MSNBC Reporter Harassed During Live Hurricane Ida Coverage

Shaq Brewster was doing a live report from Gulfport, Mississippi, on Monday during the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.

While he was on the air, a man jumped out of his white pickup truck and started yelling, "Report it accurately."

Brewster said, "I think we even have a random person going around. We deal with some people every once in a while."

The man started to approach Brewster, and the network cut away. Anchor Craig Melvin said, "Hey, hey, hey. We're going to check in with Shaq Brewster just to make sure all is well. There's a lot of crazy out there, a lot of crazy."

Minutes later, Melvin told his audience, "One of our correspondents was disrupted by some wacky guy during his live shot there in Mississippi. Pleased to report that Shaquille Brewster is doing just fine. Shaq, he's okay."

The producer and photographer were able to keep the man away from Brewster, and he left.

Brewster tweeted, "Appreciate the concern guys. The team and I are all good!"
