The Daily Show frontman Jon Stewart managed to accidentally cut his wrists while taping a sketch about U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner.
Weiner has been embroiled in a media frenzy over his use of Twitter to send a lewd photo to a woman. Although he had originally claimed that hackers were to blame for the incident, he eventually admitted his inappropriate online behaviour.
Although Stewart and Weiner briefly roomed together when they were younger and continue to be friends, the story was too good for Stewart to pass up on his show.
Stewart’s Weiner sketch starred Stewart in a mock news conference designed to resemble Weiner’s from the day earlier. All went wrong when Stewart broke a glass when the script called for him to make a margarita.
Taping briefly stopped to get the bleeding under control and all proceeded as normal.
