Reporter Goes for Jugular of Bourbon St. 'Zombie' (VIDEO)


With the Super Bowl only a day away, media saturation is at an all-time high in New Orleans. Local TV stations from other places are even sending their local TV reporters to tell the world about the wonders of New Orleans. Earlier this week, the rampant reporting ran into Bourbon Street's typical saturation level. Orlando's WKMG-6 TV sent reporter Jessica Sanchez onto Rue Bourbon to get some beads and a feel for the scene. Click through to watch what happened:

 

Unthinkably, Sanchez was greeted by a drunk woman during this mission. As a viral video making the rounds shows, she didn't appreciate it.

 

As Sanchez is describing the early-morning scene of "zombies roaming the streets" in New Orleans, a 49ers fan attempts to get on camera behind the reportr. Sanchez decides to acknowledge the woman, and turns to interview her.

 

“We were just talking about, here on Bourbon Street, the STD rate going on,” she says."How long have you had an STD?"

 

The woman apparently sobered up in that second, as her face changes from happy to horrified and she says, "I don't have an STD. That is so disrespectful!"

 

Sanchez then apologized for the mix-up.
