Guy Rips Into KRON’s Stanley Roberts: ‘Why don’t they have you filming what’s going on in Oakland?’

KRON’s Stanley Roberts is used to shaming people on-camera for his popular “People Behaving Badly” series, but the tables were turned recently when Roberts began filming a loquacious young man who had been pulled over for driving alone in the carpool lane (video above).

“Why don’t they have you down there filming what’s going on in Oakland?” the guy asked Roberts, dismissing him with a hand wave. “They got your fat, lazy, non-relevant, non-factor ass out here filming highway patrol shit. That tells you how much you’re worth at your job.” Ouch.

And, with an Elmo t-shirt and a few finger wags, the video has now officially gone viral.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the new Antoine Dodson,” Gawker declared.

For his part, Roberts has been riding the video’s sudden popularity online. When buzz blogs started picking it up this week, he posted links on his Twitter and Facebook accounts.

“WOW I made it on http://FailBlog.org,” Roberts tweeted on Wednesday. “How cool is that!”
