L.A. Ink star Kat Von D walked away from an interview with local Los Angeles morning show Good Day L.A. Wednesday after producers ran a clip from her show featuring her ex-fiance Jesse James.

Von D and James broke up this past weekend and apparantly, even seeing him on screen was too much for the tattoo artist.

The clip that sent Von D running was from the new season of her TLC series. In it, Von D surprises James with her newest tattoo -- an image of his teenage face. [Watch the clip below.]

Producers had been told ahead of time that Von D didn't want to discuss James' ex-wife Sandra Bullock, but they were not warned that Von D would flee if they ran a scene with him in it, notes the Los Angeles Times.

Good Day L.A.'s Jillian Barberie later said on air that Von D had told her off camera that she did not want to discuss her breakup at all.

Von D tweeted later in the morning, "Dear GoodDayLA, thanks for the waste of a perfectly good morning. Lack of compassion n respect for eachother never fails to dissapoint me."

The new season of L.A. Ink airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
