A.J. Clemente got his big break for the Bismarck (as in North Dakota) NBC affiliate KFYR on Sunday. He took to Twitter to inform his followers that the station's News Director and GM were reviewing his tapes to determine whether or not he was ready to anchor the news on camera. SPOILER ALERT: He's not.

Clemente's came out of the gate for his first broadcast with an emphatic, "f***in' sh**." It sounds like he might have even thrown a "gay" in there for good measure. Yeah, he's been suspended.

UPDATE: Clemente has been fired over the incident. [Deadspin]
