TMZ reports that yesterday, Lange tweeted, “Direct Tv has suspended me from the N&A show for the next 2 nights. They won’t tell me fully why. Can’t continue w them. Sorry guys. Luv u,” and “Direct Tv are good ppl. I apologize to them for doing an offensive show.” The tweets have since been deleted.
A rep for DirecTV didn’t confirm the details, but told EW via e-mail, “He was suspended for one day as a result of inappropriate behavior and will be back on the air tonight.”
EW reached out to Lange’s rep, but as of press time, had not heard back.
