Mika Brzezinski Epic 'Furry' Run Off Made Great TV -

furry mika brzezinski run off

Mika Brzezinski runs off covering “Furry” story. Discovering what a Furry convention is all about, prompted Brzezinski to run off the set of her program. On Monday, the hosts of Morning Joe, were doing a segment on a chlorine gas incident that occurred at the 2014 Furry Convention in Chicago, Illinois.

Brzezinski read the prompter and explained that thousands of people gathered at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, were evacuated at around 1 a.m. after guests reported a chlorine odor on the 9th floor.

Brzezinski went on to share that 19 people were hospitalized and police believe that the incident was intentional. As she was talking about the incident, Mika Brzezinski and co-host Joe Scarborough started paying attention to a video of the attendees of the Furry convention and noticed that they were all dressed in animal costume, which prompted them to ask, what are furries? The answer:

Furries are people interested in fictional anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics. Examples of anthropomorphic attributes include exhibiting human intelligence and facial expressions, the ability to speak, walk on two legs, and wear clothes.

Upon understanding who attends a Furry event, Mika Brzezinski started laughing to the point that she decided to run off the stage and hide in the back of the studio for several minutes.

While Scarborough and Brzezinski were giggling, Willie Geist stepped in, and tried to finish the segment. Few voices took to social media to say that Mika Brzezinski should not be laughing at people hit by deadly gases even if they are dressed in strange outfits.

But many were less sympathetic. One person stated that people who attend Furry events deserve to be gassed. Watch Mika Brzezinski try to run off the set due to the meaning of the word furry below.

Here is a statement from the organizers of Midwest FurFest after the incident:

“At 1:10 AM the entire hotel was evacuated, first across Bryn Mawr Ave. in front of the Hyatt as per Rosemont Fire Department’s standard procedures, then when it became apparent that the wait would take longer, the Stephens Convention Center was opened to provide warmth and shelter to our guests.”

It continued:

“As we wake up today we want to continue to provide the best possible convention that we can, despite the trying circumstances. We ask you to continue to be patient, and remember that the volunteers who make Midwest FurFest happen intend to give 110% to make sure that the fun, friendship, and good times of Midwest FurFest 2014 overshadow last night’s unfortunate incident.”
