Congratulations Internet, you made this happen.

A Fox 2 news anchor in St. Louis named April Simpson became a viral sensation last week thanks to a video which showed her glaring her co-host Tim Ezell after he called her the “Hamburglar” on air.

Comedian Kevin Hart also posted the original clip to Facebook getting it lots of attention online.

The network then decided to play a little prank on April Monday morning, by having the actual Hamburglar appear on set to rub some fry salt in her wounds.

The crew also proceeds to throw hamburgers at her while she sits at her desk in disgust.

“Here’s my thing,” she says. “There are several people who are no longer my friends.”

She points to everyone in the room who participated in the stunt and says that she doesn’t even want to do the news anymore.

But it looks like she got over it, according to Twitter.

Former 9am news host Tim Ezell from Fox 2 in St. Louis had an interesting way of introducing his co-host April Simpson one morning, and the old clip has now gone viral thanks to comedian Kevin Hart.

“Welcome back to FOX 2 news in the AM. Time to get you all caught up with the headlines. For that, the Hamburglar,” said Ezell.

The coment seems to catch her a bit off guard at first.

“It is your birthday. I’ll let it pass.” she says afterwards. “No I won’t I’ll get ya later.”

Hart shared the video on his Facebook page Tuesday, where it now has over 2 million views.

Ezell left the station last July to become a full-time minister.

The commenters on Hart’s post are also having some fun with the whole thing as demonstrated by the photo below.
