Oh, sweetie. Bless your cussing heart! A.J. Clemente made his debut as an anchor on an NBC local affiliate yesterday.

You guys are looking at the new weekend Anchor/weekday Reporter of channel 5 in Bismarck, ND. I made it. And so happy! thank you everyone.

Could not have gone worse is an understatement, as Deadspin reported.

Worst debut ever? Or best debut ever? To the video tape!

Twitter users are gasping for breath.

Mr. Clemente took to Twitter and explained that he did not really say the “gay” part.

Some Twitter users are offering support and protesting his subsequent suspension (on day one) with the hashtag #KeepAJ.

Heh. So, there’s that? Will he appear on Letterman? Stay tuned!

Update:

Welp, easy come, easy go. Clemente tweeted out to his followers that he’s officially been given the boot:

Yeah, better luck next time.
