Weatherman Fired After First 80 Degree Day Sparks On-Air “Pussy Season” Comment

NEW YORK CITY– CBS2 News meteorologist John Elliot has always been enthusiastic about the weather, but his enthusiasm landed him in hot water on Monday after he referred to the 80 degree temperature as being “the official start of Pussy Season.”

Elliot, who joined the CBS2 News team back in 2007, was referring to the fact that women wear more revealing clothing in the summer months, a fact that is pleasing to the forty-eight-year-old weatherman. But not everyone is as enthusiastic as Elliot. Nicoletta Bergman is the president of the National Organization of Women (NOW). “Mr. Elliot’s comments perpetuate the false and harmful belief that women are sex objects,” said the overweight bull dike. Bergman created a Change.org petition calling for Elliot’s dismissal. The online petition received twenty-five-thousand signatures, prompting CBS2 News president Justin Nadal to fire Elliot. In a written statement, Nadal wrote:

For eight years, John Elliot has been a welcome and loved addition to the CBS2 News team. However, neither CBS2 News or its affiliates wish to offend our viewers, and it is with deep regret that we must part ways with Mr. Elliot.

Elliot is no stranger to controversy. In 2006, he was fired from KCBS-TV in Los Angeles. Doing a brief daily segment before the weather report in which he announced stars who were celebrating birthdays, he had mentioned that Jennifer Anniston was celebrating her thirty-seventh birthday. He then howled like a dog and formed the letter “V” with his fingers while moving his tongue between them, the universal gesture for cunnilingus.

Back here in New York, both fans and colleagues of Elliot are defending the horny anchor. “Our viewers can tell that we all have great chemistry,” said CBS2 News sports anchor Otis Livingston. “And here’s a little secret. The reason why the female anchors are so happy is because John is banging all of them. Hell, just the other day, co-anchor Mary Calvi gave him head during a commercial break.” Anchor Maurice DuBois agrees with Livingston, saying, “I do the nightly newscasts while John does the mornings, but I still know what goes on around here. And let me just tell you. John is a weatherman who needs to carry an umbrella, because the forecast calls for a torrential downpour of pootang wherever that man goes.” Co-anchor Dick Brennan recalled the time during Superstorm Sandy when Elliot worked thirty-six hours straight and still managed to squeeze in a threesome with colleagues Andrea Grymes and Diane Macedo. “The man is a legend. Plain and simple,” he said. “An outstanding meteorologist and a true cocksman.”

Field reporter Lou Young took to Twitter, writing, We in the media have an obligation to tell the truth, and that’s what J. Elliot did. Anyone walking down any NYC street on Monday knew that it was indeed the start of Pussy Season. #Reinstate John. Co-anchor Mary Calvi also posted on Twitter, writing, Saddened by the unfair departure of John Elliot. Not only is he my friend and colleague, but he’s hung like a God damn mule.

Elliot wasn’t the only anchor to get fired on Monday. Chris Wragge was also fired for taking part in the on-air exchange, telling Elliot, “Every season is Pussy Season.”
