The incident was quickly taken to Twitter and Facebook sparking a discussion on whether Guthrie flips off Laure on live TV. #Fingergate started trending and after fans and viewers began examine the evidence more closely, it appears that she may be using her index finger.

Guthrie defended the move quickly on Tiwtter, claiming that she had only thrown Lauer her index finger.
