Understandably, the Today show crew is still reeling from the unexpected ousting of Matt Lauer.
As we reported, the longtime anchor was fired Wednesday morning due to alleged “inappropriate sexual behavior.”
A show insider tells People the news came as a huge shock to the morning show team:
“It’s like a death in the family. Everybody is crying. No one knows what the fuck happened. It came out of nowhere.”
We can imagine everyone’s surprise — especially since there weren’t whispers of misconduct leading up to the big news.
The source goes on:
“Everyone wants to know what is going on. Matt was really popular around here.”
We’ll keep you posted as more details come to light.
