Matt Lauer is reportedly upset that people are yelling at him over Ann Curry’s ouster from NBC’s morning news show “Today.”

According to TMZ, a source said Lauer is “miserable” and “freaked out” by some of the things people have been saying to him in public.

People have yelled at him “You got Ann fired. Does that make you happy?”

Lauer has been at the center of negative reports since Curry left “Today.” Many have speculated that he helped with her removal in June.

NBC executives have had to defend Lauer saying he advocated for a more smooth transition from Curry to Savannah Guthrie.

In Curry’s last months at “Today” ratings continuously slipped and the network made the decision to let her go.
