Sometimes 'Merica makes us shake our heads...

With Kelly Ripa on vacation last week, "Live With Kelly and Michael" featured guest co-hosts and Fridays guest host was Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton.


During the shows opening monologue, while Michael told a story about Kate Upton in a robe, ABC cutaway to breaking news.

The U.S. had just launched airstrikes in Iraq against Islamic militant group, ISIS.

Viewers were angry.

Complaints included:

"US air strikes" just interrupted my Kelly & Michael's show w/ Kate Upton

"WHAT THE F--K YOU DONT INTERUPT KATE UPTON FOR A NEWS SPECIAL REPORT

"They just took Kate Upton off my tv to tell me what Obama is doing.. @ThanksObamaUSA"

The interruption lasted less than three minutes.
