Bachelorette. BOO HOO!
from the beginning! A Tornado watch was issued last night through to 2;00am,
local time for OH. The Fox 45 meteorologist was giving live updates on the
Tornado, which would cause significant damage to the Dayton area later on that
…Then he started to see complaints come in on social media.
In the video below, listen to what Simpson had to say on the complains – transcription can be read underneath.
“Just checking on social media, we have (some) folks complaining already, ‘just go back to the show’.
No, we’re not going back to the show folks! This is a dangerous situation, okay?
It’s your own neighbourhood. I’m sick and tired of people complaining about this. Our job here is to keep you safe and that’s what we’re going to do.
Some of you complain that this is all about my ego. Stop, okay? Just stop right now. It’s not! I’m done with you people, I really am. This is pathetic!”
on went to apologise and say; “it really bothers me that people don’t care
other people’s safety around here”.
users – in particular Twitter – took to the platform to praise Simpson for his
work following what has been called, ‘”the scariest night of their lives” –
