Matt Lauer Fired

NBC fired Today Show anchor Matt Lauer over sexual misconduct allegations. The 59-year-old newsman was the network's leading anchor with a reported annual salary of $25 million.

NBC acted swiftly after receiving allegations of inappropriate behavior in the workplace from an unidentified employee.

“On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer,” said NBC News president Andrew Lack in a memo Tuesday night.

Lack added that the complaint “represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment."

He said the complaint may not have been Lauer's first violation.

“While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over 20 years he’s been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”

Lauer’s co-host, Savannah Guthrie, announced Lauer's termination Wednesday morning.

“All we can say is we are heartbroken; I’m heartbroken," said an emotional Guthrie, who described Lauer as “a dear, dear friend,” and said she was “heartbroken for the brave colleague who came forward to tell her story.”

The Today Show anchors were advised of Lauer's termination shortly before going on the air.

"How do you reconcile your love for someone with the revelation that they have behaved badly?” said Guthrie.

a visibly shaken Al Roker said, “I’m still trying to process the news.”

    He gets no sympathy from me... he's been unfairly calling the shots and playing favorites all these years... it was past time for him to go anyway, and i think they welcomed the opportunity to finally be rid of him FOR CAUSE. 25 MILLION, smh.....

  • Evillene

    I think the $25 million salary was the deciding factor here. They can replace him for a fraction of the cost. Also, Lauer was the instigator of many personnel issues at NBC news. It was probably a relief for the brass to get rid of him.

  • WHO IS NEXT!!

    Jeez!! who is next! All the news people talked about the lewdness of the president but hell, they are just as bad.

    Damn Matt!!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    No, he's not mad, he's embarrassed. Yeah, he's rich... financially set for life. But for guys like him, it's not about the money. It's about their ego and image. His name and reputation are ruined forever now. Having a big bank account can't make up for the shame and embarrassment he's feeling.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The thing is, usually when there's one victim, there's more out there who haven't come out yet. It'll be interesting to see if other women come forward. NBC might have a few lawsuits on their hands pretty soon.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    In what circle is his name trash? He will not be kicked out any organization, he will be playing golf with his executives next weekend if the weather is nice. HE IS WHITE.

  • justlooking
  • Ghost

    Well from what I just read its a SAD story. A NBC Staffer has accused him of sexual assault. This allegedly took place at the RIO olympics. She had such compelling evidence that they decided to immediately let him go! I think other women will come forward..

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yuuup...

    So .. who are they gonna get his seat that has a squeaky clean image?

    His inner circle imitates his same behavior.

  • Phillybruh

    That 52% of white women feeling guilty over voting for Trump is behind that me too campaign. 3 more years of this ...oh boy

  • Quitedeliteful

    At the rate this is going there will be no men left in the workplace!!! One of my coworkers told me this has been going on since women entered the workplace. She said in the 70's she had a boss who would reach out and try to grab the women's breast or come out of the bathroom with his pants unzipped. She also said that men making crude jokes or remarks was standard.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    In media circles his name is trash. Just like Bill O'Reilly who got fired from his $25 million a year job at Fox News, now and no major media company wants to touch him.

  • InsecureNEVA

    I wonder was it Natalie Morales?

  • Phillybruh

    In his circle neither one of those things are ruined. The country club will still have him.

  • Vonn

    He probably already hid his money. Soon as big shots started getting exposed & fired, Matt said let my guilty ass hide my loot before they come for me.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's ironic, for sure. They're saying now "we should believe these women who come forward"... but did they believe the 12+ women last year who said Trump sexually assaulted or harassed them?

    Yeah he is a real prize.

    In September 2006, while pregnant with their third child, Roque filed for divorce, citing cruel and inhumane treatment from Lauer, as well as Lauer demonstrating extreme anger and hostility toward her, according to the documents. They reconciled, and son Thijs was born November 2006.

