Al Roker Calls Out Matt Lauer On The Today Show BIG-TIME For Throwing Ann Curry "Under The Bus!"

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV News

WOW.

We've all seen some pretty tense, awkward exchanges this summer on The Today Show in light of Ann Curry's abrupt firing, reportedly at the behest of Matt Lauer, but this one seriously takes the "OH NO HE DIDN'T" cake!

And we're OBSESSED!

Apparently, Al Roker is still pretty sour over the whole ordeal, and took an opportunity to call out his co-anchor in the middle of an interview with Olympic rowers, essentially saying that Matt threw Ann under the bus!

Watch it all go down for yourself (above)!

Hot damn!

You need some ICE for that BUUUUUURN, boy?!

But in all honesty, with the way that poor woman has been treated, we're glad to hear that not EVERYONE on the show approves of it…and is speaking out!

ESPECIALLY since the ratings are just as crappy as they were WITH her!

Ugh. Such a shame!

Here's hoping Roker keeps that SASS coming!

    If you're going to steal a story, asshole, tell the story in such a way that YOU DON'T LOSE THE POINT. CONTEXT, you ignorant cretin, is crucial. Everyone needs to go to tee-emm zee to read it so they GET it. Not everyone is willing or able to watch the video, you stupid pansy.

    Good for Al!! Matt was pretty low and dirty to reward loyalty by throwing Ann under the bus the way he did and honestly, if their ratings are still going down, maybe Matt is the problem…

    It's not clear at all this his remark was necessarily about Ann - it's vague enough to be just an offhand throwaway joke.

    Al Roker is 100% right. Ann Curry was the best co-host Today ever had. And she got treated so unprofessionlly by NBC News President Steve Capus. Capus made public critical comments about Ann's work. His comments, I think were not accurate. Ann did great interviews of celebreties - see her interviews of the casts of Madagascar and Spider Man. And then Capus said Ann's heart wasnt in the Today Show. Duh - did he see Ann's farewell speech at 6/28/
    Ann worked 16 yrs

    Hot Damn!!! Way To Go Mr. Roker!!! Call out that back stabbing cheater Lauer for what he did!! Cuz he did throw Ann under the bus, and I am so glad your ratings are tanking almost as bad as your hair loss Matt! Never watched GMA ever….but guess what, I AM NOW! Matt Lauer is such a jerky Pig! And we all know he doesn't wear the pants in his family…..his wife controls him ever since he cheated on her!

    Al Roker has integrity just like Ann Curry. Al Roker is in a minority just like Ann Curry. Al Roker told the truth and Americans everywhere are so very proud of him. Matt the Ratt Lauer is dispicable for orchestrating Ann Curry's humiliatingly brutal ousting. I have been told on good authority that those two creeps, Jim Bell and Steve Capus are conspiring retaliation against Al Roker at this very moment. NBC REALLY only wants white people on-air. Tamron Hall and Hoda Kotb had better brace themselves for the Al Roker fallout!

    Good work Al, although now I would be fearing for your job. Matt is a sneaky bastard and now he is going to go the higher ups and cry about you embarrassing him on tv. Boo frickin hoo Matt. You need to be LITERALLY pushed under a bus!!!

    Matt is a douche! Have never liked him, but like him even less now. He is the reason the ratings are down. Why can't they see it? It actually was hard for me to watch when he was commentating the Olympics too. When he was on, I would turn to another channel to view what was going on over there. He's a jerk. He needs to go.



  22. 22

    That was AWESOME!



  23. 23

    Yaaaay Al! Matt Lauer is such a pompous, douchebag, jerk. He plays the high and mighty card, but please, that guy goes home to a broken family and empty existence.



  24. 24

    I can't believe how far people can run with a vague statement. Way to stick a square peg in a round hole.

    I usually don't care too much for Roker, but that was a nice dig at the true asswipe of the Today Show - Matt Lauer.

    I know Al he and I get together and cut some of the smelliest of farts. It's fun!

    Matt Lauer is a pompous back-stabbing puke. I hate the no sock look with his expensive loafers. He was trying to look like a European wealthy playboy while at the London Olympics, He looks like a skinny balding has-been. We do not watch the Today show anymore because we can't stand him. I hope he gets insulted everyday. You go Al. The Amazon sucks too.

    I hope Ann Curry goes on to bigger and better things. The Today show is a sinking ship and I hope that jerk Lauer goes down with it.

    Al Roker is the man,I agree with him .The only bad thing about Ann was the long yellow dress she had on a week before she got fired.Did Matt pick that dress out for her to wear that day? I will never forget that dress,I thought she was out of her mind for wearing it.

    The song [You're So Vain]written and recorded by Carly Simon could have been referring to Matt Lauer. No wait, back then he was more than likely a pimply-faced, butt-munching littleweasel in the making.I hope Al Roker and the whole world turns on that Abe Vigoda look-alike.Look in the mirror Lauer , your looks are gone and I hope your career is too..
