New York News Anchor Sue Simmons Lets The F-Word Rip


Last night, NBC viewers in New York got an earful during a commercial break as WNBC news anchor Sue Simmons did a promo for the 11:00 broadcast.

Following her tease for the upcoming news program, Simmons exploded: "What the fuck are you doing?"

She apologized during the news hour: "While we were live just after 10 o'clock, I said a word that many people find offensive. I am truly sorry. It was a mistake on my part, and I sincerely apologize."

Watch the clip, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. She's a piece of work. I hear she's a horror in the newsroom, so "what the f**k are you doin?!" is the least of it. Guess it's all that pent-up closeted lesbianism coming out.

  4. I'm so sick to death of people acting like they've had their delicate senses offended. What a load of crap! She didn't offend anyone, she EMBARRASSED herself for being an ass in public. WTFE. Personally, I find it hilarious.

  5. FUCK

    When are people going to realize that FUCK is a wonderful word.

    Fuck is fucking great as an expletive to express ones utter fucking frustration.

    Fuck is also wonderful because sometimes love making just doesn't cut it, and all you want to do is FUCK your boyfriends brains silly.


    So FUCK the sensitive types that need to just get fucked so the rest of us can fucking live ourlives without walking on fucking egg shells.

  7. Personally, I love the woman and I think her saying 'fuck' just gives her even more personality. She seems like a really cool lady and I"m glad she knows how to give it to someone.

  8. But WHY did she say it? No one on any of the blogs has said anything about what unseen offense caused the outburst.

  9. A nice attempt... but I prefer the original "Don't FUCK with me fellas!"

  10. As Miles does, I too want to know what the fuck happenned to cause Sue to say it.

  11. Good for fucking her. She rocks. Love Sue.

  12. Fuck is a great word...she's not a classy lady though...what a piglet.

  13. "Guess it's all that pent-up closeted lesbianism coming out."

    Since when is she in the closet? I think it's pretty well-established she's a lesbian.

  14. THAT'S why Sue is a New York institution. Hilarious...Cindy Adams must have just walked on the set.

  15. I don't suppose Sue's going to lose her job the way WCBS-TV newshunk Arthur Ch'ien did a few years ago when he uttered the same epithet (as he was being harassed on air). At least he bounced back on New York's Channel 11, but he should really go network. Love the guy.

  16. This is my clipoftheweek! What makes it really funny to me is the way in which she emphasizes the words FUCK and YOU! Simply Brilliant...

  17. ya i love how she hits the word "FUCK." Can feel it in me bones!

  18. Aw. I love Sue. Even more so because she can cuss like a sailor. I found this compilation of Kasey Kasem outtakes to be similarly amusing -- especially in that Kasey Kasem voice.

  19. If our esteemed vice president DICK Cheney said it, I certainly hope she doesn't catch any flack for it.

  20. Sue was apparently upset that, for some unknown reason, the camera had cut from her face to some footage of a cruise ship. Her "what the fuck are you doing?" was directed at the guy (editor maybe?) who made the accidental cut. It's her bitchy tone of voice rather than what she said that gets me.

  21. I've watched it about a dozen times (slow day here at work) and it just gets funnier!

  22. omg i grew up with sue simmons; THAT was awesome!!!

  23. I love Sue Simmons - and I beg to differ, she actually is a classy dame and also one of NYC's Grand Dikes.

  24. I'll never look at a cruise ship the same way again. :-)
