"You're A Fat, Nasty Bitch And A Shit Mom" St Louis Newscaster And Radio Host MELTS DOWN During A Dastardly Leaked Commercial Break

While hosting a radio show last week, Fox 2 news anchor Vic Faust unleashed an off-air tirade of foul language, sexist remarks and personal insults directed at a female colleague.

Faust used profanity at least 40 times in a roughly four-minute rant that berated co-host Crystal Cooper for, among other things, her weight and her parenting skills.

“Well, it is,” Faust said, when told the audio clip was profane. He said there was “background” to the story but declined to comment further.

The spark for Faust’s harangue seems to have occurred in the closing minutes of Tuesday’s radio show, which can be viewed on YouTube as a podcast. The station now has taken down its Facebook posting of the show.

The video shows Faust and Cooper engaging in an uncomfortable exchange after Faust had become irked by Cooper’s criticism of his computer skills, something that had come up on a previous show.

The confrontation quickly escalated off-air. Faust begins using foul language and tells Cooper several times to “shut the (expletive) up” and “shut your (expletive) mouth.”

He calls her “fat,” “stupid” and “nasty,” and repeatedly refers to her by using a curse word most commonly directed at women. Then at one point, Faust says “you’re nothing” and “you’re trash.”

When talking of her broadcasting skills, Faust says, “You’re a (expletive) mom, you don’t even know the topics we’re talking about. You’re just stupid.”

WHHHHEWWWWWW. This fella is in some shit right now. From what I can see right now, he lost his radio show on the Viper. That was bound to happen. Listen, you can't go around calling your coworkers fat trash. Can't do it. No matter how much you want to, you cant do it. Well, at least at most places of employment. 

Vic here went over the line. That's easy to see. He was embarrassed and feeling down about his computer skills after the entire Viper squad went at his neck. I think it's important to remember that emails and computer stuff aren't easy for everyone. Signing in to those accounts and remembering your password is difficult. No one wants to be called computer illiterate on air. I know I don't. Buuttt I also don't wanna be called a fat piece of trash. Ugh. This is tough. 

I'm sure that tirade caught her completely off guard. You don't expect to be dealing with fat shaming, parent shaming, and intelligence shaming simply because you observed- along with other folks- that the main host stinks at computers. She didn't even fight back. She didn't raise her voice. She didn't make a scene. There wasn't one single "I'm not actually fat." "What do you mean, I'm not fat. Im thin." "I'm a good parent, tbh." She just sat there and took this verbal beatdown as professionally as she could while occasionally remembering that Vic is bad at computers and that she's in fact coming back which is probably not the same situation as Vic finds himself in.
