CNN has apologized after a reporter and producer were caught joking on camera about Donald Trump’s plane crashing.

In footage obtained and posted on YouTube by Scott Jones of FTV Live, an unidentified producer can be heard telling reporter Suzanne Malveaux that the president-elect’s plane crashed.

“That means his plane’s crashed,” the producer says as Malveaux grins. “No, I’m kidding.”


The network issued a statement Friday saying the producer would be “disciplined.”

“An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday,” CNN said. “We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”
