Hey, it’s the dog-days, it’s hot, so what’s a little screaming meltdown between friends? Still, it may not go over too well with your bosses.
MSNBC President Phil Griffin and NBC News Steve Capus gave MSNBC host Ed Schultz a warning after the talk-show personality had a meltdown in the network’s newsroom in which he told staff, ""I’m going to torch this [bleep]ing place," reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
Schultz was reportedly upset because the network was airing election-night promos that didn’t include him, the story says. After talking with the network’s marketing department, Schultz reportedly slammed down the phone and had his meltdown, which included him yelling, ""[Bleep]ers!", the article says.
Schultz was informed in the meeting with Capus and Griffin that if he has another meltdown, he will be fired, the story adds. Schultz’ spokeswoman and a representative for MSNBC declined to comment.
