And now that his lewd comments with Donald Trump have come to light, we're willing to bet the ones who did like him have gone ahead and jumped off that scandalized ship!

ICYMI, recently-released audio revealed the 44-year-old having an incredibly sexist chat with the GOP candidate in 2005 before shooting a segment for Access Hollywood, in which the presidential hopeful talked about trying to f*ck a married woman — later identified as Nancy O'Dell — and grabbing women "by the p*ssy."
Now, a source tells Us Weekly that Billy's fellow TODAY cast members didn't like him… even before the disgusting conversation was released.
The insider explained that Matt Lauer, Al Roker, and Tamron Hall share an extreme dislike the TV personality, so they're probably thrilled he's suspended indefinitely!
Plus, the confidante confessed that the NBC host's continued career at the popular daytime program is uncertain. Da doi…
However, another source at the show said everyone is content with Billy's current punishment, saying:
"The anchors and hosts of the show each had a good relationship with Billy. The show staff is comfortable with how the situation is being handled."
Jeb Bush's cousin has since apologized for taking part in the awful conversation, and his Access Hollywood colleagues apparently don't hold the same resentment for him as his TODAY coworkers.

On Monday morning's installment of the entertainment news program Kit Hoover said:
"He was always in my corner. I was just devastated to watch all this unfold because the Billy that I know — and that a lot of people would say — has the biggest heart of anybody, and he is a good person."
Natalie Morales also shared fond memories of Billy, adding:
"One of the first people to call me and congratulate me when I announced that I would be getting this job was Billy. He also offered advice and offered to help with my move and transition."
What are UR thoughts on all this, Perezcious readers?!
