WTTG reporter Jacqueline Matter took no time shutting down a rude child who thought he was being funny.

Matter was reporting on a story in College Park, Md., Wednesday night when the child walked behind her and let out a scream.

The reporter for the Washington, D.C. Fox owned station wasn’t live and didn’t miss a beat after the kid, who obviously hoped she was live, offered up his best display of pre-teen humor. She turned to him calmly and told him, “We’re not live.” The child walked away.
