Former reporter for KTVA Charlo Greene quit her job in a dramatic fashion — announcing “fuck it, I quit,” on air. Greene was reporting on the Alaska Cannabis Club when she revealed that she was, in fact, the owner of the club.
Now, the reporter-turned-advocate has started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for her marijuana reform advocacy. Was her sensational resignation merely a bid to drum up attention for her cause?
In her Indiegogo video embedded above, Greene says, “There comes a time in each and every one of our lives when we must choose to continue to spectate or stand up for what’s right.” The video then cuts right to a clip of her quitting on air.
Well, it worked. The video of her quitting has gone viral, amassing nearly 2.5 million views in less than a day of being on YouTube.
Her Indiegogo campaign has reached 66 percent ($3,292) of its total goal ($5,000) in less than a day of being launched, despite the cheap look of the video. In the campaign description, Greene says the money will be used for “travel costs and informational materials.”
She also writes that she is “the only person in Alaska that has had the balls to face the injustice of Alaska’s medical marijuana catch-22 and do something about it.”
