Ferocity and bad attitudes over malfunctions on shows has become widespread nowadays but a latest video leak of behind the scenes of a show has taken it to another level. An eight minute video released shows cuts of clips of Donnell getting extremely angry and fumed up over earpiece malfunctioning.
In the video, Lawrence O’Donnell furiousity over leak can be seen from the start after he introduces a video clip about President Trump. As soon as his clip is leaked on-air, a fuming O’Donnell can be seen shouting the following at his staff:
“What’s going on, why am I losing this, why don’t I have sound. Who’s asking for a Labor Day rundown in my ear? God Dammit.”
Following this clip, a new rage is noticed during which Lawrence O’Donnell furiousity over leak can clearly be seen by his words:
“You have insanity in my earpiece. Fuckin.”
He seems to be constantly complaining about an unknown voice in his earpiece after which he shouts loudly:
“STOP THE HAMMERING UP THERE. WHO’S GOT A HAMMER? WHERE IS IT? WHERE’S THE HAMMER? GO UP ON THE OTHER FLOOR. SOMEBODY GO UP THERE AND STOP THE HAMMERING. STOP THE HAMMERING. I’LL GO DOWN TO THE GODDAMNED FLOOR MYSELF AND STOP IT, KEEP THE GODDAMNED COMMERCIAL BREAK GOING. CALL FUCKING PHIL GRIFFIN, I DON’T CARE WHO THE FUCK YOU HAVE TO CALL. STOP THE HAMMERING. EMPTY OUT THE GODDAMNED CONTROL ROOM AND FIND OUT WHERE THIS IS GOING ON.”
A better anchorman and a better person would've had a better reaction to technical difficulties. I'm sorry.
