KTVA-TV reporter Charlo Greene quit her job while wrapping up a report about the Alaska Cannabis Club on Sunday night. Did we mention she owns the organization? Shortly after announcing that she’d be stepping down from her position at KTVA to run the org full time she walked off, but only after giving a “F*ck it, I quit” notice. Talk about going out with a bang.

When asked why she quit in such a dramatic fashion Greene said the following:
“Because I wanted to draw attention to this issue. And the issue is medical marijuana. Ballot Measure 2 is a way to make medical marijuana real … most patients didn’t know the state didn’t set up the framework to get patients their medicine. If I offended anyone, I apologize, but I’m not sorry for the choice that I made.”

KTVA posted a statement on its Facebook page shortly after the broadcast: “We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.”
