TV host Justin Sylvester had to keep Jenna Bush Hager away from him on the ‘Today’ show after the star kept getting too close.
TV Host Justin Sylvester Pushes Co-Host Jenna Bush Hager Away As She Can’t Keep Her Hands Off Him
This all played out during the course of a cooking segment when Justin was receiving some tips on how to make chicken. In the clip here, we can see that the chef is talking to Justin. As he does so, Jenna can be seen touching Justin’s back as she then wraps her arms around his shoulders.
Justin then attempted to get out of the range of motion but Jenna stood her ground. That is when Justin appeared to use his arm to reinforce the distance and push her away. But as he did so, Jenna only moved closer.
This immediately generated a lot of talking points for the following reasons. First of all, it indicated that Justin was not too happy to see his personal space being invaded.
And given that this was being done on a TV screen, it was very difficult to do anything other than what he was doing to express his dissatisfaction, especially since there was a cooking segment going on.
Secondly, there was also an argument that there would have been more uproar had their roles been reversed, that being, if a man had behaved this way to a woman. And this was reflected in the comments that followed on social media.
A significant proportion of people bashed Jenna, as they felt her behaviour was out of order and should have been condemned.
One person wrote: “Justin certainly raised his arm to place a barrier between him and Jenna, she kept ignoring it and he rightfully pushed her away.”
While another person stated: “Seems like she don’t know how to keep her hands to herself let’s keep it professional ppl.” It is safe to say that this was not Jenna’s finest moment. So there you have it folks.
