Meteorologist Jamie Simpson has had enough of “The Bachelorette” fans complaining about interruptions to the regularly scheduled programming.
A tornado in Dayton, Ohio caused at least one fatality, dozens of injuries and damage to homes and businesses. Although some fans of Monday’s “The Bachelorette” argued this was not important enough to interrupt the reality television series.
“I was just checking social media,” said Fox45 weatherman Simpson live on the air. “We have viewers complaining already. ‘Just go back to the show.’ No, we’re not going back to the show, folks. This is a dangerous situation, OK?”
“Think about if this was your neighbourhood. I’m sick and tired of people complaining about this. Our job here is to keep people safe, and that is what we’re going to do,” he exclaimed. “Some of you complained that this is all about my ego. Stop. It’s not. I’m done with you people, I really am, this is pathetic.”
Bachelorette Hannah Brown agreed with Simpson. She told viewers, “be safe. ‘naders are no joke.” She also thanked the residents of Dayton “for the love.”
Brown has starred on season 15 of “The Bachelorette” since May 13 after placing seventh on season 23 of “The Bachelor”.
