Sky News Reporter Kay Burley Is Being Mocked on Twitter For Her Paris Dog Tweet.

Putting aside, if it’s at all possible, the horrendous outcome of Friday night’s terrorist attacks in Paris, it was clear from the beginning that some media outlets and specific reporters had a questionable approach to the events unfolding in France.

Listening to a BBC correspondent urging a survivor who had witnessed and survived a bloodbath in a restuarant to ‘count the bodies’ lying around him was one thing, but Sky News reporter Kay Burley, (who is never far from controversy), has found herself at the centre of a Twitter ridiculing after posting up a picture of a dog, (above), with the caption ‘Sadness in his eyes’ followed by the hashtag #parisattacks.

Kay Burley has been dispatched to Paris to cover the atrocity and report on any updates from the French capital. However, legions of users on Twitter are claiming she has misjudged the mood by sensationalising an already shocking event and have reacted to her tweet by posting their own pictures with the hashtag #sadnessinhiseyes, a few of which you can see below.

Was she right to post the picture of that dog, claiming that it felt the sadness of Paris?

Old Fella Gets All Anarchy-Like.

Kay Burley. You really don’t have to say anything else, just the mere mention of her name is enough. Here she is conducting one of her infamous probing interviews on the streets of Ealing following another night of civil unrest, with a local resident, when a passing old fella decides it’s time Britain heard his message, much to the chagrin of Burley because it’s her news and nobody else’s. Remember that, you ill informed ingrates.
