Tavis Smiley called out PBS on Monday for making what he calls “a huge mistake” when it stopped distributing his show over allegations of sexual misconduct against him.
“I’m going to do anything to protect my reputation,” Smiley said on “Good Morning America.”
PBS didn’t take the host’s morning-show offensive sitting down.
“Tavis Smiley needs to get his story straight,” a PBS spokesperson said in a statement. The rep also confirmed the decision to keep Smiley’s show on indefinite suspension.
“PBS made a huge mistake here,” Smiley said. “They need to fix this. They need to correct it.”
