Matt Lauer Bashed for Anne Hathaway Wardrobe Malfunction Wisecrack on 'Today' LA Times, Huffington Post

"Today" co-host Matt Lauer is under fire for a comment he made to actress Anne Hathaway about a recent wardrobe malfunction, reports the Los Angeles Times' Show Tracker.

The actress appeared Wednesday on "Today" to promote her new film "Les Miserables," and Lauer made a joke about an incident in which Hathaway was photographed getting out of a limo wearing a dress and no underwear.

"Seen a lot of you lately!" he said, according to the story.

Hathaway apologized and added, "I'm sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants."

Lauer is receiving a backlash from his joke, with The Huffington Post writing, "Well this was not one of Matt Lauer's finer moments."

The New York Post called Lauer's comment a "tasteless quip."
