Today’s Craig Melvin throws shade at his TV presenter Lindsay Czarniak live on air – and viewers say there’s no excuse
TODAY star Craig Melvin appeared to throw shade at his wife during a hilarious moment live on air.
On Monday, the host and his co-star Sheinelle Jones shone a light on Jay-Z, who arrived at the Grammy Awards ahead of Beyoncé.
Craig joked that he would be leaving without his wife Lindsay Czarniak if she was taking a long time to get ready, but some viewers were unimpressed.
He said Jay-Z and Beyoncé are “just like me and my wife.”
Craig added, “Sometimes I’m like, ‘You know what, if you’re not done in five minutes, I’m leaving you.”
Sheinelle burst out laughing, but viewers thought Craig had no excuses.
Arianna Davis, Today’s Editor-in-Chief said, “Craig!!!! Lol at least Jay-Z had an excuse to perform.”
Another claimed: “Every married man on earth can relate to this, I promise you.”
And a third Instagram user said: “Sometimes he leaves me and sometimes he doesn’t.”
Others rushed to say it’s her husband who is actually taking longer to get ready.

Beyoncé left fans stunned when she missed her first live award of the night.
She trumped in the Best R&B Song category, but wasn’t there to collect her award.
Host Trevor Noah claimed the “Break My Soul” artist was stuck in traffic.
Beyoncé arrived at the show not long after, which Trevor taunted.
He joked: “The Queen is officially in the building. Ladies and gentlemen, Beyonce Knowles.
“I was shocked that the traffic could stop you. I thought you traveled through space and time.”
But fans weren’t convinced that traffic was the reason the artist was late for the ceremony.
One viewer wrote, “If you all believe for a second that Beyoncé is late in traffic.”
Another commented: “Listen I don’t think she was in traffic. I think Beyoncé is just like me and just late everywhere.”
Last week, Craig apologized after Al Roker pointed out his embarrassing mistake.
Craig started singing a Beyoncé track before Roker jokingly asked his colleague if he noticed they were on live TV.
The couple is known for exchanging banter during the show.
Al said his co-star threw a “shot in the rib” after a fun chat about football.
And he slammed Melvin for making a joke about the NFL playoffs.
The weatherman also threw shade at his castmate during a Valentine’s Day shopping segment.
A gift depicting a yellow and green exotic bird in a portrait frame caught his attention.
Craig pointed to the item and said, “I was surprised when I walked in and saw the Melvin family bird.”
Moments later, Al chimed in, “I’ve always wanted to get you the bird.”
“The bird” is a reference to showing or giving someone the middle finger.
The group laughed at Al’s unexpected jab, before Craig added, “Sometimes you do.”
