Carson Daly had beef with Eva Longoria
In recent weeks, Carson Daly has been making headlines for being disrespected by his fellow Today Show co-hosts. He also made snarky comments about his colleagues. Most fans call his personality “cold” and his sense of humor “dry.”
That was the case when Carson interviewed Eva Longoria on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globe awards. He got into a beef with the Desperate Housewives alum. She tried to explain the purpose of the #MeToo and Times Up, which swept the nation at the time. Carson tried to downplay the aspect of both movements.
The former TRL host called it a moment that would continue “throughout tonight and for the next weeks and months.” Eva informed him that it was a movement, not a moment and that “tonight is just one small part of that.” He never apologized for the comments he made.
Offends the LGBTQ community
Per The U.S. Sun, Carson Daly also offended the LGBTQ community. During his radio show in 2012, he talked about a story about a group of passengers who helped someone who was having a mental breakdown. The incident took place on a JetBlue flight. Passengers tackled Clayton Osbon to the ground after he left his cockpit and stormed into the center aisle to make dangerous comments.
The passengers forced an emergency landing in Amarillo, Texas. One passenger ended up hurt. Carson joked that if the passengers were gay, they wouldn’t have used the same force.
“It was like a bunch of well-trained dudes, thank God,” Carson Daly said at the time. “With my luck, it would be like, ‘This is the flight going to the gay pride parade in San Francisco. ‘Uh, we’re headed down to Vegas for the floral convention.'”
He apologized for his comments and said he was a “supporter of Gay and Lesbian rights.” In his statement, Carson said he explained he wasn’t trying to offend the LGBTQ community and expressed embarrassment over his joke. As fans know, The Voice coach is a practicing Catholic who officiated Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s wedding. He’s good friends with Blake, who has made past controversial comments as well.
Carson Daly opened up about anxiety
The television personality has opened up about his own struggles with mental health. He informed fans that he’s not always calm and composed as he comes off on television. In an interview on Today, Carson Daly opened up about his anxiety. He admitted some of the secret techniques he uses to calm himself down on the air.
In 2018, Carson announced that he has generalized anxiety disorder. The Barmageddon co-host has extreme panic and worry. Carson has struggled with his health over the years as well. He recently had more surgery down on his back to relieve himself from the pain he’s suffered from for years.
