A slip of the tongue forces a show host to apologize for her salty language on live TV


Savannah Guthrie, the celebrity host of the Today Show apologized to her audience on Twitter after an incident on the 8th of May.

Guthrie was checking some papers on her desk and was unaware that her microphone was on. She voiced a ripe expletive that had the audience in shock, and the sound men blushing.

As soon as she was aware that her words had gone out live, Guthrie apologized profusely, and later posted an apology on Twitter, quipping that luckily she did not wear a microphone all day.


"Check, check, is this thing on? So sorry, guys. Thanks for being kind and understanding. And guess it's a good thing I don't wear a mic all day."

Savannah Guthrie, Twitter, 8th of May 2018.
