Late night host spoofs newscast interruption

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Nearly a week after a man from Charlotte interrupted a live newscast, stealing the microphone from a reporter and shouting a racial slur, the incident has caught the attention of late night hosts.

A live shot to report on the crackdown on crime by the Horry County Solicitor's Office last Wednesday night began as usual, but when 20-year-old Justin Moore shoved WMBF News Reporter Ashley Taylor away from the camera and took control of her microphone, the news became the news.

The incident has now captivated a national audience, and was spoofed during an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night, where he shows Lakers' star Metta World Peace interrupting Taylor's live shot with the "unintentional elbow."

What do you think of the spoof?
