And in Alabama this
Caitlyn Jenner is back in the spotlight after she received the Arthur Ashe courage award at the ESPYs Wednesday night, but for one man, it was the last straw.
Jenner, who came out as a transgender woman in April, has received plenty of backlash ever since ESPN announced that she would receive the award. Alabama resident Bobby Knight has had enough of her, and he wants to “remove this portion of garbage [from his] life.”
Instead of, saying, hiding Jenner’s name from Google search results or avoiding news articles about her, Knight took more drastic action. Since she appeared on his TV, he took his TV outside and shot it.
Judging from the age of the TV (90s or early 00s) I'm thinking he already had a brand spanking new flat screen TV in his living room before he did this. I'm also guessing he couldn't find anyone to unload his old TV on so he came up with this as a way of disposing of the ol' cathode ray tube as well as looking like a total redneck in the process for his buddies.
