During the episode of Friday morning's "Today" show viewers saw Savannah Guthrie flip off Matt Lauer!
Today fans immediately too to Twitter and Facebook and #Fingergate started trending. They wanted to know the real score and wanted to see some evidence if it really did happen.
What ensued on the show was, during a segment on vacuum cleaners Lauer made a joke about Guthrie’s cleaning abilities. The Today co-host apparently didn’t find it funny and gave Lauer the bird.
At least, that’s what it looks like.
Judging by Guthrie’s face, it definitely appears like she is flipping Lauer the bird. But judging by her actual fingers, it appears that she may be using her index finger.
“Folks!! That was my INDEX finger! Photo evidence proving my innocence coming!
#fingergate #TGIF. We have examined the tape… index finger indeed. #phew.”
