Why is it so damn funny when a live news reporter flubs their lines or accidentally swears on camera? We don’t know, it just is. Charlo Greene’s “F*** it, I quit” clip is one of the best live local news blunders we’ve seen in recent history, but here are a few other contenders. (Warning: Parts of these clips are NSFW.)
Charlo Greene might be the most brilliant woman of the week. Her now infamous mic drop, where she says, “F*** it, I quit,” and walks off stage, embodies all of our “take this job and shove it” fantasies. The fun doesn’t stop there, however. The news anchor’s response might be the funniest part of this video. Her deer-in-the-headlights reaction is followed by her stammering, “All right, we apologize for that.” She then blurts out, “We’ll be right back,” which is quickly followed by “Meanwhile…” It’s obvious she has no idea what to do. Greene said she quit her job to dedicate her energy to fighting for legalizing marijuana. Note to self: If you want your message to go viral, stick it to the man on live TV.
