‘Today’ Viewers Demand Savannah Guthrie be Fired?

TODAY host Savannah Guthrie has gone silent on social media amid her feud with Hoda Kotb.

Viewers are demanding the TV star be fired ever since she “snapped” at her co-anchor during a heated cooking segment.

Hoda, 57, and Savannah, 50, are co-anchors of TODAY.

The two have made history as the morning show’s first female co-anchor team in 2018 after a disgraced Matt Lauer was ousted.

But this past month, the duo has not exactly been dynamic on-screen.

As viewers have grown furious with the latter, Savannah has been extremely quiet online.

Savannah has not posted to Instagram in eight days, last sharing a sunny snap with her family-of-three on July 16th.

She posted in swimsuits with Michael, her second husband, whom she married in 2014 – and their two tots.

They share Vale, seven, and Charles, five.

Since then, her Instagram page has gone quiet but the star did share an on-set snap to Twitter.

“The Linda Skeens’ Strawberry Jam was a fan favorite, right Savannah Guthrie,” the show prompted three days ago.

She quote tweeted it and wrote under a photo holding the jam, “she is the best!”

That’s been essentially her only online output in a week, as one viewer harshly replied, “Too bad you’re not.”

Hoda meanwhile did post this week – she enjoyed the relaxing weekend amid the tense feud.

Hoda snapped a selfie on a boat alongside some friends and family, including her two girls – She smiled ear-to-ear and wore a New York Yankee’s cap.

Hoda captioned the post: “Cruising.”

SNIPPY SUMMER

Hoda’s happy boat cruise, and Savannah’s quiet week and weekend, comes after a tense two weeks on-screen.

On July 15th’s episode, Savannah and Hoda teamed up for a cooking segment in the kitchen with cookbook author Elizabeth Heiskell.

As the chef was speaking and Savannah was mixing a salad, Hoda walked over to the table and asked: “Wait – are we done?”

Savannah replied, “Yea that’s it. Moving on. We’ll just move on, we don’t have time for all that,” as she dismissively waved her hand in front of Hoda and cut off the conversation.

Viewers could hear Hoda nervously laughing in the background as a close-up of the camera showed Savannah continuing to mix the salad.

Later, Savannah posted on Instagram sharing an image of the phrase “I’m Not Sorry” which was inside a picture frame.

FANS GO OFF

“They can replace her anytime. She’s phony and not very nice,” one fan roasted Savannah on Twitter after.

Another fan angrily posted: “Fire Savannah Guthrie!”

A third shared: “I’m so sick of Savannah Guthrie being rude, loud, always interrupting and talking over everyone. Love everyone on the show but she needs to go!”

A few days later on July 18th’s episode, the ladies welcomed Lizzo as a musical guest.

At one point, Hoda excitedly grabbed Lizzo’s hand during the live performance and left Savannah in the dust.

C-OUCH!

Both hosts recently returned from some extended vacation time, and fans noticed they seemed “uncomfortable” when they reunited, to begin with.

Savannah had been off on vacation the second week of July, while Hoda was off the week before.

Finally, they reunited, but even before the Lizzo or cooking incident, fans said they seemed very uneasy just sitting on a couch together.

“Y’all all look uncomfortably awkward on the couch,” one viewer said when a segment of them just sitting in a group aired.

ONLY ROOM FOR ONE?

The awkward and absence-filled month come as a source close to production on exclusively told The Sun that behind the scenes, they secretly “can’t stand each other.” 

The insider shared: “Savannah is the boss. After Matt Lauer was ousted, Savannah grabbed power, and she really wanted Willy Geist in Hoda’s role, but his ratings were just not up to par for the network.

“Hoda out maneuvered Savannah and got the spot.” 

Beyond that, the insider wildly added that Savannah “thinks of herself as a real news person,” while Hoda is seen as “the lightweight that drank wine with Kathy Lee Gifford.” 

Fans have predicted that either Savannah or Hoda Kotb will soon be axed from The Today Show amid their alleged on and off-screen drama.
