Local Anchorage reporter Charlo Greene has decided to leave her job as a newswoman to focus on legalizing marijuana in Alaska. OK, you’re thinking, nothing too interesting there.
But the way she decided to leave her job was absolutely, positively spectacular.
After reporting a segment on pot on Sunday night, Greene said this:
“Everything you’ve heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska. And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f–k it, I quit.”
Cut to an extremely discomfited anchor.
KTVA also posted a separate apology on their website:
We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.
