Matt Lauer Getting

Heat from Today Fans

12/27/2012 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
TMZ Live

Matt Lauer's miserable on the job because 'Today' fans are so pissed about Ann Curry's demise ... they're screaming at him on the streets of NYC! Is Matt just the fall guy for NBC's bad planning ... or does he deserve the blame?

Plus, "Django Unchained" has some people -- like Spike Lee -- pissed off because the n-word is spewed 110 times during the movie. Is it offensive, overkill ... or historically accurate? We uncovered some surprising details about the movie AND Spike.

And Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth pulled a fast one ... at the altar! At least that's what inspector Dax is taking from their Christmas pics.

I am not surprised at this. I have never watched Today. Matt has always come off as a pompous jerk to me. Besides, I have never cared for any of his cohosts either. I much prefer GMA. He got Ann Curry fired and expects people to overlook that. Not happening.

The word would have no power at all if black people would simply stop reacting to it.

Regarding the N word: It has been politiczed enormously over recent decades. They used it on the Jeffersons when Weezy said "Oh N--, please!" to George. It's really a shame because it reenforces bad feelings for everyone. Having the N-word be so bad is unneccesary and horrible for all.

How is it ok to say the N word 100+ times, but its wrong to say *** just once?
Something isn't right about that.

Don"t worry, what goes around comes around. If we would just get together and boycott the today show untill ann curry is rehired that would smack the spoiled child, matt ( a-hole ) lauer and put him in his place.

Harvey: "NBC did a poll that said viewers didn't like Ann Curry..." if that were even remotely true, then why all the 'fallout'? BS! Lauer is the crown cronie TV perv.. send him to Fox, and be done with it. (there's a slot open after TMZ Live, right? If not..Lauer will make one!)

Hey TMZ Mod, if you are reading. How about a head's up to the crew that hangs out here for TMZ live, you know, us diehards when you are doing back to back shows. I assumed there would be a show today, and I made it back to post once before the second show went off air. Now I have no fix for the weekend.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