  • justlooking

    An NBC insider said Lauer’s alleged victim complained to HR on Monday: “This happened so quickly. She didn’t go to the media, she made a complaint to NBC’s human resources, and her evidence was so compelling that Matt was fired on Tuesday night. The victim says she has evidence that this has also happened to other women, but so far we don’t have evidence of that.”

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    They would rather have a Republican who's a former sexual assaulter of children, than a Democrat who's not.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    yep. basically they're choosing to vote for a child molester over any democrat... sick!

  • justlooking

    Al Roker was witness to that bull shit. PERIOD

    Matter of Fact, I'll go as far and say he was his flunkie, and made far less than Matt. Which is why he all all them extra damn jobs. DAMN SHAME

    i'm sure the prospect of "other women" helped them make a swift decision. i just hope they still come forward because sexual harassment in the workplace is also the EMPLOYER'S problem, so NBC needs to be held accountable as well. they can't just say, he's gone, now let's get back to work.

  • hottlanta

    It is not about the men. Women do it as well. It happened to me. I had a supervisor that wanted to become a little tooooo touchy with me. Trying to come to my desk and give me shoulder rubs and say she was adjusting my shirt as if I am a toddler. She would try to find any reason to touch me. I was telling my friend about that last week. I reported her to HR, she got mad and wanted to complain about everything I did so she could make a case to fire me. I moved to another department. But when I moved I discover that HR and my old manager were lovers. They started messing with my money and denied giving me a raise for 2 years and told me they didn't know when I was gonna get another raise. I left and been doing good since. Women needs to be put on blast as well. When I reported her at first they didn't believe me but I made a stink so they talked to her. Women are the shadiest.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Exactly it's about power and the abuse thereof.

    I believe that women wouldn't abuse their power through sexual means as much as men but in other petty ways that would be more obvious.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Off topic...has anyone seen the Lucas Joyner video? Thoughts

  • My Thoughts

    You should have reported that azz to the EEOC!

  • Simone

    He was a registered Democrat during those alleged sexual assaults. One of the accusers was under the legal age of consent in Alabama and her attorney Gloria Allred will not release the so called smoking gun (yearbook with Moore's signature) to an independent handwriting expert. It's a witch hunt. I'm probably wasting my time because you don't care about facts, just slander.

  • Renee26

    Damn...that's wild....I would think it would be unethical for anyone in HR to be fraternizing with the staff

  • Renee26

    Ain't no such thing as a former assaulter of children...they will always have that sick lust and probably get away with it

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL.

    Thanks partisan troll, but the problem is that many people have come forward stating that Moore was basically a predator who sought teenaged girls at various venues like malls and football games.

    BTW Moore's wife is 15 years younger than he is and they first met when Moore was in his early 30's and she was a teenager.

    Yes I think Matt had some kind of
    say in her leaving although it “seemed” liked she voluntarily left. You could tell he didn’t like Tamron then praised and opened arms for that shady Megan Kelly. He’s still rich and it’s not like he has to file unemployment or anything lol. He’s white so they give them passes he’ll probably get a job on cable reporting news specials.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Of course, I guess you want to believe the women are all lying. Just like the 12+ women who accused Donald Trump are all lying, I guess. That's another "witch hunt". How convenient.

  • hottlanta

    I did and they said it was basically she said/she said. I said she did it and she denied it and the job did place me in another department. I also showed them I had been on my job years before she came with no problem. I had a clean file. Their excuse for not giving me a raise was that I had reached my salary cap. I told them you got folks up here for 30 years they are getting something. So that is what they told the EEOC. I didn't trust their azzes after that. They are shady they look out for the companies as well.

  • TheOwley

    I saw the croc tears. It's a former co-host.

  • Jdove585

    Amen .....they should have let Bill Cosby ...BUY THE NETWORK

  • shelly

    Meghan Kelly will get his job.

  • Jdove585

    Has anyone Talked to Ann Curry ............

  • TheOwley

    Or Tamron. I hear victim is coming out soon so NBC pre-empted.

  • TheOwley

    Kathie Lee Gifford Is Ready to Forgive Matt Lauer. Somebody get me the barf bucket.

