Matt Lauer, an anchor of "Today" for two decades, was fired by NBC News after a detailed complaint about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace that took place during the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

The accusation also noted that the alleged behavior continued after the games, NBC News confirmed.

"Today" co-anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb were emotional as they announced Lauer's firing Wednesday, telling viewers at the top of the show that they were processing his departure but didn't yet know all of the details.

In a memo to employees sent Wednesday morning, NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack said the complaint, which was made by a colleague of Lauer's, prompted a serious review and represented a "clear violation of our company's standards."

I always sensed that he was a douchebag.

Remember in Rio when he sat on his high horse and berated Ryan Lochte?
Yeah, f*ck this guy.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.

"inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace" yes, it happens. I bet everyone has heard about, seen, or experienced an example of this.

No sh*t. Women have been saying this for years. At least now something is starting to be done about it.

Another thing about all this is, whatever happened to forgiveness? Practically all of these men have apologized. Doesn't that mean anything?

It goes both ways. The difference is that it doesn't bother men as much as it does women. Some men actually like it when women are doing sexually inappropriate things to them.

More like anecdotes. But I know how much you hate anecdotal evidence.

We aren’t talking about consentual wanted behavior.

We are talking about unwanted harassment.

I thought we were talking about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.

At this point I’m putting Noldor in the CD, “straight up troll” category. He’s less good at it that CD, his posts at least have a shred of possibility that they could come from a genuine POV.

They are the same person to me.

And I really have no clue why people leave serious response to them.

This is a typical YT news thread:

I wonder what YT would be like if everyone just agreed with everyone else all the time. One main post, with every post after that just agreeing. Really stimulating conversation yeah?
