WATCH ABOVE: More Kardashian news? Are you kidding me? I’m outta here!
Does the seemingly daily dose of Kardashian family news drive you bananas? Why are they even important? That’s the feeling FOX 35 anchor John Brown had when he walked off set on live television.
Brown and his co-anchor were heading into another gossip segment Friday morning about the name Kylie Jenner gave to her rabbit. Recognizing how ridiculous he felt the news was, and citing he didn’t want to ruin his day, he courageously left his partner high-and-dry by throwing his hands up and walking off the set.
The clip has since gone viral. Brown posted it on Facebook the same day and it has since been watched over one-and-a-half million times, shared by over 11,000 users and liked over 20,000 times.
He did return, but only to have a laugh and complain about the ongoing coverage the family receives – sometimes over what he called “non-news”.
Brown does make a good point: how often do you see news reports about other families naming their pet rabbits.
The anchor apologized later that day on Facebook.
“Sorry, I lost my mind a bit, although it was partially in jest! I did feel better though after I was done.”
And we feel better after having a good laugh. Well played, Mr. Brown.
