In a completely unacceptable turn of events, news anchor Greg Kelly hit on a reporter during a segment of Good Day New York. On live TV.

Anna Gilligan was on the scene, reporting for a segment on a theme park in New Jersey. Her segment required her to take off her cover up, don only a bikini and experience the Tarzan rope swing for herself. She emerges on the other side of the ride and takes the microphone back from an intern. That exhausted us just writing about it, but Anna handled it like a champ.

Greg on the other hand...

Despite Gilligan's attempts at keeping things professional and on-point, Kelly makes no effort to hide his approval of her bathing suit. He makes comments like "nice bathing suit" and "I just want to talk to her a little while longer." Then, as the camera pans away from Gilligan, Kelly is visibly upset and makes it known, yelling "Wait a second!"

Thankfully, his co-anchor (who is not just a woman but a respectable and professional human being) reprimands him and shows obvious disgust at the man sitting next to her.

At the beginning of the video, Gilligan mentions her apprehension about taking her clothes off, and for good reason.

If our live segment included reporting with Greg Kelly, we'd be apprehensive as well, at the very least.
