To those classless individuals who throw things at people on floats, I have a message for you.  I've had to wait a while to address this as I've been so angry.

Emily J, my new morning show co-host on the CJ and Emily J Morning Show, who's new to our area, rode on a float for the first time in her life this past Lafayette Mardi Gras.  She and almost 20 others were on the Townsquare Media Lafayette float in the last parade of the day on Fat Tuesday.

The parade had barely started to roll, when some classless person in the crowd, threw a  bead at her, hitting her very hard on the side of the face.  As you know, it was a cold day, so the cold made it hurt even more.  She still had a mark on her face the next day.  She didn't say much about it, because she's a trouper.  But it was obvious that she was hurting the entire ride.

To the idiots who throw things at people on floats, I have a message for you.
