Over 8,000 signatures have signed an online petition asking for the removal of a rude television reporter. According to the petition, which was posted on the “change.org” website, KIM KING, a reporter from WLOS 13 Asheville NC, attended a press conference in Tennessee regarding the horrific Gatlinburg area wildfire. During the conference, she was extremely rude to the Mayor of Gatlinburg, interrupting him constantly and proceeding to blame the city of Gatlinburg for the lack of notification on the wildfire that NO ONE COULD PREDICT OR STOP.
The petition request that station management take this woman off the air. The petitoners go on to say “The state of Tennessee, and states all over the nation are coming together to uplift those affected by the fires, including the brave and heroic first responders who risked their lives during this devastating time”.
