A reporter for a CBS television affiliate in Alaska caused jaws to drop Sunday night when she exploded the F-bomb, quit her job on the air and then walked off camera.
Charlo Greene was reporting for KTVA-TV in Anchorage, finishing a story on a push by a pro-pot group to legalize marijuana in the state.
That’s when she admitted on the air she was, in fact, the head of the marijuana group on which she had just reported.
WARNING: The video of Greene’s departure contains an obscene word:
“Now everything you heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska,” she said.
“And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f-ck it, I quit.”
The station’s camera then switched to a tongue-tied anchor who immediately apologized, trying to regain her composure.
KTVA apologized on its Facebook and Twitter pages and claimed Greene was “terminated,” though online commenters noted she appeared to quit before she was fired.
Greene has since posted an explanation on YouTube, titled “Why I quit.”
The explanation video contains the same obscene word:
“There comes a time in each and everyone of our lives when we much choose to continue to spectate or stand up for what’s right,” Greene said.
“If responsible adults should be allowed to choose how they like to drink, why differentiate my toke from your beer?” …
“Advocating for freedom and fairness should be everyone’s duty. I’m making it my life work to uphold what America stands for truly. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, ideals that now need to be defended.”
