Soon thereafter, Michael Strahan made a “rude” comment about her on live television. Read on to learn more and to see what sparked it.
Michael Strahan throws shade on live TV
In a recent broadcast of Good Morning America, the hosts discussed the Apple Event and the latest photos that were unveiled. Michael told Robin Roberts that she needs a new group of friends. That came after she joked that they all have dinosaur phones. It took place on the Wednesday broadcast when they talked about updates on the old iPhones as well as the new ones.
A woman showed some of those phones to the hosts. She told Robin Roberts that each of them comes with tricks and tips on how to use the new features. This caused Robin to bring up a story about her recent trip to Europe. Robin went with her girlfriend Amber Laign and their friends. She noticed that some of them still have old iPhone that has the home button on them.
“That’s how much they have been hanging on to their iPhones,” Robin Roberts told her co-anchors.
“What? No, they need a new one,” Michael said before adding: “You may need new friends too.”
Robin Roberts looked at him in shock. She was speechless over his shade. The moment lasted for about 20 seconds. Michael and George Stephanopoulos laughed before Michael apologized to her friends on the air and even said “hello” to them.
Robin Roberts is “rested” from her trip
Robin Roberts returned to Good Morning America earlier this week. She went on a brief hiatus and returned as promised. On Tuesday, Robin told her followers that she was “rested” and “raring to go” after returning from her trip to Italy and Croatia.
She’s not the only one who’s been away from GMA. Michael Strahan also took a break from the show for several months. However, he didn’t take a break. He was hosting his game show, The $100,000 Pyramid. The reboot of the classic game show airs during the summers.
Unlike his co-anchors, Michael Strahan doesn’t get time off. He’s always busy working. Last week, the former NFL player ran to the bar in his viral video and said that it was “5 o’clock somewhere.”
