The first day on a new job can always bring a little anxiety, but it usually ends well. That is, unless, you are A.J. Clemente.
The budding would-be news anchor was just fired by KFYK-TV, of Bismark, N.D., for uttering the words “f*cking s*hit” just one second after appearing on air for the first time. According to Gawker, Clemente was practicing teasers and didn’t realize his microphone and this is what happened (WARNING: GRAPHIC):
What caused the outburst? Clemente says on Twitter that he was trying to pronounce the name of London Marathon winner Tsegaye Kebede. Ouch. More from A.J.:
Rookie mistake. I’m a free agent.Cant help but laugh at myself and stay positive.Wish i didnt trip over my “Freaking Shoes” out of the gate.
