Weatherman appears to fart on live TV and people are shocked


A weatherman in Louisville, Kentucky has been accused of farting live on air after a video of the incident went viral.

While reporting on a cold front coming in from the Midwest, WDRB meteorologist Marc Weinberg paused his broadcast and appeared to create a warm front by farting, before continuing with the weather.

Viewers of the unfortunate incident, and an entirely different kind of wind to feature in a weather report, posted the clip to social media, highlighting the incident even further though blaming the wrong weatherman.

Other Louisville-based media personnel also jumped on the bandwagon, sharing the embarrassing incident of their broadcasting colleague.

Matt Jones, host of sports radio KSR, also posted the clip on Twitter, writing: “More weathermen excitement! Did this Louisville weatherman fart on air??”

Weinberg won’t be living that down any time soon.
