Viral video footage shows a man confronting a local female TV news reporter and camera crew outside of a supermarket in the wee hours of the morning.
“Okay, well, there’s somebody who’s being… okay, we’ll talk to you guys in a little bit,” the reporter says as her monologue about people panic-buying supplies is interrupted by a man talking behind her.
“It’s your fault that people are freaking out here,” the man says. “You are the ones that are at fault. This is no worse than the flu.”
The cameraman then exchanges words with the angry citizen, who says, “I’m reacting to how other people react.”
“Okay bye,” the reporter says dismissively.
“F*ck you,” the man snaps at the camera crew, later adding “f*ck all your stupid sh*t, f*ck your editors. You all are the scum of the earth.”
“You know, and I don’t even blame the Chinese, I don’t blame them at all. They did everything right. It’s you all who are hyping things up. Goodbye, have a good morning,” the man concludes before walking away.
“Stay classy,” the camera operator calls out as the female reporter turns around and shakes her head while rolling her eyes.
