The broadcaster called out the scandalized celeb for repeatedly lying about the whole thing, but it seems his on-air rant might've rubbed some people at the morning show the wrong way.
A source told Page Six some staffers on the show are "embarrassed," saying:
"There were several producers and talent who were left trying to explain Al's over-the-top behavior. Several insiders found themselves wanting to distance themselves from his response."
Considering the athlete caused a global scandal and pretty much humiliated the US, we don't think it was unreasonable for the weatherman to be pissed.
But, insiders claim NBC did not approve of the 62-year-old's explosive outburst, adding:
"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."
However, a network exec told the tabloid that no one's actually upset with Mr. Roker, explaining:
"This is not true. No one feels this way. In fact, everyone here is happy — specifically with the ‘Today' show's great ratings."
What do U think?! Was his rant justified?! SOUND OFF in the comments!
