Reporter Quits On-Air to Join Pot Legalization Campaign: ‘F*ck It, I Quit’
A KTVA reporter in Anchorage, Alaska ended a segment on marijuana legalization Sunday evening by announcing herself as the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club and quitting on-air.
“I — the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club — will be dedicating all of my energy for fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska,” reporter Charlo Greene said. “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but… fuck it, I quit.”
The station then threw back to the stunned anchor, who stammered an apology.
The station later apologized on Twitter and indicated that Greene had been fired, to which we’ll assume Greene took a long pull and said “You can’t fire me, I quit.”
Viewers, we sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.
