On Tuesday’s show, Hoda and Craig Melvin reported from behind the desk.

President Biden pledging disaster relief for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Fiona devastated parts of the Caribbean yesterday left millions of people without electricity,” she said.

The co-anchor then gave the segment over to Gabe Gutierrez, who was in Puerto Rico and saw the aftermath first hand.

However, before that, it was hard for viewers to focus on what Hoda was saying because of someone in the background.

As the 58-year-old remained professional and reported on a serious topic, a woman in the background outside smiled and waved from the window.

She then stuck her tongue out and held up her fingers in an “I love you” symbol.

A man stood behind her and pointed at her before the camera cut away to Gabe.

When the camera came back to Hoda, the area behind her was no longer in view.

The TODAY Show co-hosts seemed to be oblivious to what was going on behind them.

NOT TODAY

However, earlier this week, Hoda was the one who was slammed for her reaction to a serious subject.

She and Savannah Guthrie were on-site for Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral on Monday.

The morning show shared a photo of the two journalists seated next to their colleagues Wilfred Frost and Lester Holt at the news desk in London with big smiles on their faces.

In the snapshot, the four sported solemn black outfits with Westminister Abbey in the background.

Wilfred and Lester had serious expressions on their faces, as they remained respectful of the Queen’s passing.

But Hoda and Savannah both beamed large smiles at the camera, disturbing fans.

Several took to Twitter to rip the pair as “disrespectful” for making light of the difficult day.

“Yes because smiling at an international funeral is the look you’re going for I see,” one ranted.

“Wow, @hodakotb looks pretty darn excited to be there!” a second mentioned.

A third remarked: “The women are smiling like ghouls.”

“It’s a funeral. Why all the smiles?” a fourth complained.

“Looks like Hoda is very, very happy to do it,” another claimed.

“Why Hoda is so happy? It is rude,” a final demanded.

‘DO BETTER’

Hoda came under fire again, this time with Jenna Bush Hager, after their actions towards their guest, Tyler Cameron.

The TODAY show hosts sat down with the Bachelorette alum on Thursday during the show’s third hour.

Tyler, 29, was a part of the pair’s Relationship Dilemmas segment to provide viewers with his dating advice.

Hoda and Jenna teased their feelings about their guest on their official Instagram page.

In the reel, Hoda acted like she was trying to gauge Jenna’s attention on the day’s schedule, but the 40-year-old’s eyes were elsewhere.

The frame then panned over Tyler, who adjusted the fit of his suit jacket while smiling at the camera.

The post included the words: “When Tyler Cameron is in the studio…” with a pair of eye and fire emojis.

The song, Confident, by Justin Bieber played in the background to tease their lack of “focus” on work with the Bachelor nation star in the building.

They captioned it: “Don’t ask us what color @tylerjcameron3 was wearing…”

Some viewers were not pleased with the ladies’ behavior in front of their guest.

“Please do better. What if the tables were turned? Outcry! Please, I’m getting so tired of this. Not funny.

“Did you book him for his talent or because he looks good? This would not fly well if it were two men and one woman,” one person commented.

“I totally agree and don’t understand why they are still getting away with it,” chimed in another.

Others were amused by Hoda and Jenna’s reactions to their “handsome” guest.

“Y’all are so real for this,” one viewer said.

“Well, Isn’t he handsome,” someone else pointed out.

“I wouldn’t be able to focus or talk,” a third admitted.
