Dallas TV host storms off set over Michael Sam kiss

A Dallas-area television host left the set Tuesday morning after a very heated discussion over Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on television.

Amy Kushnir is one of the hosts of KTXD TV's "The Broadcast."

On Tuesday, the topic turned to ESPN's decision to broadcast Michael Sam's emotional kiss. 

"When parents do not have a choice about whether or not they want their children to see this, it is wrong...I don't call it a moment of celebration...It's being pushed in faces. I don't want to see that. I don't want to see cake in your face, kissing each other," said Kushnir.

Kushnir walked off the set, sayijng, "I'm done!"

Early this year, Michael Sam made news by announcing he is gay. On Saturday, he made history as the first openly gay player to be drafted by a National Football League team. Seconds later, he made waves kissing his boyfriend in celebration as cameras looked on.
