For a guy who just lost his job, A.J. Clemente is doing pretty well!
If that name sounds familiar, it's because he's the North Dakota news anchor who lost his job for dropping the F-bomb just 10 SECONDS into his very first broadcast!
Well A.J. has been a good sport through the whole ordeal, and now he has someone on his side who might know a thing or two about the industry: David Letterman!
The fired anchorman made an appearance on The Late Show to talk about his flub, and the host not only thinks he should get his job back, but he says he's owed an apology:
"There should be an offer, and they should apologize to you. And you should go back because you’re man enough to face the music. You’ve been on this show, you’ve been on a lot of shows, you’ve been on the Twitter and on the Facefeed and all of that stuff. If you want to, you should be offered that job back."
We don't know what Facefeed is, but we think we get the point! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the interview (above)!
With all of the media attention he's getting, we doubt he'll have too much trouble finding work somewhere. As long as he cleans up his language, of course! Ha!
Good luck A.J.!
