(KTNV) -- AOL chief executive Tim Armstrong fired one of his employees in a very public way last week.
It happened during a conference call with 1,000 people. Armstrong fired Patch creative director Abel Lenz after he took his photo during the call.
Armstrong issued an apology on Tuesday, saying that he had an "emotional response" and that "at a humal level it was unfair to Abel."
Armstrong issued an earlier statement that Lenz had been warned before about recording confidential meetings.
Many people are saying that Armstrong really blew it when he reacted so emotionally.
Abel Lenz has not commented on the firing.
