A Fox news anchor lost his temper live on-air and stormed off the set in protest over the Kardashians coverage.
In a segment that reported on Kylie Jenner owning a new bunny named Bruce, news anchor John Brown walked out during a live broadcast of the Good Day Orlando show.
Before leaving the set, he said ‘I’m having a good Friday, so I refuse to talk about the Kardashians!‘
He was then heard off camera – while still miked – shouting: ‘I’ve had enough of the Kardashians’, reported the New York Post.
His stunned co-anchor Amy Kaufeldt was left alone on the couch to carry on the rest of the show.
The surprise storm-out came after the news anchors invited Rumba 1003 radio host and broadcast guest Jenny Castillo to discuss the Kardashians news.
She attempted to calm down the furious anchor, asking him ‘How would you like it if your daughter named her pet John? That’s exactly what Kylie Jenner did.’
But Brown retorted: ‘I don’t care about this family. I’m sick of this family. It’s a nonstory!’
‘Nobody cares about this family anymore!
‘You are on your own, Amy. I can’t do it, I’ve had enough Kardashians! I can’t take any more Kardashian stories on this show!’
A replacement anchor was quickly found to join Ms Kaufeldt as the Good Day Orlando team attempted to calm down a fuming Brown.
The news anchor later posted a video of the incident on Facebook – along with an apology – although he admitted he felt better for having done it.
He said: ‘Sorry, I lost my mind a bit, although it was partially in jest! I did feel better though after I was done.’
The footage has since gone viral with many backing the news anchor’s decision to walk out over the ‘nonstory.’
