An Ohio weatherman exploded on live television when people online asked that "The Bachelorette" be put back on in place of a tornado warning.


Jamie Simpson, a Dayton Ohio meteorologist, went off on ABC viewers who wanted him to end his tornado warning report on Monday night.

The impending weather came during the reality show's airing, interrupting fans who were quick to voice their discontent on social media. Simpson's Twitter response and the video are found below.

In the clip, Simpson said that he had checked his social media and already viewers were complaining saying, " ‘Just go back to the show.’ No, we’re not going back to the show! This is a dangerous situation, okay?"


He implored viewers to put themselves in the shoes of those who might be affected by the tornadoes:

"Think if this was your neighborhood. I’m sick and tired of people complaining about this. Our job is to keep people safe and that is what we’re going to do."

Simpson dismissed claims that it was about his inflated ego:

"Some people complain this is all about my ego: Stop. Okay, just stop right now. I’m done with you people. This is pathetic. This is a dangerous situation here.”


The Fox 45 reporter then took a figurative step back and apologized:

“All right. I’m sorry I did that. It just really bothers me there are people who don’t care about other people’s safety around here.”

In the comment section, a vast majority of people supported Simpson for helping save lives. The resulting tornado killed one person and injured at least 35.

A similar story came out of Virginia when chief meteorologist George Flickinger was also giving a tornado warning. The report did not even fully interrupt a basketball game that was going on at the time.


WSET instead did a split screen of the tornado warning and Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals, but it was enough to infuriate fans who called in and voiced their anger.

On a more light-hearted note, meteorologist Khambrell Marshall shared the screen with an adorable dog named Angel during his weather forecast in October last year.

The small pooch casually came up to Marshall and, like the professional he is, the weatherman sweetly scooped him up and continued his report. The video went viral and Marshall was praised for being the animal lover he clearly is.
