Ella Dorsey, a meteorologist at CBS46, said she received death threats for interrupting the Masters golf tournament earlier today while Tiger Woods was chasing history. She was focused on tornado watches around Georgia, including metro Atlanta.
At 1:33 p.m. on Twitter, Dorsey posted: “To everyone sending me death threats right now: you wouldn’t be saying a damn thing if a tornado was ravaging your home this afternoon. Lives are more important than 5 minutes of golf. I will continue to repeat that if and when we cut into programming to keep people safe.”
The broadcaster split the screen and people were not able to hear the CBS commentary for a few minutes.
Woods would win the Masters before the storms rolled into Augusta.
