Did Al Roker's Ryan Lochte Rant Get Him In Trouble With NBC?!

no title

Ryan Lochte certainly upset a lot of people for lying about getting robbed in Rio… but is he the only one pissing people off in this scandal?!

Last week, Al Roker SLAMMED the sports star on TODAY for fabricating a story about being held up at gunpoint while in the Brazil city for the 2016 Olympics.

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:

Ryan Lochte Admits He's A 'Drunk Frat Boy' In HIGHlarious Songified Version Of His Rio Robbery Apology! Watch & Sing Along!

After getting caught in his lie about getting robbed at gunpoint in Rio, Ryan Lochte is feeling pretty bad for himself.

The Olympics swimmer recently sat down with Matt Lauer to apologize not even a week after he lied straight to the NBC anchor's face — admitting he acted like a "drunk frat boy" who had "too much to drink" and "exaggerated" the events of the night.

Thankfully, the creative folks behind the YouTube channel Schmoyoho — the people who famously "songified" Antonie Dondson's Hide Yo Kids news clip — gave Lochte's weepy interview the same musical treatment!

Not only did The Gregory Brothers remix the gold medalist's apology into autotuned harmonies, but they also added comments from Today anchors Billy Bush and Al Roker — who viciously chastised Lochte for leaving his teammates in Brazil while he "skedaddled" back to the U.S.

Watch Today's Al Roker GO OFF On Ryan Lochte Over His Rio Robbery Lie!

Al Roker may be the weatherman of the Today show, but he is bringing down the HEAT on Ryan Lochte for lying about getting robbed in Rio!

On Friday's broadcast, the NBC anchor went off on the Olympic swimmer after it was revealed his claims of being robbed at gunpoint with teammates Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger, at a gas station in Brazil were false!

After Lochte insisted he was telling the truth, surveillance footage from the gas station showed that the swimmers were not robbed, but had a confrontation with security guards after causing damage to the bathroom — clearly exposing the Olympian's lie!

Not only did Roker slam the athlete for repeatedly lying about his story (nobody lies to Matt Lauer and gets away with it!), but for leaving his teammates detained in Brazil — where Bentz and Conger eventually admitted that their story was "fabricated" — while he jetted back to the US.

After his on air spout, Roker took to Twitter to retweet Lochte's apology, advising others to "accept it and move on":

America's favorite weatherman is signing off!

No, we're not talking about Al Roker, but his predecessor Willard Scott — who will retire on Tuesday after 35 years on the Today show and 65 years on NBC!

The 81-year-old's retirement was announced by Matt Lauer on Friday's show.

Scott handed off weather reporting duties to Roker in the 1990s, but stayed on the air for his renowned segment celebrating viewers' 100th birthdays with Smuckers' jelly!

But that's not all Scott is known for — he also played Ronald McDonald in the McDonald's commercials back in the 1960s!

Roker paid tribute to his predecessor, saying:

Al Roker Calls Out NYC Taxis For Racial Discrimination — Relive His Ordeal HERE!

Al Roker isn't playing!

On November 21, Al posted a series of tweets recounting his awful experience with a New York City taxi.

Apparently, a taxi driver passed by Roker and his 13-year-old son only to pick up a white man a block away. Considering there was no reasonable explanation for the cabbie to make this decision, the weatherman came to the sad conclusion that the incident was motivated by race.

Ugh. Are we really living in 2015?! So awful if this was the case!

Take a look at A.R.'s tweets (below)!
