Virgin TV News Anchor Fired After First Words On Air: ‘Gay Fucking Shit’

The Bismarck, ND anchor virgin claims he did not say “Gay fucking shit.” You be the judge.

A.J. Clemente

KFYR-TV apologized during the next newscast:

“We were caught off guard and [Clemente] didn’t realize his microphone was on. And while that was no excuse – we do train our reporters to always assume that any microphone is live at any time – unfortunately we cannot take back what was said.”

Stay classy, Bismarck!  I was more offended by his pronunciation of ambulance:  Ambu-LANCE.

Clemente proudly tweeted the “first story on my own” was April 7th. Perhaps the station was a bit hasty in letting this novice anchor the weekend. The kid drove from West Virginia to his new North Dakota gig and just moved in his apartment April 2nd.

Maybe he’s got a future at MSNBC. …
