Savannah Guthrie forced to apologize after dropping swear words on TV. She shares a statement
The Today host publicly apologized to her fans after she accidentally said an inappropriate word on live television.
On March 28, 2018, during a live telecast of Today show, Savannah Guthrie accidentally swore in front of the camera.
The 46-year-old co-anchor was caught letting out a curse word on air as she was preparing for the next segment, as shared by Closer Weekly.
Supposedly, Guthrie was heard saying the curse word while looking down at her cue cards prior to the commercial break.
She immediately apologized to her fans for her honest mistake through social media.
On Twitter, she wrote, ‘Check, check — is this thing on? Yeah, I guess it is. So sorry guys. Thanks for being kind and understanding. And guess it’s [a] good thing I don’t wear a mic all day. #OhDarn.’
As for her fans, they expressed their support for Guthrie as they told her through replies that they are completely fine with her mistake.
One social media user said that Guthrie is ‘just like the rest of us’ to make her feel better.
In 2012, Guthrie had her debut as the Today co-anchor. At the time, she was alongside Matt Lauer, who was fired after he was accused of inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.
Recently, Hoda Kotb took Lauer’s place as Guthrie’s co-anchor.

Yeah I guess it is.
So sorry guys. Thanks for being kind and understanding. And guess it’s good thing I don’t wear a mic all day. #ohdarn
As shared by Life & Style, Kotb and Guthrie grew much closer since they had been working closely together.
A source told the media outlet that the duo never thought they would become so close but their relationship grew stronger after Lauer’s exit on the show.
The source claimed that both hosts are hurt for what Lauer did and they allegedly became better friends because of his mistakes.
The insider went on to suggest that the show became so much better with the new duo, and they are reportedly expressing in private that they are proud of themselves.
