People are REALLY Mad that Fox Preempted X Factor for Baseball

NLCS Game 3, Giants @ Cardinals, had a long rain delay over the past few hours. When it finally came back, Fox stopped showing X Factor, the talent show whose hosts include Simon Cowell and Khloe Kardashian.

X Factor fans were PISSED and they took to Twitter to voice their discontent:


X-Factor

I thought there were ESPN channels for a reason… thanks FOX for canceling XFactor to show baseball? #annoyedSarah Blair

While these people are easy to mock, imagine being in their shoes. If, for whatever reason, X Factor preempted a Packers game, I’d complain on Twitter until someone was in jail.
