On Wednesday Matt Lauer was fired from NBC after reports surfaced that the “Today” Host made unwanted sexual advanced on multiple women. Now this creepy footage was revealed where he tells Katie Couric to “keep bending over.”
As the co-host of NBC’s “Today,” Matt Lauer once gave a colleague a sex toy as a present. It included an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her, which left her mortified.
On another day, he summoned a different female employee to his office, and then dropped his pants, showing her his penis. After the employee declined to do anything, visibly shaken, he reprimanded her for not engaging in a sexual act.
He would sometimes quiz female producers about who they’d slept with, offering to trade names. And he loved to engage in a crass quiz game with men and women in the office: “f—, marry, or kill,” in which he would identify the female co-hosts that he’d most like to sleep with.
Many people enjoyed Lauer as a morning TV show host. The people who worked with him closely described him as a nightmare.

This footage was caught by a local NBC affiliate in 2006.
This isn’t the only time Lauer was busted acting inappropriately toward Couric.
While appearing on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” Katie told And that Matt’s most annoying habit was “he pinches me on the ass a lot.”
What a creep. Good riddance.
