Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes were spotted out on a date in New York City on Thursday, and commenters are having a field day. They were photographed walking arm-in-arm and smiling at each other on a rainy afternoon, following a public lunch date according to a report by Page Six. Many people seem to think this represents a shifting approach for the formerly private couple.
Holmes and Robach have become a national news sensation in the last two weeks after their affair was revealed to the public.

Many commenters seem amused by Holmes and Robach's transparency, taking it as a sign that they are truly in love and simply can't hide it anymore. Others feel that this is a compounding disrespect to their spouses and perhaps others.
It's clear that a lot of projection is going on in this story, but the commentary is fascinating to read nonetheless. Here's a look at some of the top reactions to Robach and Holmes' latest public outing.
