Okay, so you’ve probably heard about North Dakota-based anchor A.J. Clemente who dropped the F-bomb on his first day on the job.
As per his Twitter feed, he blurted out profanities while trying to figure out how to pronounce the London marathon winner’s name.
Although he didn’t realize his microphone was live, the news director apologized to viewers and stated, “I want to apologize for an incident that occurred prior to our early newscast this evening, when one of our employees used profanity on the air.”
Clemente was suspended at first and then he was let go. His most recent tweets read, “Thanks again for everyone that is supporting me. Friends, family and even the creative humor tweets. #NYC tomorrow”
He added, “Find #TeamAJ a job.”
What do you think? Did KFYR act responsibly in this situation or would his suspension have sufficed?
