Yes you read right!!
Mr Barack Obama was reportedly overheard calling Kanye West a 'jackass' over Kanye's interuption of Taylor Swift's speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs, whilst doing an interview with CNBC.
The comment was allegedly made in an off-the-record segment, but was leaked by Terry Moran, the co-host of ABC's Nightline, on his twitter page, which he later deleted.
An ABC spokesman later said: "In the process of reporting on remarks by President Obama that were made during a CNBC interview, ABC News employees prematurely tweeted a portion of those remarks that turned out to be from an off-the-record portion of the interview."
"This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologise to the White House and CNBC and are taking steps to ensure that it will not happen again."
