KSFY's Nancy Naeve scolded viewers for complaining that the station's tornado warnings interrupted Sunday's "Once Upon A Time" season finale.

"No show is as important as someone's life," Naeve, a news anchor for the ABC affiliate in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, said in a finger-pointing rant. She punctuated her unscripted moment with "It really gets me mad."

Naeve was addressing those who griped via phone and social media over co-anchor Shawn Cable's live coverage when tornadoes struck in the viewing area Sunday night.

Cable later posted a YouTube video of Naeve's segment that has begun to create its own storm online. Cable defended his "amazing co-anchor" Naeve in the description and added, "I don't take the decision to break in lightly, but when there's a confirmed tornado on the ground that is headed toward people's homes, I break in. I don't care what's on."

Meanwhile, Naeve fielded congratulations on Twitter for giving 'em heck.
