People Are Actually Mad That Al Roker Went In On Ryan Lochte?
Years ago, after having gastric bypass surgery, Al Roker accidentally sharted in the White House. And while lesser men like myself would’ve made a move for a Secret Service agent’s gun and hoped for death, Al ducked into the men’s room and went commando like a motherfucking boss. He’s a national hero, and when he went in on Ryan Lochte, it only cemented that reputation. Except apparently people at NBC think he went too far? How the shit? Page Six reports:
But insiders told us “Today” executives and on-air talent — already struggling to cover the story while managing relationships with the US Olympic Committee and individual athletes — tried to smooth things over.
“There were several producers and talent who were left trying to explain Al’s over-the-top behavior,” said a source. “Several insiders found themselves wanting to distance themselves from his response.”
“It was a great thing to watch online, but a lot of NBC staff thought that he took it way too far for something that, while it was certainly a legitimate issue and certainly bad behavior by Lochte, outrage to that level just wasn’t justified.”
So a brother can’t stir a mojito now?! Jesus Christ. Brian Williams lied about seeing combat in Iraq and still has a job, but God forbid Al Roker calls the dumbest white boy in professional sports a liar after he admitted to lying. I guess he’ll just shuck and jive over here and tell you the weather. Storm coming tonight, massa, yes’m.
