American news anchor John Brown has had enough of the Kardashian family. While he was live on air in a news program for the Fox 35 channel in Florida last week, he walked out of the broadcast and openly ranted about not being able to take any more Kardashian news. He even shared a short clip of his meltdown on his Facebook page.

On Friday, Brown took to Facebook to share a clip of his hilarious Kardashian meltdown. “Here is the Kardashian rant. Sorry, I lost my mind a bit, although it was partially in jest! I did feel better, though, after I was done,” he said.
The incident occurred during a broadcast of “Good Day Orlando.” Brown was sitting with his co-anchor Amy Kaufeldt on the set. They were talking via satellite to correspondent Jenny Castillo about some showbiz news and had just finished discussing Jennifer Aniston’s recent nuptials with Justin Theroux.
Before they could move on to the next news item, Brown saw the script come up on the tele-prompter. He saw that the next report is about Kylie Jenner and how she named her new pet rabbit “Bruce.” Kylie is the youngest daughter of Kris Jenner’s brood of kids with her ex-husband Bruce Jenner, who is now known as Caitlyn.
The Kardashian-Jenner is often in the news and in tabloids for various reasons. Brown has apparently reached his Kardashian news limit and he didn’t hesitate to let his live viewers know. In the video, he says, “I’m having a good Friday, so I refuse to talk about the Kardashians today." He then gets up off the couch and leaves Kaufeldt alone. He promptly walks off camera and continues ranting.
Another anchor sits beside the abandoned Kaufeldt and tries to offer moral support. She tries to get through the news item, but Castillo quickly runs through it for her. While the two women are trying to get the news over and done with, Brown’s voice could still be heard on-camera. He got even more agitated and started shouting.
"I don't care! This family, I'm sick of this family! I can’t take it anymore! It’s a nonstory! We’ve been talking about this family every freaking day on this show!" he said. “Nobody cares about them! Enough of these guys!”
His colleagues tried to laugh off the incident but in the end, Kaufeldt had to apologize to Castillo. She also tried to reason out that the Kardashians get good ratings and that people watch their show. Clearly uncomfortable, she tries to move on to the next story by asking her companion to scroll the prompter. Watch the video below:
