NBC Nightly News’ Brian Williams really stepped in it the other night when he excluded late night host Arsenio Hall from a video montage of various late night hosts over the years.
The video was used in Monday’s nightly news segment on the Tonight Show debut of Jimmy Fallon, as well as on NBC. On Tuesday night, Arsenio took offense of what he called NBC News’ Brady Bunch montage for leaving him out of the feature – here’s what he had to say:
“If you’re doing a story about late night, all I ask is that you mention me. You don’t even have to use a photo…use Samuel Jackson’s, it doesn’t have to be my photo!” he joked.
Well that prompted a quick on air response from Brian Williams, who apologized all the way from Russia where he is covering the Sochi Winter Olympics.
Watch the apology on The Arsenio Hall Show below.
