Anchor Called Hamburglar in Video Makes Awkward TV After Real One Shows Up

By Kevin Eck 

Last week, video of KTVI anchor April Simpson getting called the Hamburglar by former co-anchor Tim Ezell two years ago on the station’s morning show went viral.

TVSpy tried to ignore the old news, first posted by comedian Kevin Hart. Today we feel compelled to give in to our baser instincts and embrace the awkward.

The St. Louis FOX affiliate let a person dressed as the Hamburlglar come on set along with a plate of hamburgers.

Simpson, who is a vegetarian, began listing people who were no longer her friends, stopping only with someone she named “Jack O Lantern.” After laughing, she generally cast a chill upon the whole joke, which made it even funnier in that awkward team lunch sort of way.
