Arkansas TV Reporter Gives Perfect Response To Viewer Who Can’t Stand His ‘Gayness’

As the old saying goes, “you can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.” What’s missing is this modern update: “Ignorant bigots will never be pleased about anything so you just have to do your best not to let their grating nonsense burrow too deep underneath your skin.”

An Arkansas TV reporter recently put this lesson to the test with excellent form after an irate viewer wrote him an email about how his “gayness” was a problem.

Mitchell McCoy, a reporter for KARK-TV, shared the ugly correspondence via Twitter:

“I watched KARK before you joined and it was a reputable broad cast [sic] until now,” the viewer, who signed the email “kark Channel 4 Fan,” begins. “I have been holding back for months but I can’t stand your gayness.”

“You are on television every night and our children should not be watching people like you. You are a disgrace to Arkansas and I will be asking your boss to take you off.” That’s just rude — you don’t see McCoy coming around to your boss and telling her you’re unfit to be making Dairy Queen chicken strips.

The “fan” concludes, “Do not be offended but society is not ready for gay men reading news.”

McCoy had the perfect response, keeping things light, bright and gay:

“I get many emails but this tops it. I’ve dreamt of being a reporter since I was 9 and I won’t stop on your behalf.”

He added:

Just for reference, here’s a reel of McCoy being a damn good TV reporter:
