By now, most people have read the story of the Anchorage, Alaska reporter Charlo Greene. For those of you who haven't heard the story yet, you might want to log on to Instagram or Facebook every once in a great while. In case you've missed the hype, Greene managed to really get people talking by quitting her job on live television after declaring her love and support for the cannabis plant. She also revealed that she is the head of the Alaska Cannabis Club, a marijuana business located in Alaska. But last Sunday, Greene finally announced her role in the club and resigned from her reporting job on live TV in a way that some people think may have been a little over the edge.
While in the middle of the evening news, Greene stated, "Now everything you've heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana." Greene's next statement shocked everyone. "And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but fuck it, I quit." The ballsy reporter then walked off the camera, which then is aimed at the main anchor, looking like someone had just spit in her morning coffee. After a brief but stunned silence, the anchor apologized for the clip and moved on with the news.
Now, if you've seen the movie Waiting, you'll understand the hilarity of what happened on the news stations Twitter/Facebook accounts. The station director, Bert Rudman, claimed that Greene had been "terminated for the use of inappropriate language". Unfortunately for Rudman, we all have seen the YouTube clip. She straight up quit. And much like the scene in Waiting, where Justin Long resigns from his job, the boss has to backpedal and try to make himself look like the good guy. "You didn't quit... You walked in and I fired you! You're fired! Get out of my sight!" We can only imagine that Greene's resignation was handled the same way.
When asked about the way she went out, Greene wasn't sorry for her choice of salty words but she did apologize to those who she may have offended. "I wanted to draw attention to the issue and the issue is medical marijuana. Ballot Measure 2 is a way to make medical marijuana real. Most patients didn't know the state didn't set up the framework to get patients their medicine."
While some people may think that the way Greene went about leaving was wrong, the internet shows very strong support of what she did. The world is a very unkind place and people are incredibly desensitized. Watching the news and hearing someone drop the F bomb will most certainly draw some attention. And Greene is absolutely getting that. The video has been liked, shared, and spread far across the vast internet universe and Greene is now said to be one of the marijuana heroes. She took a stand for something that she believed in and quit her job on live TV. Even if you don't support her language, you have to support the courage it takes to do something so incredibly brave. Charlo Greene, you are the real MVP.
