TODAY Al Roker has been held accountable for crashing a photo taken by two colleagues on set.
Al shared a few snaps of co-workers Laura Jarrett and Kristen Welker on Instagram.
However, they weren’t the only people in the picture.
Both women posed apart in the weather section of the Today Show set.
In the background, Al could be seen strutting through.
In the first snap, it looked like he was just looking over at the women.
In the second, however, Al pointed with a huge grin at the women who laughed at his involvement.
He captioned his photos: “My favorite #ladyinred x 2 @laurajarrett and @kristen.welker @todayshow”
Kristen responded by sharing Al’s photo on her own Instagram Stories.
“@alroker, set crasher,” she wrote in a joking caption.

“I loved partnering with @laurajarrett on @todayshow!” she continued.
“@alroker with the Friday vibes. Thank you to the amazing @jennabhager for lending me this blazer.”
Al is okay
Meanwhile, Al changed locations on the Today Show because fans feared for his health.
He reported a “dangerous” place as he stood outside in the poor air quality.
On Friday, Al was brought inside to report on the weather.
Earlier in the week he spoke about poor air quality due to the Canadian wildfires.
The meteorologist discussed the dangers posed by them and the air while standing outside reporting on the weather.
Fans feared for Al because of his ongoing health crises, including blood clots and knee replacements.
The air must have gotten to him because on Friday the 68-year-old reported on the weather from the studio.
He also spoke to Hoda Kotb and Craig Melvin about air quality and sat down at the desk to discuss it.
Al said New York’s air quality scale dropped to a 59, which is moderate, but he still took precautions.
CARING FOR AL
Fans took to the Today page on Twitter to express their concern for Al.
“Please bring @alroker back inside. He’s been through so much with his health. I cringe watching him broadcast from outside,” one Twitter user commented.
“Al should wear a mask outside because of his health issues,” said one fan.
A third chimed in: “Yikes. Bring everyone in.”
“I’m so scared for Al. Can he go back in?” asked another fan.
“Shouldn’t everyone be wearing masks?” asked a concerned fan.
Today she was criticized for making “dangerous” decisions and showing “poor judgement”.
After Al reported the weather from outside, the rest of the hosts joined him on June 7th.
Al shared a photo on Instagram of him chatting with a fan outside the Today Show studio.
“A little haze and smoke doesn’t obscure the smiles on our @todayshow seat nor does it cloud these @photonate images,” he captioned the pic.
However, the photo did not show the orange smog that hung over the city.
Smoke from wildfires in Canada hung over parts of the Northeast, including New York.
The hundreds of fires have contributed to unhealthy air pollution.
New York City had recorded some of its worst air quality readings in years.
Seeing Al and other Today Show hosts outside without masks worried fans.
Under a video posted to Twitter, a concerned fan wrote: “As you know it’s harmful to health so please at least wear a mask. Indoor air quality can also be poor.”
Another commented: “Was I disappointed that the Today show was filmed outside of this morning given the ongoing air quality concerns? Seems like poor judgment? The worst in the world! Air quality, and yet you send your people outside??”
