Matt Lauer Expresses His Regret & Remorse
Matt Lauer has broken his silence with an apology a day after he was fired from the “Today” show for sexual misconduct.
The 59-year-old TV journalist’s spot was completely blown up with multiple allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault from former female colleagues.
In his apology, Matt said he is truly sorry for the pain he’s caused others, but he also noted that some of the allegations against him are untrue.
Via Page Six:
“There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions,” he said in a statement. “To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry.
“As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC.”
Lauer added that some of what has been said about him is “untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed.”
“I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly,” he continued. “Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I’m committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full time job.
“The last two days have forced me to take a very hard look at my own troubling flaws. It’s been humbling. I am blessed to be surrounded by the people I love. I thank them for their patience and grace.”
