Mike Johnson Clarifies He Was NOT Asking Out Keke Palmer On TV! Um, What?? – Perez Hilton

This week we ascertained one of the most awkward daytime TV times in a long time — but did we really hear what we thought we realise ??

For those who missed it, Mike Johnson was on the Strahan, Sara and Keke hour of GMA where

The reality TV personality said 😛 TAGEND

” I “re making a mistake”. I don’t like dating in public … But if I were to ask you if we could go on a year …”

The audience appeared. Keke had to hide her sickened face with her question placard. Michael Strahan and Sara Haines turned back like humiliated parents.

Keke eventually spat out she was ” at work” dammit, and just like that it appeared Mike had been rejected on live TV. No rise for you!

But according to the Bachelorette veterinarian, he wasn’t* actually* questioning out Keke. Um, what? It was live TV, we all understand it…

Speaking on the Barstool Sports podcast Chicks In The Office , Mike attempted to set the record straight about his courtship misfire. He interpreted 😛 TAGEND

” What had happened was[ Palmer] was asking me a matter of Demi. I’ve messed up in the past by speaking publicly about my own personal things. So, I committed not to do that again .”

Oh man if that was his goal did he ever mess up! He continued 😛 TAGEND

” She was asking me questions. She had asked me a second question, and I genuinely didn’t want to speak on it. So, I did what most people would do in the situation that are good at doing interviews: They snap it .”

Is < em> that what he thought he was doing? Like, he was trying to ask her how she’d feel if someone questioned her out in public?

Because if so he did NOT consider the context at all. To everyone watching it inspected indistinguishable from a subject trying to work casually requesting the status of women out into a convo. Super awkward.
