Weatherman Calls Out Viewers Complaining They're Missing The Bachelorette Due To Tornado Warning

May 30, 2019

This is a video of Dayton, Ohio (that's where my brother was born!) FOX45 weatherman Jamie Simpson slightly losing his cool during an emergency tornado warning because viewers took to social media to complain the warning is interrupting The Bachelorette and to "just go back to the show." Now I'm not saying these are the exact people who deserve to get tornado'd, but they 100% are. Now if you'll excuse me... *calling X-Men hotline* Hello, Professor X? Yes I'd like to speak to Storm, please.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Joshua S, who agrees if you think The Bachelorette is more important than your safety, I agree. Every show is, plus commercials.

    Seriously though, the guy has a job to do making sure people in harm's way, or potentially so, know danger is coming.

    Between any T.V. show and a tornado, I'd rather know about the tornado.

  • Good on him, though I would suggest that anyone watching The Bachelor (or any of that tripe) would benefit from being sucked into a screaming cyclone and
    subsequently slammed through a cinder-block wall.
    But that's none of my business (sips tea whiskey).

    I don't pay for cable so a network can decide to take my shows offline to warn about severe weather 2 states away, and we get these same notifications on our phones now anyway. I'm with the people on this one.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Also relevant... Tornadoes happen all the time. The Bachelorette is different every time.

    Is it though?

  • sizzlepants

    Yeah because all the old people who still watch broadcast tv (which from what I understand account for the majority of cable subscriptions) are all hooked up with phones and tablets as well, right?

    And did you just admit to theft?

    Sniff sniff, I think your pants are burning....

    Don't mess with the weather casters, they're witches and warlocks that control the weather for fucks sake! They can appear as floating heads and hands! And stand unharmed in hurricanes and floods! And solve Rubik's cubes!

    I could see why people would be complaining if the weatherman kept going over the same old stuff repetitively and ad nauseum, but I still don't see why anybody would rather watch the Bachelorette (or reality tv in general).

    Now, if they interrupted my Jeopardy episode, then I'd definitely complain.

  • Doog

    Don't eff with Jeopardy!

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    Especially right now.
