It’s turned out to be a hell of a day for MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. After that video of him losing it on his crew late last month surfaced, people had a field day. And can you blame them? O’Donnell’s kind of easy to pick on, what with his off-putting personality and all-around craziness.

Inquiring minds wanted to know: What would O’Donnell say when he found out everyone had seen his mini-meltdowns? Tonight, they got their answer when he took to Twitter to issue an apology:

And after he moves on …

OK, that would be awesome.
