In the clip you're about to see, at first, you're going to feel bad for the pretty newscaster. See, she's just trying to do her job when up comes a drunk heckler, interrupting her segment, trying to get on camera. "Heeeeeyyyy!!! I'm from California!!!" the girl who's clearly inebriated says, Solo cup in hand. "49s!!!" It's rude and seems like an incredibly annoying thing to deal with if you're a reporter. (Though I guess it's to be expected if you're in New Orleans around Super Bowl time.)
But your sympathy may or may not fade after you see the reporter's response. "How long have you had an STD?" she asks the girl without as much as a nanosecond's thought.
And the girl gets pissed. But the reporter keeps going, saying, "It's nothing to be ashamed of." This is just weird, you guys. Check it out:
I 100 percent laughed when I saw this, and found the girl interrupting the segment rude as all get out. But to pull out the STD card? Damn! It's certainly funny, but this is live TV. And she's a newscaster! Shouldn't this woman have been a little more ... professional?
Not sure what her bosses are going to think of how she chose to handle the situation. It's certainly amusing, but yikes -- not sure it was the best thing to do on television.
What do you think of how this reporter chose to handle this heckler?
