Ohio weatherman loses it live, on-air after Twitter users whine about The Bachelorette

The miffed meteorologist has a point.

While it can be pretty easy to find reasons to complain about meteorologists, there are times in which they provide us with an invaluable service.

Weatherman are historically pretty bad at their jobs, but that is likely due to the enormous difficulty of their jobs.  Predicting the weather is a lot like herding cats in that way.

How many times have you looked at the extended forecast and thought, “it’s far too early for this to be correct”?  Chances are it was probably earlier this week.

But when severe weather strikes, the local meteorologist is often the only person with the tools to keep us safe.  That can mean some unfortunately-timed interruptions of our regularly scheduled programming, but it’s a small price to pay for safety.

When Twitter users began complaining about just such an interruption, one weatherman simply snapped.

A meteorologist for Fox 45 in Dayton, Ohio snapped at viewers who complained on social media about a tornado warning that interrupted Monday night’s broadcast of “The Bachelorette,” saying that the cutaway was due to a “dangerous situation.”

“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,” Jamie Simpson said during the live broadcast.

Simpson had plenty more to say on the subject.

“Think about if this was your neighborhood. I’m sick and tired of people complaining about this,” Simpson said. “Our job here is to keep people safe, and that is what we’re going to do. Some of you complained that this is all about my ego. Stop. It’s not. I’m done with you people, I really am, this is pathetic.”

The miffed meteorologist would apologize later in the broadcast, but his point still stands.

Video of the meltdown is a must-see.
