[Video] Weatherman Flips Out At Viewers Upset That Tornado Forecast Interrupted The Bachelorette

An Ohio weatherman lashed out at viewers when they complained that his tornado coverage had interrupted Monday night’s broadcast of “The Bachelorette.”  Meteorologist Jamie Simpson was live on Fox 45 in Dayton when he flipped out and began scolding folks for caring more about the ABC reality TV show than a twister tearing through the region.  “I was just checking social media, we have viewers complaining already, [saying] ‘Just go back to the show.’ No, we’re not going back to the show, folks. This is a dangerous situation, okay?” Simpson said on the air.  “Think about if this was your neighborhood. I’m sick and tired of people complaining about this…Our job here is to keep people safe, and that is what we’re going to do,” he said.  The forecaster then got personal — defending himself against attacks on social media.
