TV Reporter April Simpson Was Called 'The Hamburglar' On Air, Then Stole The Show

This TV reporter earned her stripes.

Watch April Simpson of Fox 2 in St. Louis react after colleague Tim Ezell called her "The Hamburglar" on air. The Hamburglar, of course, is a McDonald's character who wears black and white stripes.

Fox 2 posted the exchange Tuesday, and it got a huge bump from comedian Kevin Hart.

Good sport Simpson gave Hart a shoutout, saying the clip's been viewed over a million times.

The New York Daily News noted that Ezell left the station in July, so it's unclear when the moment happened -- but still funny at any time.
