(AllHipHop News) This is the definition of “reality tv”. On today’s (June 6th) live broadcast of NBC’s Today show, a man sliced both of his wrists.
According to witnesses, the man was disheveled and ranting about how the Internal Revenue Service ruined his life. After throwing a stack of IRS documents in the air, the man took out a pocket knife and screamed “I’m going to cut myself” before eventually slicing both his wrists.
The incident was not captured on live television but it did force Matt Lauer and the Today show crew to abort a planned segment outside.
The man was transported to St. Luke’s Hospital and he will survive.
Check below for a brief video of the police restraining the man after the incident:
