Matt Lauer Gets Sexist & Racist On Today!

Someone’s been watching that ‘Cigar Store Indian’ episode of Seinfeld too many times!

Matt Lauer, who is always the classiest of gentlemen (Ha!), was the butt of an underwear-themed joke on the Today show this morning, when Meredith Vieira gifted him a pair of Stella McCartney ladies underwear.

In response, Matt essentially calls Meredith a slut, and when she tries to take the underwear back, he calls her a VERY inappropriate phrase (above).

Sexist commentary aside, way to use an ignorant, completely archaic, and utterly racist term Matt Lauer. Jerry Seinfeld making light of the phrase in the 90s doesn’t make it cute…

And this is a world-travelled journalist? Awesome.
