A TV anchor was suspened from his job on his first day after he accidentally swore during a live broadcast. A.J. Clement of North Dakota's KFYR, an NBC affiliate, accidentally said out loud "F---ing sh-t" during a broadcast. The new anchor was obvoiusly aware that his mic was still when he slipped the words.

Clement was suspended, then fired as a result of his on-air mistake using profanity.

Shortly after his mistake, Clement tweeted: "That couldn't have gone any worse!"

Clement's co-anchor Van Tieu had to issue a formal apology to viewers before opening the 10 p.m. news hour. "We were caught off guard and [Clemente] didn't realize his microphone was on. And while that was no excuse - we do train our reporters to always assume that any microphone is live at any time - unfortunately we cannot take back what was said. But, we do apologize and hope that you may forgive us and rest assured, that something like this will not happen again.," Tieu said.

Clemente also apologized Monday on Twitter for his gaffe.

"Tough day,Thanks for the support,We all make mistakes. Im truly sorry for mine. I'll try my hardest to come back better and learn from this."

But he later shared the bad news that he was fired from his job."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 said.
