Watch: MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell Goes Berserk on Staff in Leaked Video

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell had a complete meltdown during a taping of his show last month, frustrated over the “insanity in his earpiece” coming from the control room and the “hammering” he was hearing.

In eight-minute footage released from Mediaite, which compiled the outbursts throughout the show, O’Donnell lashed out at his staff in profanity-laced tirades. 

"Someone in that control room is out of control," he said during the Aug. 29 edition of “The Last Word,” adding, "F---. G-- d--n it."

When he can still hear the noise, he bangs his fists on the desk, continuing to yell, ""F—k” and “G-d d--n it.”

"Every time we go to a [clip], there’s a woman talking in my ear about something that has nothing to do with what we’re doing here," he yelled.

Then, when hammering sounds could be heard, O’Donnell loses it, screaming “Stop the hammering! Stop the hammering out there! Who’s got a hammer? Where is it? Where’s the hammer?”

He kept going: “I’ll go down to the G------ed floor myself and stop it. Keep the G------ed commercial break going! Call f---ing [MSNBC President] Phil Griffin! I don’t care who the f---- you have to call!”

“Stop the hammering,” he added. “Empty out the G------ed control room and find out where this is going on!”

Later in the show he also go upset over the editing of a clip.

"I told you why I wanted those f---ing words cut," he says to an unknown producer before adding. "It just f---ing sucks. It f---ing sucks to be out here with this out of control s---."

Warning: Strong Language

 

O’Donnell apologized hours after the video was released, writing on Twitter: "A better anchorman and a better person would've had a better reaction to technical difficulties. I'm sorry."
