LEAKED: Footage Shows MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell’s Unhinged Outakes

This is crazy.

Leaked footage released this week shows MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell going into fits of rage and disrespecting his colleagues during apparent breaks in his reporting.

The behind-the-scenes footage, obtained by “Mediaite,” seems like it came from a broadcast on August 29th. O’Donnell repeatedly yells at people in the control room and uses obscenities to express his frustration.

In a tweet Wednesday, the reporter apologized for his actions. “A better anchorman and a better person would’ve had a better reaction to technical difficulties. I’m sorry,” he wrote.

Watch the meltdown in the clip above.
