A local news reporter managed set the studio abuzz after she made a risque comment, all while presenting the weather forecast on Friday morning.
Philadelphia anchor for ABC6 News, Karen Rogers made an early morning remark about her colleague, weather girl, Jessica Boyington, suggesting that Jessica likes to ‘double fist’.
‘….and to another woman who liked to be double-fisted but in a different way, Jess,’ Rogers stated as she completed her forecast and handed over to her co-anchor during the St. Patrick’s Day broadcast, all while holding two remotes controls in her hands.
‘She means beer, she means beer,’ Boyington flatly responded, suppressing laughter, as she attempted to riff off the drinking-related holiday remark.

‘She means beer!’ she repeated, this time shouting across the studio. ‘Don’t put me on YouTube! My God!’ she demanded.
Boyington quickly attempted to make light of the gaffe and explained that it was a reference to holding two glasses of beer in her hands.
She then jokingly requested that the footage not be uploaded to YouTube.
The request, however, was widely ignored the video going viral within minutes of it being uploaded to Twitter.
The short clip racked up more than 750,000 views – likely far more viewers that would have been watching the 5am broadcast.
In the U.S. the term, ‘double fisting’ is a crude slang term that refers to the practice of holding two alcoholic beverages at once and drinking them simultaneously.
The term, as in this case, can also refer to an uncomfortable-sounding sexual act which is what created the studio uproar during Friday morning’s live broadcast.
