WBKO/ABC Weatherman makes bad boob joke on TV!

Posted by Jason Triplett Thursday, September 13, 2007

**UPDATE 9/20** I have removed the video because I believe WBKO and Chris' apologies are sincere.

I mostly stick to entertainment on this site, however this story has caught my attention, so I thought I'd share it with you.

"A local Weatherman in Bowling Green, Kentucky simulates drinking breast milk. WBKO-TV's Chris Allen then licks and grabs a fake boob. Sexual...all obscenity/harassment seems to be accepted and just a "laugh" at Gray Television, Inc."

This was in the tag of the original video file. Now I live in the area, and watch the show every day. I personally don't think this was aired. However, as a news person, he should know better than to do this stuff ON CAMERA. After all, WBKO is an ABC affiliate.

We do not know who leaked this video, but the comment in the tag about sexual obscenity and harassment leads me to believe it is an internal link...someone who has experienced that sort of thing.

So here is the controversial video in question. What do you think? Do you think it was funny? Offensive? Innapropriate? Sound off in the comments section!

    I feel his actions were justified.

    Oh, like other people in other work places don't tell jokes? How about you? Have YOU?

    Was it smart? No.

    However, I think whoever "leaked" what obviously wasn't for public consumption should be fired.

    Chris is an active, caring member of our community. He promotes so many philanthropic causes such as musical instruments for children who can't afford them, emergency readiness, etc. I hope this does not ruin his career and especially hope he continues his wonderful contributions to our community.

    Chris,
    Is well known and loved in our area and he likes to laugh and cut up, the morning show wouldn't be the same if he wasn't there with his sense of humor and caring atitude. I hope however leaked this has enjoyed a laugh at a good mans expense remember what goes around does come around.

    I attend Church with Chris and my family watches him every morning and he is a good man. Everyone has made jokes but he just got caught. Let it go and move on. We are not to judge anyone.

    This guy is a creep. No, I personally have never done anything so immature at the station I work for, but then again, I'm in a higher market than this dope. Such behavior should not be tolerated by ABC or any news outlet. They need to send this clown packing in a hurry to maintain any credibility whatsoever. Oh, and whoever he burned sure did get some awesome revenge over there at WBKO.

  6. I am a female and people are going to have fun at work. Someone had to be very upset at him to post this on the internet. Someone who wants to start trouble for someone else who is not happy with their own life. Who doesn't do crazy things like that at work? You got to have some fun at work.

    I live in the same community as this person and I can tell you that it is hillarious and innocent. If anyone should be offended it is me, or my type anyway. I am a thirty-something mom who breastfed my kids and attend church regularly. Give me a break. If there was a gigantic naked computer man or woman on the wall of your work could you resist? However, if my husband were splashed all over the media doing this the only "boobies" he would see for a while would be computer generated.........The lesson here should be, "Do resist!!" It is much more respectful.

    I live in the area myself. I've been watching WBKO for, well, my whole life and I think this is the most hilarious thing I've ever seen. I love Chris Allen because he is a normal guy who does normal things. People exaggerate everything to the point where you can't even joke with a FAKE BOOB anymore. This bit of tape wasn't aired for the public to see until "someone" decided to embarass a perfectly good man. I will continue to watch WBKO in the mornings while I am getting my children ready for school. I just hope this doesn't cause such a stir that we lose a good weatherman.

    I don't know Chris personally, but I have always watched him on WBKO.
    I think he is a good person who was only having a little fun at work and no one other than the people there was supposed to see it. In my opinion, and it may only be mine, I think if anyone did anything wrong it was the person who leaked this video. I hope it has made them feel good that they have caused this man so much embarrasement and have HURT his wife and kids at the same time over a joke. FYI, I am a Wife, Mother, and Grandmother WHO HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR. If he was my husband, as a wife, I wouldn't be too happy with him, but mainly because it was leaked to the world to see. If I had seen it otherwise I probabably would have said "YOU ARE CRAZY" and laughed while saying it. I hope people will realize this as what it was, A JOKE and drop it. Take this video off of here and think about this. What if it was your Father, Brother, Son, etc. and yes, it could happen. Most people after all are HUMAN. I'm going to pray for Chris. Not because of his joke, but that he gets thru this without too much trouble to follow. But i will also pray for the person that leaked it. That they will try to be a better person and not hurt people intentionally over something so silly. There may be more to the story, and if there is, it should have been handled differently.

    All you people must have your heads up your asses. Read any fucking pamphlet you get when you start employment ANYWHERE. The guidelines for what is considered sexual harassment are cut and dry. Guess what? Chris committed sexual harrassment whether he was goofing off or not.

    It doesn't even have to be with a real person. All it takes is one woman to be made to feel uncomfortable, and I happen to know quite a few that were made uncomfortable or were outright offended by his dumb redneck ass.

    Get a fucking clue people. You wan't the sexual harrassment guidelines to be eased? Well you go ahead and allow that, but next time some perv at work directs some sexual shit at YOU, don't complain.

    I forgot to say this on my previous comment concerning the use of the F word.

    You did the right thing by removing that video. Keep up the good work and always let you conscious be your guide.

    MY RESPONSE:
    You to sit there and say all these cuss words in your comment and think what he did was wrong well did you think what you just said wasnt offensive? I could understand if he actually did this to a woman that it would be offensive. An old man that used to work with me hit on me many times and NOTHING was done about it. So for something like this to be a big deal ticks me off. Dont waste your time on one man who didnt do anything serious, get those pervs who actually touch REAL women in inappropriate way, get those who say nasty things to a REAL PERSON!!!
