The campaign for New York billionaire Mike Bloomberg said that he would release three women from their non-disclosure agreements after he was hit hard during the Democratic debate about them.

"Bloomberg LP has identified 3 NDAs signed over the past 30+ years with women to address complaints about comments they said I had made," Bloomberg tweeted from his official account on Friday.

"If any of them want to be released from their NDAs, they should contact the company and they'll be given a release," he added.

Bloomberg appeared stunned when Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) challenged him on the NDAs during the Democratic debate in Las Vegas, Nevada. The exchange was widely seen as one of the more damaging interactions to the billionaire's campaign.

"A billionaire who calls women 'fat broads' and 'horse-faced lesbians!' And no, I'm not talking about Donald Trump, I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg!" she said at the opening of the debate.

Warren also criticized the decision to release the NDAs in a statement released immediately after the announcement on Friday.

"That's just not good enough," the statement read. "Michael Bloomberg needs to do a blanket release so that all women who have been muzzled by the NDAs can step up and tell their side of the story in terms of what Michael Bloomberg has done."

A spokesman for Bloomberg fired back on CNN.

"We'll continue to do as much as we can around this," said Bloomberg senior advisor Tim O'Brien, who went on to criticize Warren on her claims of Native American heritage.
