Katie Couric Breaks Silence on Matt Lauer: 'It's Completely Unacceptable'

Katie Couric Breaks Silence on Matt Lauer: 'It's Completely Unacceptable' Katie Couric Breaks Silence on Matt Lauer: 'It's Completely Unacceptable'
Hannah Rogers | 14 January, 2018, 02:19

Until her People interview, Couric had only commented once on the Lauer scandal, last month on Instagram in response to a user asking her why she had not spoken up.

NBC News fired Matt Lauer on November 29 as a result of an internal complaint about "inappropriate sexual behavior".

The woman who submitted the complaint alleged Lauer began behaving inappropriately while in Russian Federation covering the Winter Olympics in 2014, according to NBC.

13, 2018, Katie Couric opened up to People about Matt Lauer's shocking termination from NBC News. "Matt was a kind and generous colleague who treated me with respect", she continued. The truth is that a joke I created on late night television was only this, as it was utterly contrary to our brother-sister relationship. It's still very upsetting.

Couric, who has faced backlash for staying quiet on the issue since the news broke, said the accounts she read were "disturbing, distressing and disorienting". Though Couric was a longtime co-host of Lauer's, she claims to have had no idea of his wrongdoings. "I really admire the way Savannah (Guthrie) and Hoda (Kotb) and the entire "Today" show staff have handled a very hard situation".

Lauer was sacked in November over the allegations of multiple women, one of whom claimed he sexually assaulted her while they worked on the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Women also told Variety that Lauer gave one female staff member a sex toy as a gift, adding a note describing how he wanted to use it on her.

"It's incredibly upsetting and I will say something when I'm ready to". "Thanks for your interest".

Katie Couric has broken her silence over her former Today co-host Matt Lauer's firing amid sexual harassment and assault claims.

"There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions", Lauer said in a statement released by NBC.
