Matt Lauer Makes Offensive Remark On TODAY: “Don’t Be An Indian Giver!”

By Radar Staff

Matt Lauer danced outside the boundaries of political correctness on the TODAY show broadcast from London Monday, telling former co-worker Meredith Vieira, “Don’t be an Indian giver.”

In the segment, Meredith was passing out commemorative Olympic underwear for ladies from designer Stella McCartney, including one to Lauer.

When Meredith tried to get the underwear back from Matt, he said, “No, no no, they’re mine … don’t be an Indian giver!”

Matt’s not the first celeb to sputter verbally in that regard, as Kris Jenner and Jessica Simpson have both faced  criticism after using the offensive phrase.
