NBC host of the “Today” show Matt Lauer was fired Wednesday morning amid allegations of sexual misconduct.
NBC specifically cited an incident between Lauer and another NBC official during the 2014 Olympic Games in Russia, but suggested there were other incidents.
Since the stunning announcement, several people have come forward with stories relating to Lauer – check here and here.
A video of Lauer and NBC colleague Willie Geist has recently resurfaced, Twitchy reports, where the two men “participate in a joke segment mocking the seriousness of sexual assault in the workplace.”
Here’s the clip:

How did they ever think this was a good idea?
Here’s what people are saying about the video in light of Lauer’s firing:
This Today show segment is part of the problem. Real harassment is not a joke.

This is insane and totally offensive. Interesting that Dustin Hoffman was involved too. Almost like a red herring.

This actually aired????

This was so cringeworthy to watch. Fake segments about sexual harassment/assault isn’t a laughing matter.

OMFG!! This is too hard to believe & watch, Lauer & the @TODAYshow joking about & belittling the idea of harassment. Makes me sick. 😧
