Florida anchor storms off in Kardashian protest: 'I'm sick of this family'

John Brown of Fox 25 News apologises for walking out on live broadcast over segment on Kylie Jenner’s new pet rabbit Bruce

A Florida news anchor has apologised for storming off in the middle of a live broadcast in protest over the channel’s coverage of the Kardashian family.

John Brown of Fox 35 News posted a video of the incident – which has been watched more than a million times - on to Facebook with an apology. “Sorry, I lost my mind a bit, although it was partially in jest! I did feel better though after I was done,” he said.

Brown walked out live on air during Good Day Orlando on Fox 35 News on Friday when he was faced with the prospect of reporting the news that the youngest member of the family, Kylie Jenner, had purchased a new pet rabbit and named it Bruce, the former name of her father Caitlyn Jenner before her transition.
