John Brown, Good Day Orlando anchorman, has had enough of talk about the Kardashians. The anchor got up and walked off the set after hearing the famous family’s name mentioned one too many times, Mashable is reporting.
The Kardashian-induced episode took place last Friday but is only now gaining attention in the national media. It happened during a segment with a celebrity correspondent, who noted that Kylie Jenner had named her new pet rabbit Bruce, presumably after her father (Bruce, now Caitlyn, Jenner).
“I am having a good Friday, so I refuse to talk about the Kardashians today. You are on your own, Amy. I’ve had enough Kardashians. I can’t take anymore Kardashian stories on this show.”
Another anchor steps in to take Brown’s place, but he can still be heard off-screen, yelling.
“I’m sick of this family. It’s a non-story! We’re talking about the family every freakin’ day on this show. Nobody cares about this family anymore!”
John Brown isn’t the only member of the media who has had enough with the Kardashians. Last month, Mercury News writer Karen D’Souza made it clear that she, too, has had it up to here with the famous family.
“Let me be clear, I have no beef with [Kim Kardashian] personally. She has just as much right to monetize her talentless hack self as the next guy. And I am actually in favor of Caitlyn Jenner’s transformation in a political sense. But, for me, the rise of the Kardashians has come to represent everything that has gone wrong with our social media-obsessed culture in the digital age. Kim sits at the pinnacle of all inanity. While some gain fame and money by virtue of their gifts, their skills as an actor or a musician for instance, the Kimster and her minions have risen to the apex of pop culture for No. Reason. At. All.”
John Brown, for his part, later joked about the Kardashian meltdown on his Facebook page.
“Sorry, I lost my mind a bit, although it was partially in jest! I did feel better though after I was done.”
And the Good Day Orlando host’s fans have his back.
“You’re the man John, thanks for saying on air what any person with a shred of intelligence has been thinking since this whole Kardashian circus started.”
Have you, like Good Day Orlando host John Brown, had enough of the Kardashians?
