Last night, news broke that the United States fired missiles at Syria in response to the chemical attack they launched earlier this week.

Rachel Maddow’s show was immediately interrupted by a report from Brian Williams.

This apparently angered some viewers.

From The Daily Mail:

Fans of Rachel Maddow have expressed their disgust at ‘sexist’ NBC after the anchor was replaced on the show by Brian Williams who referred to the US missiles against Syria as ‘beautiful’.

Williams, the breaking news anchor for the network, appeared during Maddow’s 9pm slot when news broke that the US military fired more than 50 missiles at the al-Shayrat base in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack on civilians.

Furious viewers accused the network of ‘sexism’ and said Maddow was more than competent to cover the news without any help from Williams.

Here are some of the responses from Twitter.

Brian Williams was also criticized for one of his comments.

Viewers also took issue with some of Williams’ comments on Thursday night, especially when he played videos of the missiles being launched and said: ‘We see these beautiful pictures at night from the decks of these two US Navy vessels…

‘I am tempted to quote the great Leonard Cohen, “I am guided by the beauty of our weapons.”

‘And they are beautiful pictures of fearsome armaments making what is for them a brief flight over this airfield.’
