HASTA LAUER VISTA! NBC Boots Metrosexual Matt for Sexual Harassment (of a Female) … REACTION

In retrospect, we should have known it was a bad omen when NBC a few weeks ago had a pathetic but inadvertently hilarious segment during halftime of a Sunday Night Football game featuring Matt Lauer lewinskying up to Creepy Joe Biden while the two were being just, you know, two regular guys at an Irish bar having some sliders and wings, duuuuuuuuuuuude!

In fact, the segment called to mind the following hilarious-BUT-CRUDE-AND-NOT-FOR-CHILDREN-GOT-THAT? let-me-try-really-really-hard-to-be-a-regular-guy scene from the 2009 Sacha Baron Cohen movie Brüno:

But anyhow, where were we? Yeah, as much of America found out upon waking up Wednesday morning, Murica’s Morning Married-to-a-Model Metrosexual, Matt Lauer, was booted from NBC.

According to NBC News Chairman Andy Lack, in a released statement:

Dear Colleagues,

On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer. It represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment. While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over twenty years he’s been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.

Our highest priority is to create a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected, and to ensure that any actions that run counter to our core values are met with consequences, no matter who the offender.

We are deeply saddened by this turn of events. But we will face it together as a news organization — and do it in as transparent a manner as we can. To that end, Noah and I will be meeting with as many of you as possible throughout the day today to answer your questions.

Andy

According to CNN’s Brian Stelter, The New York Times has been working for several weeks on a story about sexual harassment by Lauer.

Yes, of courser the Twitterverse had PLENTY to say about this development, e.g.:
