“I’m having a good Friday so I refuse to talk about the Kardashians today! I’m sick of this family. I can’t take it anymore!”
During a live broadcast on Fox 35, Florida newsreader, John Brown, refused to present coverage of news about the family Kardashian.
The news anchor left the area, saying that he was “sick of the topic.” The incident in the TV studio headed the top of the most discussed trends on Facebook.
Brown had to read the morning news that the half-sister of TV star Kim Kardashian, 18-year-old Kylie Jenner, got a pet rabbit and named it in honor of his father (Bruce Jenner, who has recently changed his sex to female).
I’m having a good Friday so I refuse to talk about the Kardashians today, you’re on your own Amy
– he said, storming out of view from the camera, and leaving alone his co-anchor, Amy Kaufeldt, to carry on the rest of the show.
Behind the scenes, he developed his idea, saying:
I can’t take any more Kardashian stories on this show… I don’t care, I’m sick of this family. I can’t take it anymore
The incident in the studio Fox 35 has quickly become one of the most discussed in social networks in the US segment. On August 11, Brown wrote in his twitter account: “The #1 trender all Facebook today. This is surreal. I’ve never lived through anything like this”.

John Brown is my hero. I, too, am tired of the media's obsession with the Kardashians.
