Lawrence O’Donnell has apologized for snapping at staffers in leaked footage.
“A better anchorman and a better person would’ve had a better reaction to technical difficulties,” the “Last Word” host tweeted on Wednesday. “I’m sorry.”
Outtakes from his Aug. 29 episode showed the MSNBC personality losing his cool over apparent noise in his earpiece. The outburst was first leaked by Mediaite on Wednesday.
“Stop the hammering!” O’Donnell bellowed at his team in the leaked video. “F—ing out-of-control s—.”
His tweet is below. The video can be seen above.
