When awkward banter falls flat on local news, it usually goes unnoticed—unless it’s insulting a coworker’s wardrobe choice on the air.
That’s what happened with Fox 2 St. Louis’s Tim Ezell Tuesday morning as he threw the camera to his colleague April Simpson. Trying to be funny, he commented on her black-and-white striped top by referencing a famous fast-food villain.
“And with that,” he says, “the Hamburglar.”
Simpson wasn’t having it.
When a male anchor can wear the same suit every day for a year without anyone noticing, while his female colleagues get berated for their appearance, what’s in this video is not that surprising.
Simpson, though, has somewhat embraced the viral clip and the memes that popped up.
The hamburgler video has gone viral with over one million views and counting thanks to actor/comedian @KevinHart4real lol lol— April Simpson (@foxonfox) March 4, 2015
