Matt Lauer was looked downcast during a walk in the rain in East Hampton days after Elon Musk called him and NBC out on Twitter.

On Saturday, Lauer was pictured walking across an East Hamptons parking lot wearing a matching blue hoodie, sweatpants and sneakers. 

The disgraced former Today Show host made his way across the parking lot, stepping in puddles as he appears to make his way to his car, after his solo shopping trip.

Lauer was fired from NBC in 2017 following allegations of sexual harassment in the work sphere. In Ronan Farrow’s new book Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators, former NBC producer Brooke Nevils accuses Lauer of sexually assaulting her during non consensual sex at the Sochi Olympics in 2014. 

Lauer responded by saying, ‘There was absolutely nothing aggressive about that encounter. Brooke did not do or say anything to object.’ 

There were also reports that Lauer’s office came supplied with a desk button to lock the door.

His rare public appearance comes after he was called out by name by billionaire Elon Musk, 50, during a Twitter spat with MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan.

On Sunday Hasan, 43, told viewers of his show: ‘It’s easy in American discourse to talk simplistically about the far-left and the far-right as two equally dangerously fringe boxes.

‘Elon Musk has done it plenty of times just in the past week.

‘But here’s the difference. America’s far-left wants to give us free health care and free childcare. America’s far-right wants to give us white supremacy and no democracy.

‘And this asymmetrical polarization of U.S. politics would be laughable if it went so horrifying.’

On Monday Musk, who on April 25 reached an agreement with Twitter’s board to buy the company for $44 billion, accused Hasan of ‘basically saying Republicans are Nazis’

He then criticized Hasan for working for NBC who he claimed helped cover up Lauer’s sexual assault. 

‘Same org that covered up Hunter Biden laptop story, had Harvey Weinstein story early & killed it & built Matt Lauer his rape office. Lovely people,’ he added in another tweet.

Lauer was accused of giving one woman a sex toy and an explicit note saying how he wanted to use it on her. He was also accused of showing another woman his penis in his office and played ‘f***, marry or kill’ in the office.

Other anonymous women are reported to have complained to NBC about Lauer’s sexual impropriety, with one saying she was summoned into his office in 2001 for sex. He would also sometimes quiz female producers about who they had slept with, it has been alleged.

The news giant has laid low since his firing and was most recently spotted in public last October in the Hampton’s with his daughter Romy for her 18th birthday.

Lauer, his daughter and his longtime friend-turned-girlfriend Shamin Abas, were pictured visiting Italian restaurant Tutto Ill Giorno.

There was no sign of Romy’s mother, Annette Roque, who divorced from Lauer in 2017 after the sexual allegations against him became public.
