Daly was both praised and criticized for sporting the hat on live television Wednesday night.
Following the police-involved killing of Eric Garner in New York City, officers with the New York City Police Department have come under fire from protesters who claim they used excessive force.
NBC’s New Year’s Eve host Carson Daly wore an “NYPD” hat during the network’s live coverage on Wednesday, eliciting mixed reactions from people on social media.
