Nashville forecaster fills map with nasty comments she got for breaking in during ‘The Masked Singer’
WZTV meteorologist Katy Morgan was verbally attacked online after she broke into “The Masked Singer” (how dare they!) for severe weather coverage in the Nashville market — and Morgan decided to put her weather computer to good work to create a different kind of weather map.
The new map Morgan whipped up show a map of the viewing area with white boxes containing “some” of the comments she received.
The comments she showed, preserved here for posterity, read:
- “Get yo azz off the TV”
- “Blonde-haired b*tch”
- “Tell the weather girl to shut up.”
- “When did Miss Piggy get on ‘The Masked Singer’?”
- “Weather people are not important.”
- “STFU get off.”
- “B*tch we tryna watch ‘Masked Singer,’ get off doe.”
- “Hey lady! Go take a pee break!”
- “Inconsiderate camera hog.”
“The Masked Singer,” in case you don’t know, is a show where celebrities, completely covered in an elaborate costume, sing in front of a panel, who spend most of the time whispering speculation and comments on the performance.
You know, real life altering and educational television.
As Morgan puts it in her tweet, “I will always put lives ahead of a TV show.” There are a variety of ways and reasons local TV stations “cover” network programming due to the weather.
The area experienced flooding yesterday that killed two people.
Yesterday 2 people died due to flooding. 2 tornadoes caused damage. Unfortunately, I had to cover The Masked Singer to warn people about the dangerous conditions moving in. Here are some comments I received while on air. I will always put lives ahead of a TV show. pic.twitter.com/DmRf2cSZzq
