded:


Sam Champion
unbelieveable u dont see how rude it is to tweet that to me..have ur opinion but please dont tweet me again

It's been a monumental year for Champion, 51. In October, he became the first co-host of a network morning show to not only publicly announce he is gay, but also announce plans to marry someone of the same sex.

As The New York Times reported in October, a larger celebration for Champion and Brazilian-born photographer Rubem Robierb is planned for New Year's Eve in Miami.
