Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombing and lost part of a leg, was scheduled to record a segment for NBC’s Meet the Press, hosted by David Gregory.

Haslet-Davis says she requested that the names of the alleged bombers not be mentioned during the segment, but according to her tweets, a name was mentioned anyway and she became upset:

According to an NBC News statement via the Boston Herald, Haslet-Davis “requested that the alleged bombers’ names not be used in the entire program, but given the nature of the discussion we couldn’t make that guarantee.”
