The atmosphere on the “Today” show got a bit awkward this morning, when Al Roker seemed to call out Matt Lauer for allegedly having Ann Curry fired as his co-host.
Roker, Lauer and Savannah Guthrie (Curry’s replacement) were interviewing members of the U.S. Women’s Olympic Rowing team, who revealed their tradition of throwing a teammate into the water after winning a race.
Lauer joked, “The tradition here in New York is you throw her in the Hudson River.”
Roker broke in and said, “Which is different than our tradition… which is you throw one of us under the bus, but that’s another story.”
Guthrie put her hand on Roker’s shoulder, and seemingly chided, “Mr. Roker.”
NBC has since cut the clip from the video on their website.
