CNN reportedly apologized Friday after one of its producers was overheard joking about President-elect Donald Trump’s plane crashing.

“An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday,” a CNN representative told Business Insider in a statement. “We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”

A video of the gaffe posted on YouTube showed CNN national correspondent Suzanne Malveaux preparing for a live shot at Carrier’s Indianapolis plant prior to Mr. Trump’s arrival on Thursday.

An unidentified producer was heard off camera discussing various hand signals with Mr. Malveaux.

“So he’s landing any minute. If I do this, it means he’s landed,” the producer is heard saying. “That means his plane’s crashed — no, I’m kidding.”

Ms. Malveaux appeared shocked by the comment.
