MSNBC Cameraman Takes Hilarious Tumble: ‘Walking Backwards is Hard’

An MSNBC cameraman took a rough spill on-air while covering students marching against gun violence outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

As MSNBC’s Rehema Ellis interviewed students who experienced the school shooting last month, her cameraman walked swiftly in front of her — only to tumble over while attempting to walk backwards.

“You’re a senior — ooh!” Said a shocked Ellis whose interview with a student was cut-off after the fall.

MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson chimed into the chaotic scene from the network’s headquarters: “And the cameraman down, let’s make sure he’s OK.”

“Walking backwards is hard to do,” observed Ellis.

“Let’s make sure he’s doing OK there, as walking backwards is never easy,” added Jackson.

The stumble aside, the Parkland, Florida protests were just one of the dozens of marches and school walkouts that took place in an attempt bring attention to gun violence solutions. Today was chosen as the date as it marks one month since 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Chants of “We want change!” rang throughout the country, with many of these protests being led by children and teenagers who have recently gained national attention by their peers chiming into the gun reform debate.