  • TheOwley

    If Tamron was not the victim, she should get it. Meghan will sink that show.

  • Judas & GOD

    KARMA!!

  • Trace da Ace

    well, well, well.....after seeing most of the comments on this.....all I have to say is...bye bye Matt....hope you saved up that 28mil that they say you are worth....wonder who it will be tomorrow??? Any takers???

  • Summer

    Hopefully Sean Hannity, that would be my wish. Actually any male on Faux Newz.

  • Karen Brady

    I was very surprised too.

  • Ozad

    But Trump the biggest abuser alive still president...so as long as he president nobody should lose their job or step down from senate or congress

  • Liah

    Keep your hands in your pocket!!!...#PERVERT

  • Blak

    Out with the men, is that what these people think will be the solution? Just have women up on tv, no diversity, let white women run everything? Hilary lost and boy oh boy is she really giving it to them to make sure she secures her seat next time around

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I know Ann is saying, Karma is REAL, the way she was dismissed, and it wasn't about ratings, but more about Matt not liking her!

  • ALLMINE?

    white women dont want a woman as president.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I must say, this one definitely came as a shock! Looks can be so deceiving, I figured he was arrogant the way they got rid of Ann Curry, but for NBC to fire him, not him take a leave or investigate allegations, he was caught real durrty!

    I know Bill Cosby enjoyed his oatmeal this morning, while learning about yet another mighty who has fallen.

    Will Matt Lauer's name be stripped down, every award rescinded, all future media deals a reversal of fortune? Bill Cosby and his fall became the blueprint for what we see today beginning with Harvey Weinstein!

    Crack laid the ground work for fast profits and devastation with Opiods, Heron, and Meth, but even worst because black people have always had to escape monumental chit and survive, we don't get passes, they do and still can't cope!

  • ALLMINE?

    meghan don't get no ratings..

  • Ryan

    You see what they voted into the White House. Wouldn't surprise me at all!

  • Ryan

    It would be funny if they weren't so damned legit dumb. But don't worry, high blood pressure and meth are picking them off like flies. Read a article the other day about how middle-aged and older conservative voters have shorter lifespans nowadays and I'm like WELP.

  • hottlanta

    Please her husband was caught on camera with a stripper in the hotel lobby and she forgave him. Stop the madness please.

  • hottlanta

    They gonna die with those short life spans along with those short dycks.

  • Simone

    I already said one of the accusers was under the legal age of consent in Alabama, meaning she wasn't 16. They are allegations, not proven. In this country, you are innocent until proven guilty.

  • Simone

    Yes, if Obama was accused, I would say he's innocent until proven guilty. Ever heard of the Duke Lacrosse scandal? Accusers do lie sometimes. Democrats and Republicans should be considered innocent until proven guilty.

  • Kayke

    I was just being specific because unlike Alabama, the majority of other state's consent age is 18. Just spelling out the fact that the alleged victim was at best, 15 yrs old.

  • Simone

    And a mall manager said those allegations of Judge Moore trying to pick up teen girls is not true. Moore has been in how many elections? Why now when he's running against a Democrat for the Alabama Senate seat in a red as can be state, is all of this coming up?! So close to the election? And the left-leaning Washington Post broke it. It's all suspicious and shady.

  • Ryan

    LOL

  • Hmmm~?

    When it comes to white folks; nothing surprises me. This whole Weistein scandal shows that most, if not all white men in showbiz are sexual predators. I’m sure that many more high profile men of Lauer’s calibre will be exposed in the coming months.

  • Hmmm~?

    Right? White women are the main reason Trump is even in office right now. They didn’t even trust one of their own to lead the country. A reflection of how they feel about themselves. Ain’t that sad?

  • nick c

    So many people spend all their time at work its the only place to meet someone. I told many guys not to shit where they eat for it to only fall on deaf ears.

  • nick c

    Truth he put heat all over oreilly after he was canned now looking back at that interview ??

  • the guest

    Beautifully said!

    Especially "Bill Cosby enjoyed his oatmeal this morning".

