Robin Roberts Jokes About Her Serious Injury

Robin Roberts frequently posts videos on Instagram. Fans have come to look forward to her daily affirmations, which she posts each morning before Good Morning America airs. Tuesday morning’s video looked a bit different than usual though. Robin was sporting a cast on her right arm.

Before there could be any speculation, she addressed the injury. Joking she said, “You should see the other guy. Why I oughta…” Then she proceeded to act like she was boxing the camera with her fractured wrist.

Then, she informed fans that she had taken a fall on the tennis court recently, resulting in a fractured wrist. Although she has been an athlete for years, this is Robin Roberts’ first fracture and “hopefully” her last, she noted.

Despite her being hurt, she delivered an inspirational message to fans. They flooded the comment section with well wishes for the GMA veteran.

“Me too…right arm, pickleball court, 2023! But God brought me so much insight through my recovery, and…I’m back on the court!” one fan wrote. Another person empathized, writing, “I’m with you in the broken bone club Robin. Broke my right humerus almost a month ago.” A third commented, “Aww, Robin! I hope you heal quickly and keep your spirits high! Praying for your swift healing and all those on this thread who need it. Amen!”

Good Morning America Co-Hosts Express Concern About Robin

Fans weren’t the only ones concerned about how Robin Roberts was fairing with her fractured wrist. Her co-host George Stephanopoulos asked Robin how she was feeling during Tuesday morning’s episode. “I’m feeling much better,” she replied.

Laughing, she continued, “I cannot confirm nor deny if I’m on pain meds.” Then she assured everyone that she was feeling a lot better. Gio Benitez, a fill-in host at GMA, said, “I know it’s been really painful, but no one makes a cast look cuter.”
