TV Anchor Fired For Cursing On Air

A TV anchor was fired after cursing on air. A.J. Clemente was probably too nervous he dropped the “F” bomb during his first (and last) newscast on KYFR, an NBC station in Bismarck, North Dakota.

It’s a rule of thumb among news anchors and reporters not to curse in front of the camera because you never know when the microphone will be turned on, says CP Entertainment.

Clemente uttered “F-----g s--t” a brief moment before his first newscast about a vehicular crash. He had his job for only 15 seconds, got suspended after that, and was eventually terminated.

On his Twitter page, Clemente apologized for what he did.

“Tough day,Thanks for the support,We all make mistakes. Im truly sorry for mine. I’ll try my hardest to come back better and learn from this,” he tweeted.

The network was quick to give Clemente the boot to make sure he won’t make the same mistake ever again.

“Unfortunately KFYRTV has decided to let me go. Thank you to them and everyone in ND for the opportunity and everyone for the support,” he continued.

In spite of what happened, some netizens expressed comforting words to the TV anchor who got fired for profanity.
