Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid of GMB have been chastised for their ‘insensitive’ interview with a fire victim.

Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid of Good Morning Britain were reporting on a fire in New York City that claimed the lives of 19 people overnight, including a four-year-old child.

Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid, hosts of Good Morning Britain, have been chastised for an “inappropriate” interview with a fire victim in New York City.

On Sunday, January 9th, a fire broke out in an apartment building, killing 19 people, nine of whom were children.

A four-year-old was among the victims of the fire, which city fire commissioner Daniel Nigro described as “one of the worst in recent memory.”

Winter Thomas, who had escaped the fire with her mother and siblings on the ninth floor, was being interviewed by Richard and Susanna.

“I was sleeping when my younger sister entered the room,” she explained.

I didn’t know what to do when she screamed for me to assist her.

“I looked out the window, and there were flames, black smoke, coming up my window as soon as I turned my head to the window.”

“It was very devastating,” Winter, 20, said of having to check on her family.

However, viewers were outraged when Richard and Susanna interrogated the 20-year-old about seeing people jump from windows to escape the devastating fire.

“It was like something out of a movie,” she said.

The children were leaping from the window.

They were jumping out the window from the ninth floor.

“In my entire life, I’ve never seen so many corpses.”

On the floor, I saw dead people and children.”

Winter was asked whether she thought the worst part of the experience was the fire or the smoke, as well as what she planned to do next.

“Am I the only person who thinks it’s completely inappropriate to be questioning this young girl after the New York fires? Poor thing is completely traumatised and she’s getting asked specifics!” one GMB fan tweeted.

“Jesus christ, this interview with this poor girl in New York actually sounds like [an]interrogation ffs!” exclaimed another.

“Can’t believe it, he asked her what she’s going to do now?” someone else added. “Jesus Christ, that was just f***ing awful to watch.”

“Winter in New York’s comments and questions by Richard Madeley are appalling.

He’s purposefully adding to her anguish by interrogating her and making obnoxious remarks.

Another person stated, “He should be ashamed of himself.”
