Steven Tyler proves he’s not ready for morning television, as he wakes up half the country with a good old-fashioned f-bomb.
In what might have offended half of America and made the other half giggle over their cereal, Steven Tyler made quite an appearance on The Today Show this morning. He dropped an f-bomb live on the air, while Al Roker was finishing up the weather.
The slip of the tongue occurred during the 8 a.m. hour while Roker was giving his final words on today’s weather. Tyler was psyching up the crowd in anticipation of his band’s performance, but it seems he had no clue that his microphone was on.
In the background of Roker’s report, the Aerosmith leader yelled, “Hey y’all, thanks for coming out, you crazy f***kers.”
The meteorologist’s quick reply was priceless, as he quipped, “What did he just say? That’s why they haven’t done mornings.”
As if that weren’t bad enough, it was actually Tyler’s second gaffe of the morning.
Earlier in the show, during a promo spot with his band, he said straight to the camera, “Good morning, America.”
It seems the former American Idol judge hasn’t been following the morning show ratings, because the ABC news program he mistakenly mentioned has been handily beating Today ever since the Ann Curry debacle this summer.
Of course, the always-joking Roker again had the best comeback of the morning by saying, “No, no, no, no. That’s why they haven’t done morning television! They don’t even know what show they are on!”
No word yet on whether Al will be buying Aerosmith’s new album, Music From Another Dimension, which drops on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
