VIDEO: Kat Von D Walks Off Good Day LA Set; Twitter Battle Ensues
Kat Von D, Jillian Reynolds
Kat Von D walked off the Good Day LA set after she felt the hosts showed a lack of compassion and respect following her split with Jesse James.
The tattoo artist was scheduled to appear on Wednesday's morning program to promote the newest season of her TLC show, but walked off when host Jeff Michael mentioned her breakup during the introduction.
"Star of LA Ink Kat Von D is back... she just broke up with fiancé Jesse James, but not before getting a tattoo of his childhood picture," Michael said before the Fox show ran the clip. When they came back from the promo, Von D was gone and Michael and co-host Jillian Reynolds announced she had left the building. (See the clip below.)
Jesse James and Kat Von D End Engagement
"Dear GoodDayLA, thanks for the waste of a perfectly good morning. Lack of compassion n respect for each other never fails to dissapoint [sic] me," Von D later tweeted.
Reynolds responded: "@thekatvond We showed the clip your publicist sent. It showed you and Jesse. Were we not supposed to mention you broke up?"
The public debated continued Von D's surrebuttal: "@askjillian I didn't walk out because you used the clip we sent you- I walked out because of your disrespectful intro you guys "snuck" in... ps. Publicly disrespecting people for the sake of better ratings isn't something a person of compassion does. Good day."
