Journalist slammed for diva meltdown on TV

The women went at it on camera.

A video showing a Nine News reporter yelling at her colleague for daring to wear the same colour outfit as her has gone viral after it was leaked online.

Presenter Amber Sherlock and sports reporter Julie Snook were appearing on a chat segment together with another guest and when Amber caught sight of Julie’s top and let rip.

“I need Julie to put a jacket on,” she said angrily. “I asked her before we came on… I told you two hours ago.”

“I’m sorry, I’ve been flat out,” replied Julie, looking annoyed.

“I made this clear two-and-a-half-hours ago,” continued Amber.

“Amber, if it’s an issue, I can get on out of here,” said Julie.

“It is an issue,” Amber fired back. “Go and grab a jacket…I wasn’t saying it for no reason. The wardrobe girls will be furious downstairs.”

When Julie tried to point out her jacket was actually blue, Amber snapped, “It doesn’t look like it.”

The video then cuts out and goes black, but the audio is still running.

“Fine, jump on out if that’s what you’d like to do,” Amber can be heard saying. “Come on, wearing a jacket. I asked you two-and-a-half hours ago. It’s not the hardest request.”

When the video comes back on, Julie is wearing a black jacket and the women go live as if nothing has happened.

While Amber has since brushed off the incident and admitted she “overreacted” and said she and Julie have made up, viewers were not so forgiving.

Many have slammed the journo and even called for her resign and hand over her position to Julie.

“This is the most un-Australian thing I’ve ever seen. Get a grip Amber,” wrote one viewer.

“I know how she feels. I went barefoot at the beach once and everyone else did the same. So embarrassing,” one person wrote sarcastically.

However, others were on her side saying she handled it well.
