Man Heading to Supermarket Stops to Yell at Reporter Over Coronavirus Coverage

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

It’s no surprise people around the country are stressed.

But what did surprise morning reporter Miya Shay was the man going to the supermarket at 6 a.m. who blamed her for the coronavirus spread. He walked up to her during her live hit in front of a local supermarket, H.E.B, and started cursing her out. Shay had to dump out of the shot because he wouldn’t stop yelling.

“I’m just going to assume this guy dropped a bunch of F bombs on me this morning because his wife sent him for toilet paper too early,” she said.
