TV Meteorologist Absolutely Goes Off On ‘Bachelorette’ Fans Complaining About His Coverage Of A Deadly Tornado

The Bachelorette fans may not appreciate this, but an emergency weather alerts always take precedence over a reality competition show that has high stakes over nothing.

Isn’t your life more important than seeing whose hearts will be broken? Meteorologist Jamie Simpson definitely thinks so.

Locals in Ohio did not forecast the Dayton Fox 45 weatherman losing his cool while warning residents of a  “catastrophic” deadly tornado sweeping its way across the region. The warning coincided with the airing of a new episode of the reality show.

The Bachelorette viewers were peeved and vented their frustration over the unwelcome interruption meant to inform everyone for their safety.

Simpson sounded off during a live update and made sure locals got their priorities in order.

“I was just checking social media, we have viewers complaining already, ‘Just go back to the show.’ No, we’re not going back to the show, folks. This is a dangerous situation, okay?”

“Think about if this was your neighborhood. I’m sick and tired of people complaining about this. Our job here is to keep people safe and that is what we’re going to do.”

He responded to the criticism about his character and called out the “pathetic” situation.

“Some of you complain that this is all about my ego. Stop, okay? Just stop right now. It’s not. I’m done with you people, I really am. This is pathetic.”

Many agreed with Simpson.


Simpson is a respected and affable local news personality, and it was gratifying for viewers to see him finally unravel.

Simpson managed to strike a nerve among those with a guilty conscience.

Fox 45 is a Sinclair-owned dual Fox and MyNetworkTV affiliate which owns Dayton’s ABC 22, the network on which the popular dating competition airs.

Simpson’s urgent broadcast may have saved lives. Now, back to our regular programming.
