NBC Not Happy That Brian Williams Blasts Lana Del Rey's 'SNL' Performance


The Peacock asks Gawker to remove the post of the 'Nightly News' anchor's email that says Del Rey 'had one of the worst outings in SNL history', but the site seemingly ignores the network's request.

NBC's anchor Brian Williams is apparently one of the people who are not amused by Lana Del Rey's musical performance on "Saturday Night Live". When offering critiques to Gawker's content, the host of "Rock Center with Brian Williams" inserted his opinion on the gig that aired last Saturday, January 14.

Williams said that he wishes the main page of Gawker featured more TV coverage, citing Del Rey's "SNL" performance as an example for a possible headline. "Brooklyn hippster [sic] Lana Del Rey had one of the worst outings in SNL history last night - booked on the strength of her TWO SONG web EP, the least-experienced musical guest in the show's history," the 52-year-old wrote.

NBC later sent Gawker an email to ask the site to remove the post. "That was sent in confidence as friends and absolutely never intended to be public," so the network's PR Team reasoned. The site, however, appears to be ignoring the request and posts the Peacock's email alongside Williams' message instead.

Lana Del Rey was booked as the musical guest on "SNL" for an episode hosted by Daniel Radcliffe. The 25-year-old YouTube sensation was then slammed by viewers who called her too green for a primetime and deemed her performance too boring.