    I hope, let's just say hypothetically, somebody is dropping dime behind the scenes leading the exposure of all the harassers. Didn't Hef say they were ALL guilty of wilding but Bill Cosby was being singled out because he's black. Welp, somebody is talking from the grave and trust there are people who love Bill Cosby that are letting the cat out of the bag on the old white boy network.

    Matt Lauer. Charlie Rose.

    Talking about not going down quietly or alone.

  • the guest

    You are right. White women are two faced though. They smile up in Hilary's face and wave her signs and organize women's marches and then they march right into the voting booth and vote Trump. The more women this and women that they are the more Trump they are in behind closed doors.

    White women aren't trying to equalize all women They trying to equalize themselves with white men. That's why Hilary lost. Because white women played her. Some of them crying on TV because Hilary lost and they the same ones who voted Trump in secret.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    WOW, now that's something to think about, really!

    Don't be surprise if you see your words come forth in a big Hollywood movie!

    This does have such a strange feel to it, I thought of it as a reckoning or sorts, but all the reporters involved beforehand, investigations ongoing, people coming forth, but were interviewed months ago, and stories vetted!

    Then the accusers are kinda low-key for the usual media circus sensationalism. This does raise questions why the normal suppression of this type of news is no longer, just like Cosby???

    Yeah, it seems like this could have been orchestrated, Cosby has always maintained supporters, more than the media would like us to believe. I didn't know that Hef said that, but we know it's it true!

  • justlooking

    I doubt it. They would fired him a long time ago. He fought to get his salary, which was reported to be 30 million.

    It's not that much to NBC...They got it.!!!!!!

  • more

    He might be next all it takes is one woman to say something. I know men shook right now

  • Jdove585

    Yes I agree....She was awesome

  • YellowSauce

    this is actually an authority issue ... people in all walks of life are being abused and bullied by their bosses and co workers because they need to feed their families ... its disgusting ... this issue has to be addressed and corrected

  • Allihave2say

    None of these people are truly shocked about Matt's behavior, it's an act. Notice that Katie Couric remained silent during Guthrie's emotional expression of her dearly loved friend. Couric knows Matt is gutter.

  • Allihave2say

    They have money and power.

  • Allihave2say

    I'm waiting for special prosecutors to bring Charlie Sheen up on attempted murder, assault, fraud and other charges for knowingly, intentionally and willingly exposing people to HIV. It has been reported that he raped some folks as well. I guess they're too busy refiling charges on Bill Cosby to focus on all these white men.

  • Allihave2say

    All this makes me wonder if Hugh took a quiet way out. I just researched the reported comment from Hugh and a lawsuit was filed last year against him alleging he conspired with Bill Cosby to rape a teenager at the Mansion.

  • Allihave2say

    Do you think Bill has dropped some nuggets?

  • Allihave2say

    He was voted in under that social awareness. White women traded their dignity for racism and hate. Trump won't spit on them if they're on fire but he'll make America great again, slavery, whites don't work but get wealthy off blacks, Mexicans (Native Americans) will be trapped in Mexico, etc.

    The dichotomy here is that
    1. Some demented women believe his sexual behavior proves they're desirable.
    3. The others trust in the lies of racism and believe their lives will be better because everything will be taken from others and given to them.

  • Allihave2say

    I'm going to reach here with this comment. Chris Brown was young and dumb fighting a woman, even though she admitted to often fighting him and other men. Nonetheless all these men had so much to say as champions for Rhianna, out to destroy CB ( they succeeded in doing so too, he's now he's on drugs, mentally ill and dirty). All these men, the storytellers, the saviors and champions were doing all sorts of damage to women while smiling in our face and standing in front a a young black boy branding their status as white saviors.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Nothing would surprise me, and to protect his legacy too!

  • Allihave2say

    I find it hard to believe that the alleged doctor who provided the date rape drugs and Hugh Heffnner weren't charged with the same crimes as conspirators of rape. Many of the allegations took place at Hugh's house.
