An unfortunate attempt at banter between a news presenter and the weatherman went sour this week. 

A video has been released showing a female news presenter reporting on a story about pet adoption – petting a gorgeous dog in studio alongside a representative from the pet adoption agency. 

As she crosses to the weatherman Charlie Shortino however, things went downhill quickly. 

“Okay Charlie, I’m going to sit here and just hang out with my new best friend,” she says.

But apparently that opened the floor for Shortino to make an ill-advised joke about beastiality… 

“Really? I think you … You two should get a, uh, hotel room or something. That’s a lot of action going on over there,” he said.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, he then followed his first comment with the following.

“Probably the most action you’ve had in months, huh?”

Cue complete silence.

Thankfully he had the actual weather report to fall back on or that deafening silence would have gone on a lot longer. 

Cringe!
