TODAY slammed over “disgraceful” interview with pro-gun Columbine survivor
The hosts of the Today show have been left embarrassed after their interview with Columbine High School shooting survivor Evan Todd did not go the way they expected.
The Weekend Today interview coincided with the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School shootings, along with the growing momentum of the March for Our Lives movement in the United States.
However, the interviewee, Columbine survivor Evan Todd, holds the controversial opinion that staff in schools should be armed, and while he empathises with the students of the March for Our Lives movement, he does not agree with their political views.
Hosts of Weekend today, Peter Stefanovic and Allison Langdon have been accused of insensitivity over their response to Mr Todd’s views.
Worse perhaps, than the aggression on display from both hosts, is the fact that Langdon Referred to Mr Todd as “Eric” twice during the interview. Eric Harris was one of the two school shooters.
