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.

Simpson, though, has somewhat embraced the viral clip and the memes that popped up.
