April 22 (UPI) -- A.J. Clemente, a new weekend news anchor for KFYR-TV in Bismarck, North Dakota opened his first-ever live broadcast by dropping an "F-Bomb" during Sunday night's show.

The Daily Mail reports that right before the broadcast began Clemente said a couple of profanities into his live microphone leaving his co-anchor Van Tieu, a little confused.

"'Fuc*ing sh*t," Clemente uttered before Tieu officially introduced him.

Clemente was suspended shortly after the incident and on Monday he announced via Twitter that KFYRTV had decided to fire him.

"Unfortunately KFYRTV has decided to let me go. Thank you to them and everyone in ND for the opportunity and everyone for the support," he wrote.


Later on he tweeted, "Rookie mistake. I'm a free agent. Cant help but laugh at myself and stay positive. Wish i didnt trip over my 'Freaking Shoes' out of the gate."
