While Kim K’s side boob selfie or Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday party might be of interest to some, the majority of the world probably don’t care that much – if at all. So why has the media gone bat-shit, Kardashian crazy?
Well, one news anchor has had enough. John Brown, the co-host of America’s Good Morning Orlando stormed off set on Friday after refusing to talk about the Kardashians because he was having a “good” day.
“I’m having a good Friday, so I refuse to talk about the Kardashians today. You are on your own, Amy!” he said to his co-host as he walked off while live on air.
Provoked by a story about Kylie Jenner naming her new pet bunny Bruce, after her Dad, Brown didn’t hold back in expressing his distaste in all things Kardashian coverage by continuing his rant off-screen, even after another employee stepped in for him.
“I’ve had enough Kardashian, I can’t take anymore Kardashians… I don’t care about this family, I’m sick of this family!” he yelled.
While his co-hosts tried to make the best of an awkward situation by laughing it off, the enraged news reader wouldn’t have a bar of it. “It’s a nonstory, we’re talking about this family every freaking day on this show. Nobody cares about this family anymore!”
“Don’t you listen to the research? Nobody cares about the Kardashians anymore!” he continued.
Not impressed, his co-host Amy stepped in and replied: “That’s not true, they get good ratings. People watch that show.”
Brown has since taken to Facebook to semi-apologise for his antics and share the video, writing: “Here is the Kardashian rant. Sorry, I lost my mind a bit, although it was partially in jest! I did feel better though after I was done.”
Not so surprisingly his Kardashian rant has been met with a tonne of support via social media, with a lot of people congratulating the reporter for taking a public stand against the reality TV family.
Do you agree?
