Kat Von D stormed off the set of a TV news show minutes before she was supposed to be interviewed -- because she was ticked they mentioned Jesse James.

Kat Von D was supposed to appear on Good Day LA today to promote the new season of her reality show LA Ink, but she stormed out of the studio after producers aired a pre-approved clip of Kat getting a tattoo of Jesse James' face.

Sounds like someone's a little touchy about breaking off her engagement.

Kat tweeted about the incident immediately afterwards.

"Dear GoodDayLA, thanks for the waste of a perfectly good morning," she wrote. "Lack of compassion n respect for each other never fails to dissappoint [sic] me."

That's all well and good, but her own network sent the clip over and it was pre-approved.

Good Day LA host Jillian Barberie couldn't believe what happened and went off on Kat live on the air.

"I would say to you Kat, bring it up to TLC, the company that sent the clip of your reality show with Jesse in it. We were just trying to promote your show. Have we other clips to show, I don't know, but if you're putting your life on a reality show and then you're not willing to talk about it, it seems kind of..."

"Contradictory? Hypocritical?" chimed in her co-host Steve Edwards.

"We sympathize, but of course we were going to ask about it. That's the clip that they sent us," Barberie said.

A show producer confirmed there were no rules set up ahead of time that Kat wouldn't talk about the breakup.

"Damn Kat Von D just walked out of studio before our interview cuz we showed clip with her and Jesse from her show LA Ink," Barberie later tweeted. "Well her company sent the clip!! Krazy Kat fight!"

Kat Von D and Jesse James ended their engagement over the weekend.
