CNN had to apologize after a reporter and producer were caught joking on camera about Donald Trump’s plane crashing.
The video was obtained and posted on YouTube by Scott Jones of FTV Live. The unidentified producer can be heard telling reporter Suzanne Malveaux that the president-elect’s plane crashed.
“That means his plane’s crashed,” the producer says as Malveaux grins. “No, I’m kidding.”
CNN later issued a statement saying the producer would be “disciplined.”
“An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday,” CNN said. “We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”
