A day after being fired by NBC, former “Today” host Matt Lauer on Thursday broke his silence on the mounting sexual misconduct allegations against him — saying some of the accusations are “untrue” but that he is “truly sorry” for the pain he has inflicted.
“There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions,” he said in a statement. “To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry.
“As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC.”
Lauer added that some of what has been said about him is “untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed.”
