Diane Sawyer’s coverage of the presidential election on ABC News drew some viewers’ attention, but maybe not the kind of attention she intended, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A number of viewers said they thought Sawyer was slurring her words, and Twitter lit up with comments, the story notes. The hashtag #drunkdianesawyer was one used by many Twitter users.
"Diane Sawyer’s Election Night performance left some viewers asking if she had begun celebrating Tuesday’s election a bit early," notes the Associated Press. "Sawyer spoke more slowly than usual while seeming to prop herself on outstretched arms at the anchor desk she shared with George Stephanopoulos."
An ABC spokesman didn’t comment, according to the AP.
