TV Host Storms Off Set Over Michael Sam Kiss (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A Dallas TV host walked off the set of her show Tuesday after an argument erupted over her disapproval of Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on television.

A discussion on KTXD TV's "The Broadcast" about ESPN's decision to broadcast Michael Sam's emotional kiss escalated into a full-blown fight between co-hosts and ended with host Amy Kushnir storming off the set, declaring, "I'm done."

Kushnir said that she was against the network airing the kiss, and argued that it strayed from ESPN's tradition of promoting "all-American sports."

"When parents do not have a choice as to whether or not they want their children to see this, it's wrong," she said. "It's being pushed in faces.... I don't want to see that. I don't want to see cake in your face, kissing each other."

Kushnir's co-host seemed shocked by her comments and fired back that the kiss was a major moment in the nation's history and "a moment of celebration."

"I don't call it a moment of celebration," Kushnir responded, before storming off moments later.
