The LA Times is reporting that President Barack Obama called Kanye West a “jackass” following the singer’s onstage outburst at the VMA Awards on Sunday.

The newspaper got its info from an ABC News reporter’s Twitter account. The President’s “jackass” comment was reportedly made during an “off-the-record” portion of an interview with CNBC overheard by ABC reporter Terry Moran. ABC later issued an apology and removed Moran’s Tweet (but not before screen grabs by the Times and other news organizations.)

West, meanwhile, made at least three apologies the latest of which was on the debut of the new Jay Leno show on NBC.
