Charlo Greene, who was a reporter for KTVA in Anchorage, Alaska ended a segment on marijuana legalization Sunday evening by announcing herself as the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club and quitting on-air. She followed that move by quitting her job, and she did it in a pretty incredible way — you can watch the footage in the video above.
Fair warning (if you didn’t get it from this article headline) but there is some profanity involved.
“I — the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club — will be dedicating all of my energy for fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska.” She pauses, then continues on with, “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but… fuck it, I quit.”
Following her statement, the station then threw back to the stunned anchor, who stammered an apology. She then tried to go to a commercial, but couldn’t, leaving for an even more awkward silence on the TV. Keep watching the footage. The station didn’t cut audio, the anchor just doesn’t know what to do. This is perhaps the best part of the entire video.
The station later published a (now deleted) public apology on Twitter:
Viewers, we sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.
