Not Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Orlando Host Becomes Cultural Hero After Refusing To Air Another Kardashian Story

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 9.51.19 PMFor centuries, anthropologists will debate what caused the world to give the Kardashians millions for just being the Kardashians. No observable talent. No particular skill set. Just being wildly materialistic and superficial people. One person who does not appear particularly interested in exploring such anthropological questions is Good Day Orlando anchor John Brown who walked off his live program rather than participate in another Kardashian story. In the video below, Brown can be heard arguing about the value of the story of how Kylie Jenner has named a new pet bunny Bruce.

If this was a publicity stunt, it worked. The scene has propelled Brown into a hero for millions who see the Kardashians as the sentinels of the gateway to the American wasteland of television. What I find fascinating is that there is a certain obsession on both sides with those who adore the Kardashians and those who are fascinated by those who adore the Kardashians. If you come to television to watch the cultural car crashes, nothing is more apocalyptic than the Kardashians.

That fascination clearly has wore off for Brown who can be heard on the videotape below saying “Nobody cares about this family anymore!” He is then heard over his live mike saying “I’m having a good Friday, so I refuse to talk about the Kardashians!” He tell his co-anchor: “You are on your own, Amy. I can’t do it, I’ve had enough Kardashians! I can’t take any more Kardashian stories on this show!” The co-anchor Amy Kaufeldt seems shocked as says, “He left me.”

Brown was quickly replaced by a back up host, Rumba 1003 radio host and broadcast guest Jenny Castillo who played along like the Kardashian pet naming was really really interesting. Brown was still not convinced and can be heard saying “I don’t care about this family. I’m sick of this family. It’s a nonstory!”

Brown’s hero status was tarnished a bit when he later posted a video to Facebook of the outburst with an apology. It appears that the owners of the station cannot do without the Kardashians but they could do without Brown.

  1. And the thousands of racist stories likely presented by this show has not been a problem for the man… but the Kardashians are… What happen to love of the market? They K’s are just getting what is theirs and they work hard!!!

  2. Aw, cut Professor Turley a break. Consider this article a blog sorbet; everyone needs the occasional bulletin board palate cleanser amidst all of the legal theory discussed herein. Besides, it gives all the creative content generators trolling the board the chance to make up words like “Kardashistan”. What could be more fun?

  3. “Yet low info voters like you, think that Bush, Trump, etc.. who hide things are just great. Which is the one selling influence?”

    A dissertation? Sensitive aren’t we. Low information voter would be your title considering your defending a future convict. Lmao 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  4. Prof Turley, have we sunk to their level? Another topic please. UGH! We discuss mindless subjects now?

  5. “Thier [sic] viewers think the world of the K family since they are rich, and have no talent. RICH is the only thing they worship”

    Until it comes time to vote… all of a sudden their viewers become victims of the 1%.

  6. When the K’s come on the screen I turn it to another channel. Until I get to Channel Number 5. The advertisers of the K’s do not get my attention. If someone in a social setting starts blabbing about a Kardashian I take a pee on their leg. I am a dog. It is ok to do so. God wills it.

  7. JT is on vacation w/ his family. Quit busting his balls on the posts. He could just have taken a couple weeks off, but instead is making posts for us to discuss.

  8. The U.N. should create a new developing country called Kardashistan. Then, drop them all into the middle of this desert island–to live a meager existence…in isolation.

  9. I’m with issac and the broadcaster, who cares about whether he named his bunny Bruce?

    1. Lisa, Hillary has celebrity because of her hard work and accomplishments while Kylie has celebrity since she has money she did not earn. Her one accomplishment is graduating from high school and looking good. Clinton on the other hand graduated top of her class at Wellsley and graduated from Yale Law, BOTH of which are top tier colleges. Then she went on to become a US Senator on her own, Sec of State, and a best selling author. Trump was born to wealth and privilege, and dodged the draft while people like myself did not. That Faux viewers think that the rich are good because they have wealth, NOT that they have accomplished anything other than breathing. So please tell us what and why the K family deserves any time on the air.

      As for supposedly selling influence, the Clinton Foundation discloses their donors and amounts, while Bush and family foundations do NOT. Yet low info voters like you, think that Bush, Trump, etc.. who hide things are just great. Which is the one selling influence?

  10. What did you expect from a FAUX news station? Thier viewers think the world of the K family since they are rich, and have no talent. RICH is the only thing they worship, thus they are interested in a pet rabbit.
